Cultural visits

Cultural visits

The majority of Encounter Mara’s guides are drawn from the local Maasai communities and are landowners in the conservancy. They are always eager to share their culture and way of life with interested guests, and visits to nearby villages and homesteads are easily arranged.

Game drives

Game drives

Game drives are offered twice daily and take in the conservancy as well as the adjoining Maasai Mara Reserve. In the conservancy, off-road driving is permitted – this gives you the liberty to explore every hidden valley and secret corner. Also available is the opportunity to spot some of Kenya’s famous ‘nightlife’ on an evening game drive when darkness falls.

Nature Walks

Nature Walks

In between the morning and afternoon game drives, explore the sights, sounds and smells of the African bush on a leisurely one- or two-hour nature walk.
