About the Property

From the camp's open-air viewing deck, visitors can observe zebras leisurely making their way to the nearby saltlick, witness a majestic giraffe strolling right past camp, catch a glimpse of a mongoose darting down the path just in front of you, or even spot a stealthy cheetah patrolling the plains. As the sun sets, while enjoying sundowners around the campfire, you can listen for the resonant calls of lions as they embark on their nocturnal hunt. At Encounter Mara, guests have the option to embark on nature walks in the vicinity of the camp or soar above the plains in a thrilling hot-air balloon ride.
