As a family of 4, we had the most wonderful 3 nights at Offbeat Mara. We loved every precious moment of our safari adventure.

My wife and I stayed at the camp in early August 2014. We have nothing but good things to say!! Kyle and Lara were top notch hosts. They made us feel so welcome and do an amazing job encouraging (but definitely not forcing) interaction among the guests. The group sundowners were a brilliant idea and the other guests were great...

Thoroughly enjoyable stay ay Offbeat Mara due to the best guide and spotter duo of Joseph and Kap-an (apologies for any misspelling - if you reading this Kap-an!) Their knowledge of the Mara eco-system and history of the Masa people was immense, I saw some of the most amazing animal interaction with these fellas within the conservancy (both morning and...

Hosts Kyle and Lara made us very welcome on our 5 night stop. One or both were always available to see us off on drives, welcome us back, and check all was OK. Couldn't have asked for better service. Lara was also very helpful when one of our party was ill, and needed TLC. Guides were excellent, especially David, who... More

We were given a first rate experience in this authentic, small camp which gives you a real feel of being close to wild animals while being looked after very well. Excellent staff from camp managers to massai guides. Lovely tent with excellent view. Delicious food including lunch and breakfast in the bush. Driven and walking safaris got us really close... More

Let me begin by saying that this is one of the best values to be found in the Masaai Mara -- we loved being in the North Conservancy. The tents are rustic but comfortable with chic details. The food is thoughtful, plentiful and high quality. Your glass is literally never empty and no requests go unmet -- sundowner and night... More
