My wife and I spent parts of three days and two nights at this wonderful "tented" camp. Don't let the word "tented" fool you. The accommodations were first class and the food was five star. Kudos to the chefs! The camp uses solar energy for all its power and hot water. The hosts were friendly and very informative. The majority of the staff are Masai, who themselves are also knowledgeable, kind and protective. And our Masai driver-guide, Dixon, was the best. We saw a lot of animals but very few other vehicles. What a great stay we had. We highly recommend it!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set in the highly sought after Naboisho Conservancy, Encounter Mara Camp gives guests access to some of the best wildlife viewing in East Africa. The award winning camp is set in the shade of a thick forest with sweeping views out onto the traditional savannah that makes up much of the conservancy. As with nearby Naboisho Camp, the wildlife viewing is excellent year round and combined with the breadth of activities on offer and the comfort of a camp built to the highest eco standards, there are few more rewarding places to experience this slice of wilderness. Encounter Mara is a permanent camp with 10 comfortable tents. The intimate size of the camp means that it has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and very personal service. The spacious tents have been designed in harmony with the eco-system around them. All tents have en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets and traditional bush showers. The private verandah with seating area, lounger, and views of the endless savannah ahead means that you might struggle to drag yourself away from the captivating view! For families there are 2 tents which can fit a third bed. The lounge area looks out to a salt lick which attracts a variety of game throughout the day so you can relax and not even leave camp to enjoy your game viewing. The Encounter Mara team members are drawn from the surrounding communities and many own part of the land leased by the conservancy. Their sense of ownership and belief in our ethos is evident in the genuine warmth offered to every guest. ... more less
