Encounter Mara Camp is small intimate camp ideally located in a private conservancy. Naboishi Conservancy shares an unfenced boundary with the Masai Mara Reserve, giving guest access to the best of the reserve as well as privacy within the conservancy. The camp is tucked away in a stunning, private valley. It is a unique, eco-friendly, classic safari camp that offers authentic wildlife and cultural encounters like none other. The camp is situated on the banks of the Olmorijio River, amongst wide open savannahs and rolling valleys, the camp and its immediate surrounds boasts unrivaled densities of game, including impressive numbers of Africa's big cats and the annual great wildebeest and zebra
Game drives will be conducted in Encounter Mara 4×4 open-air safari vehicles and led by expert Maasai guides. Because of the regulations of Mara Naboisho conservancy, numbers of tourists will be limited. Therefore, guests will often find themselves with a private view of exquisite game, unhindered by the masses of safari vans one often finds in the Masai Mara Reserve. Mara Naboisho Conservancy is known for its high density of animals and comes close to leading Africa in the highest density of lions. The wide variety of species abundant in Mara Naboisho includes cheetah, leopard, elephant, giraffe, zebra and the elusive wild dog and rhino. Guests will also have a front row seat to staggering numbers of wildebeest during the annual migration.
Unlike the vast majority of lodges in the Masai Mara, the camp’s location in a private conservancy also allows for sought-after activities such as night game drives. Night drives are conducted after enjoying a breathtaking Mara sunset from one of the many sundowner spots. For Mara Encounter’s guests, as the light fades and the night’s first stars appear, a red-filtered spotlight is used to enjoy the nocturnal action as the group makes its way back to camp. This is often one of the most exciting times in the bush as the big cats start to hunt, and lion, leopard, aardwolf, porcupine, grazing hippos and many other nocturnal species are regularly spotted.
