Experience the ultimate wildlife photography adventure on our Predators of the Masai Mara safari. Set in the heart of the Masai Mara, this tour takes you to a wildlife haven renowned for its unmatched profusion and diversity of wildlife. While the Masai Mara is famous for the annual wildebeest migration and thrilling river crossings, it is also celebrated as the world’s big cat mecca. Lions and cheetahs roam these lands in abundance, alongside leopards, hyenas, servals, and other smaller predators. Capture awe-inspiring moments as you witness these majestic predators in action, from intense lion hunts to graceful cheetah sprints.
The timing of this safari coincides with the peak birthing season of various plains game species, including zebras, gazelles, giraffes, topis, impalas, and wildebeests. As these young prey animals frolic in the grasslands, predators seize the opportunity to provide for their growing cubs and pups. The resulting interactions offer incredible wildlife photography opportunities, capturing both playful antics and the constant hunt for food.
Our Predators of the Masai Mara safari is designed for wildlife photographers. With private open game viewers and a limited group size of four guests per vehicle, you’ll have optimal freedom and space to capture stunning images.

Situated on the edge of the savannah under the shade of acacia trees, Encounter Mara is a 10-tent camp within the Mara Naboisho Conservancy, bordering the famed Masai Mara reserve in southwest Kenya. The conservancy is known for its prolific wildlife and award-winning sustainability model that balances the needs of local communities, wildlife and tourism. It has an even higher density of animals than the neighbouring Masai Mara National Reserve and one of the world’s most concentrated lion populations.
Encounter Mara offers 10 spacious and comfortable tents, all with en suite bathrooms with double vanity basins, flushing toilets and hot-water bucket showers. Spend lazy afternoons on your tent’s shaded veranda, chilling on your daybed with a good book or just enjoying the Mara views.
One of the highlights of Encounter Mara is its unfenced design, allowing for the natural movement of wildlife within the camp’s grounds. This creates a captivating and immersive environment where guests can truly connect with the African bush and its magnificent inhabitants.
