Set in the shade of a thick acacia forest within the Mara Naboisho Conservancy, Encounter Mara provides all the luxury and romance of a traditional-safari camp.
Accommodations at the camp consist of ten spacious and permanent canvas tents, including one family tent and two triples. Children can be accommodated by adding a third bed in the tent. Each of the tents is decorated in neutral tones that blend harmoniously with the surrounding bush. They also feature an en suite bathroom with flushing toilets and hot-water safari bucket showers. Other amenities include in room lock boxes, solar and generator power, and complimentary laundry services. Guests can relax and unwind in a deep, comfortable day bed on their own private veranda with sweeping views of the plains.
The camp is situated in the 50,000-acre private Mara Naboisho Conservancy on the border of the famous Maasai Mara National Reserve. The Conservancy boasts not only a higher density of animals than the Maasai Mara but one the highest concentrations of lions in the world. About one hundred of the big cats live here. The area also has an impressive number of elephant, giraffe, wildebeest, and zebra as well as the rare and elusive African wild dog. Moreover, the Conservancy provides a vital corridor for the little-known Loita Migration, which sees up to 5, 000 wildebeest and 1, 000 zebra move though the area annually from the Mara Reserve to the Loita Plains in the east.
