GUIDE ON ENCOUNTER MARA IN KENYA
In a secluded glade of a verdant forest in Mara Naboisho Conservancy and offset by the golden savannah grasses is the site of the Encounter Mara Camp, a mid-range bush accommodation for your authentic AfricanMecca safari vacation in the secluded wilds of Masai Mara. With a keen focus leaving minimal footprint on the ecosystem where it is located, the entire campsite is made of canvas tents setup on firmed surfaces covered with a tarp. Directly facing the camp is a salt-lick, and as you relax in the camp lounge in plush sofas, comfortable foot stools and informative literature, you can watch as animals visit to replenish the minerals so vital for their health. Or spend time on the wide patio in safari chairs with your Maasai guide who will talk to your kids about the wondrous wildlife they will encounter on their game drives. Explore the natural flora and fauna lands in a special customized safari vehicle where your guide on board will enchant you with anecdotes from his childhood when he spent all his time around terrestrial, aquatic and avian life. Families choose this time to inculcate in their kids a respect for nature as they tour the great plains of Kenya on drives and nature walks where they learn how to identify spoors, droppings, diverse insects and reptile life of Masai Mara Game Reserve to floral uses for medicinal purposes. A visit to the nearby Maasai village is a rare privilege where you can be welcomed into their world of centuries-old traditions and customs alongside seeing first-hand their skills to make fire, re-plastering of their traditional house made from cattle dung, milking cows and animal husbandry, fashioning gorgeous bead jewelry and ingenious weapons. You could also go on a balloon safari that is an exciting avian adventure as you waft over the land and perhaps view the Great Masai Mara – Serengeti Wildebeest Migration passaging the plains in a thundering stream alongside zebras and gazelles.
Return to Encounter Mara Camp in between your game drives for delicious meals served to you in the mess tent or outdoors underneath shaded trees. Indoors, you will liken the simple African themed ambience of colorful wall hangings adorned with ethnic motifs and woven baskets. Your outdoor al-fresco meals are served to you under the trees, tranquil yet interactive experiences on your intimate trip in Africa with zebras and giraffes grazing close by. Later, you could retire to your tent for an afternoon of relaxation in the hammock under the trees or on the roomy daybed where you can snuggle up with your loved one. The camp offers 10 spacious tent including a dual-interconnected family tent; each curtained off from the others with dense shrubbery. Choose from tents with a large king size bed or one that also includes two single beds for those who prefer to sleep separately. Two triple bedded tents are also available On your personalized Kenya bush vacation, unpack your clothing into the emblematic open hanger-shelf closets alongside the traditional wooden chest with a padlock as your safe storage box. The tents are very roomy with entire mesh walls open to nature that let in the cool, wilderness-scented zephyrs and sounds of birds chirping. The en-suite bathroom includes double vanity and hot showers. Enjoy the homely care the staff provides in the form of a turndown service and hot water bottles to keep you warm at night. Each morning, you will be woken to a hot beverage and biting before you set out on another day of exploration on your outback safari travels in Mara Naboisho with AfricanMecca.
