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. With its new owners having an outstanding reputation, we think this very reasonably priced option, with its delightful bush-camp feel, is one of the best choices in the Maasai Mara ecosystem if you're looking for a keenly priced camp.
