My wife and I just returned from a 3 day safari where we went with my brother and his family who has lived in Kenya for the past 11 years. The encounter staff arranged everything from transfers to/from Nairobi to the food we ate at sundown each day on the mara. The safari exceeded our expectations in every way. We felt safe and pampered and was in the middle of the wild bush (with lions, cheetahs and elephants), all at the same time. Highly recommended. Our guide (Andrew) made the trip extremely memorable with his vast knowledge of the whole eco system in the Mara, good humour and expert driving in a very tricky environment.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set in the sought-after Mara Naboisho Conservancy, award-winning Encounter Mara is the stuff safari dreams are made of. Enjoy some of the best game viewing in Africa all year round from the low-key yet lavish comfort of this superb eco-camp. Shaded by a thick acacia forest, Encounter Mara enjoys glorious views of the surrounding savannah, while closer at hand a salt lick attracts a range of animals throughout the day, from plains game to big cats. The sheer comfort of the traditional-style safari camp combined with the opportunity for bush walks and night drives mean that there are few more rewarding places from which to experience this slice of wild Africa. ... more less
