Encounter Mara

Encounter Mara is a unique eco-camp that offers authentic wildlife and cultural encounters like none other. Perfectly located on the banks of the Olmorijio River, amongst wide open savannahs and rolling valleys, the camp and its immediate surrounds has unrivaled densities of game, including impressive numbers of Africa's big cats and the annual great wildebeest and zebra migration. Guests at Encounter Mara will often find themselves the only vehicle in sight, while their personal Masai guide will passionately reveal a world of wonder to their eyes. The dining experience is designed perfectly to compliment a day on safari. A holistic approach and unique meal schedule, joined with healthy cooking techniques and innovative recipes, results in ample variety to suit any traveller's taste.  As part of the all-inclusive packages (meals, drinks and safari activities), Encounter Mara offers rare opportunities to experience the Masai Mara in a different way – through night game drives, walking safaris, guided star-gazing and authentic cultural encounters. These thrilling experiences fill the days with an enchanting rhythm that is never rushed or superficial and is always open to special requests or unique interests. The camp has a central lounge tent, central dining and bar tent, central bathroom tent and an outdoor relaxation area. This camp is approximately 40 minutes from Siana and 70 minutes from Olkiombo airstrips.
