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

My partner and I spend 3 wonderful nights at Mara Offbeat. We were looking for 3 nights out of Nairobi before the arrival of our first born next month and our stay there was everything and more than we were hoping for. The camp was just what you would want on a luxury bush safari, tents were clean, spacious and... More

We stayed at three different camps in Kenya and think Offbeat Mara is the absolute best! Our camp hosts, Kyle and Lara are a charming couple who look after every need you might encounter. The food was wonderful and the whole feel of the camp is very friendly and fun. The tents are spacious and clean and the laundry service... More

I stayed at the Offbeat Mara Camp in early April. As it was my first safari, I can't necessarily compare this experience to others, but overall, it was lovely. The camp is simply/rustically decorated, but immaculately kept. My tent was very clean, and I personally liked that the camp tries to conserve as much as possible--we had re-usable water bottles...

We had the most amazing time and were blown away by the amount of different animals there. On the first night we were woken by a buffalo right outside our tent! We saw loads of giraffe, zebra, elephants, lions, leopards, hippo, hyenas and cheetah, plus many other surprises. The guides were very knowledgeable, and Kyle and Lara were fantastic hosts.... More
