Built to the highest eco-standards, traditional safari-style Encounter Mara is hidden under a magnificent canopy of acacia trees. Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in the canvas dining tent in the center of camp, against a backdrop of the sights, sounds and smells of the bush. The cozy lounge area is furnished in a simple yet contemporary style that allows the views of the Maasai Mara to take center stage. With the nearby salt lick attracting regular visitors from plains game to big cats, one would be excused for spending the entire day in camp, watching the wildlife come to them. Delicious homemade meals are served in the dining tent as well as outside in the fresh air whenever the weather allows. Picnic-style breakfasts are served out in the bush during morning game drives, and packed lunches are available to extend the game-viewing time. Sundowners and snacks are served as the sunset lights up the sky, followed by a gourmet-style dinner in camp.
