GUIDE ON ENKERENDE TENTED CAMP IN KENYA
Enkerende Tented Camp, located within the Lemek Conservancy in the greater peripheries of Masai Mara, offers you a modest, authentic bush vacation in the south-western expanse of Kenya where you can immerse yourself completely in the world of nature and its incredible beauty while surrounded by the essence of true Africa. With the chocolate brown Mara River flowing alongside, the camp’s circular lounge adjoining the dining area is every bit pastoral with its thatched roof and screens built within tree branches tied together. Handsome statuettes, carved masks and fascinating artifacts carved by the Akamba tribesmen along animal craniums scattered around while the red traditional fabric that the Maasai favor so much is used to add that fiery dash of color to the rich tones of the earth. At night, the yesteryear lanterns that light up the exposed hut and the surrounding lawns lend a romantic feel to the environs making you leave your own world far behind while on your photo tour of Africa. The economy bush tents Enkerende offers you are hidden in the lush vegetation and erected on gravel beds. They are built in a non-permanent style that reminds you of the Maasai philosophy of respect for the environment and minimizing the carbon footprint. The camp has 7 tents for budget AfricanMecca guests of which three are low ceiling Mogambo Tents that offer you views of the splendid savannah. They come with gravel patios outside where you can enjoy sitting in simple safari chairs. If you would rather prefer a river view, you can choose from the three River Tents which have open sides including the entrance that allows in the cool, wilderness-scented breeze from the river along with the calls of animals and lilting melodies of birds. For daytime privacy and night-time safety, you can lower and zip up the mesh and also the solid canvas covering.
Budget honeymooners or families bush traveling in Masai Mara Game Reserve with their loved ones can opt for the two-bedroom Double Suite. This Enkerende suite includes a loose stone veranda alongside comfy chairs, footstool and table. You can also relax in the daybed sited around trees for tranquil relaxation in between your game drives. They also have shaded locations for having al-fresco meals that include a range of wholesome fare cooked in Mediterranean style accompanied by authentic Africa themed cuisine that you must sample on your culinary bush holiday in the wilds of Kenya. The chef accepts all kinds of requests from vegetarian to special kids’ meals though with prior request along with any other specific dietary restrictions. Enjoy your meals with views of the river where hippos snort to warn other parched wildlife visitors while crocodiles lie in wait for careless moves. But perhaps the most spectacular of all sights in Masai Mara is the struggle of the wildebeest, elands, zebras and gazelles against these carnivores as they cross the mighty river on their Great Migration from the plains of Serengeti (read more on when is the best time to go to Masai Mara for an off-beat African safari). Your game drives aboard custom-equipped safari vehicles are thrilling expeditions where you can view the amazing diversity of mammals and over 450 species of avian fauna. More exciting is the time you spend with your Maasai guide as he directs your exploratory expedition entrancing you with the keen knowledge that he possesses of this magical realm garnered through spending a lifetime in it. Later, as you accompany him to his village, you might get a chance to interact with his elders and experience their age-old wisdom. Enrich your adventurous trip in the Eastern sector of Africa with nature walks to understand the flora and smaller overlooked beings and also balloon rides (bookable via AfricanMecca) for comprehensive aerial views of the Masai Mara National Reserve plains.
