5 nights were spent at Offbeat Mara and I can honestly say it was the most wonderful, magical holiday I have ever had. It was my fourth stay at Offbeat Mara and I cannot wait until my fifth. We were picked up by the incredibly friendly David and Kapen whose wealth of knowledge was fascinating. They were our guides for... More

Just the most awesome place I've ever been. The camp and its location is just unbelievably beautiful. Just such a magical experience to be in tents and yet having 5 star treatment. On our drive from the airport to the camp we saw cheetahs chase a group of Impala, just incredible and everyday brought something new. Lion cubs, elephants, giraffe.... More

We spent five days on the Offbeat Mara Camp, everyday and moment was breathtaking. Greeted from the plane by the lovely Josphat, within a 5 minute drive from the air strip we saw lions and their cubs. The camp itself is stunning, we were in tent 5 where I would sit out on the terrace and watch the zebras, buffalo... More

Having travelled extensively around many lodges/camps in Kenya, Offbeat Mara Camp was up there with one of the best safari experiences. Upon arrival at the airstrip we met David and Kipen, our very welcoming, eloquent and knowledgable guides and within an hour we got lucky and watched 2 cheetahs stalk a thomson's gazelle sadly to no avail - but breathtaking...

Earlier this month we went to Offbeat Safaris Mara camp for a week. This was our second trip to the camp and we had our 6 month baby joining with us. The camp itself was incredible - well designed and appointed rooms, with spectacular views and often wildlife walking past. One morning we woke to find giraffes passing! In addition,... More

I spent 5 days at the Offbeat Mara camp in November (originally booked for 3, but extended as I enjoyed myself so much). I have been on many safaris in Africa, but this was definitely a highlight. The camp itself is very comfortable, well-appointed and well-designed to be private. It's not a Cons Corp type luxury camp - it's comparatively... More
