Encounter Mara is a super luxury tented safari camp, situated in a stunning location in Kenya’s Masai Mara region. This award–winning camp is set out underneath towering acacia trees, with breathtaking views of the surrounding savannah plains. The camp is made up of ten tented suites, each beautifully designed to provide the best in comfort and luxury. Each features en–suite bathroom facilities with hot–water bucket safari showers, as well as private verandas that open out onto the wilderness. Relax on the day bed and simply soak in the magnificence of your surroundings. The camp’s main area consists of an inviting lounge area that provides stunning views, as well as a dining tent, where delectable meals are served. There is a salt lick near to the camp, which means that wild species are never far: you could spend most of your time simply watching the animals pass by. There are a host of activities on offer at Encounter Mara. Enjoy traditional day and night game drives, or experience the thrill of a walking safari. Take your meal with you and have a picnic out in the bush. Sample a taste of the local culture with a visit to local villages and communities.
