  1. We are thrilled to say that there has been fantastic interest in this special already. We have had several bookings confirm and wanted to share it again so that you do not miss out! Doug Macdonald's Safaris to Africa has been given exclusive rates for a tented mobile safari camp on the famous Mana Pools floodplain. The camp, which has walk in safari tents with ensuite facilities, has been given permission for an extended stay in their site in Mana Pools which reduces their overall cost and so they are able to offer these great prices USD$350 per person per night including all meals, non premium drinks, scheduled activities, national parks fees and transfers from Mana Pools Airstrip. No Single Supplement!! See more about the camp on this link: Mana Pools Special Offer - 2017 For charter flights from Harare to Mana Pools it is $600 per person* return (1st April - 30th November) *(Sadly a single traveler would need to purchase 2 seats should there not be any others on the flight) We recommend a minimum of 4 nights on the floodplain and you should also consider linking this with other areas and camps of Mana Pools and Zimbabwe. Contact us directly and we will be happy to help you design and arrange your dream safari. bookings@dougmacsafaris.com - Chloe Cottrell and Doug Macdonald

  4. We thought we might take some time to tell you all about Encounter Mara, what we do, what we believe in, and what sets us apart. Where are we? Comprised of 50,000 acres North-East of the Masai Mara National Reserve, Mara Naboisho Conservancy provides an exclusive safari experience. The land includes contributions from over 500 Masai landowners and conservancy fees are directed back to these landowners, providing them with a sustainable livelihood. The Mara Naboisho Conservancy also limits the number of tourists who may enter the area, thereby reducing the crowds of vehicles. Guests often find themselves the only vehicle around, giving spectacular, unspoiled views of exciting wildlife. Initial research indicates that Mara Naboisho Conservancy has one of the highest densities of lions in Africa. One of the major prides, comprised of 22 lions, makes its home nearby Encounter Mara. The conservancy also has impressive numbers of elephant, giraffe, and other plains animals, in addition to hosting some of the rarest animals in Kenya, such as Wild Dog. Please visit the Mara Naboisho Conservancy Home Page To learn more about the Conservancy movement in the Mara and across Kenya, please visit the Maasai Mara Conservancies Website Naboisho boasts one of the lowest tourist densities in the whole of the Mara ecosystem, and indeed in any of Kenya's popular wildlife destinations, yet game-viewing here is arguably better than it is at many times of the year in the National Reserve. What kind of a safari can you expect with us? A classic East African safari with a very high standard of guiding; lovely, healthy food; friendly, helpful staff; personalised service; unpretentious, but very comfortable accommodation; and superb game-viewing Away From The Crowds. Who are we? We started Encounter Mara in June 2011 after we were invited to become part of the unique, proactive Mara Naboisho Conservancy - an offer we couldn't refuse. We intentionally decided that we wanted local Maasai to make up a high percentage of our staff - currently at 90%. We did this for two reasons: 1. The time has come for the tourism industry to start making a difference in the lives of the local people. Aid and handouts have not proven successful across much of Africa, but creation of employment has. It would have been very easy to bring in Kenyans from other parts of the country to fill the roles in camp, but that would not benefit the local Maasai. If the locals don't benefit, neither will the wildlife. Those employed by the tourism industry begin to realize that the tourists are there because of the wildlife and that they have a job because of the presence of wildlife. 2. We want our guests to have a fully immersed experience. Why go all the way to MAASAI Mara if you're not going to interact with the Maasai, learn from them, share a laugh with them, and see how they live? So whether you're chatting to one of the waiters by the fire in the evening, or to your guide on a game-drive, you continue to get that cultural experience as well as the wildlife experience. The Maasai have been a part of the ecosystem for over 300 years, and their insights into it are fascinating. As you photograph that sleepy lion under that Acacia, why not speak to your Maasai guide about their culture and the significance of Lions to them as warriors? Why not chat to your waiter or your housekeeper about their wives, children, and cattle? They're only too happy to share. What about the camp itself? We have 12 tents, each identical in size and basic layout. Tented accommodation includes: - Large bathroom with wonderfully hot canvas showers and flush toilets - King sized, twin or triple beds, dresser with full length mirror - Private length-ways veranda with sitting area, day-bed, and hammock - Nightly turn down service, including a hot water bottle tucked under sheets - High quality, eco-friendly shampoo, conditioner, and soaps - Optional morning wake up call with fresh coffee or tea and a selection of breakfast pastries A comfortable lounge that overlooks a natural salt-lick - a natural attraction for the local wildlife! We've got write-ups on Naboisho, lion research, cattle grazing, and local bird-life. We've got maps, magazines, books, checklists, and board-games. We've got peace and quiet. We will never have WiFi in our lounge tent. It is a place to unwind and unfetter yourself from the chains of modern society. It's a place to UNPLUG. The Hide We are, as far as we know, the only camp in the area with a hide. The Hide is a short walk from our lounge tent, completely hidden behind a bank and some Euclea bush. It overlooks the Ol Morijoi River, a seasonal stream, and is a great place for both bird-watchers and big-game fans alike. Its proximity to the long salt lick along the river means there's often plenty of plains-game, and guests are often treated to cheetah and elephant as well. Bush Walks One of the greatest advantages of being located in a conservancy is that we have the ability to get away from being couped up in the dusty, bumpy vehicles, stretch our legs, and see the Mara in a completely different way. You can choose to be led by one of our experienced, well-qualified Maasai guides for a medium bush walk, focusing on birds, tracks, dung, and the medicinal uses of plants, etc. A second option is to take a longer walk with our manager, Colin Smit, a FGASA Level 3 Advanced Trails Guide who has led walking safaris and trails in both Kenya and South Africa for many years. Day and Night Game Drives Another great advantage of being in the conservancy, instead of a National Reserve or National Park, is the fact that we can offer night game-drives. Naboisho requires all night game drives to be conducted with red-filters on the spotlights so as not to cause temporary light-blindness in the wildlife. This means our drives interfere less with the wildlife than traditional night-game drives. For Photographers: Our vehicles are completely open-sided, affording you the best, uninterrupted view of the wildlife. We also have detachable (not shown in the photo above) camera platforms that swivel 360 degrees and can be raised or lowered almost a foot. We can also provide you with our simple bean bags, or we can fill up your own bean bag. Our guides have hosted a number of professional and amateur photography groups over the years and have become well-versed in vehicle placement for good shots as well as just having a basic understanding of what photography groups require throughout the day.
  5. The crowds have left Masai Mara, but the wildlife in Mara Naboisho Conservancy is still bursting at the seams. Many thousands of wildebeest from the Loita plains to the North-East are still "Loitaring" (sorry, couldn't help it) around and gnu-ing across the plains with lions in tow. Elephants are back in large numbers, and our clients are seeing more and more leopards every month! So you see, right now is a FANTASTIC time to visit Encounter Mara Camp, so you can experience all this wonderful wildlife without anyone else around to spoil it for you! Book to stay at Encounter Mara any time between now and the 14th of December 2012 and get 50% off from your second night onwards! *offer valid only for New Non Resident bookings, and cannot be combined with other specials.
