Encounter Mara is a luxury tented camp, opened in 2011, tucked in a shady forest of orange-leaf croton and Euclea trees on the edge of a vast open plain in the recently created Mara Naboisho Conservancy. There are no permanent structures at the camp and thus never anything but canvas between you and the bush. The camp is comfortable and stylish, however, and certainly aimed at those who appreciate a bit of luxury.
Our view of Encounter Mara
Encounter Mara camp is a simple set-up which still feels much like a tract of wild bush where the camp has temporarily settled. We didn't find the service quite up to the standards of some of the other camps nearby, that said it is a reasonably priced option, and has a lovely bush-camp feel to it.

One of Encounter Mara's strengths is its youthful management team and local community staff.
