I'm afraid I have to disagree with a recent review - my husband and I thought this camp was excellent. We really loved it. It was a brilliant start to our holiday in Kenya - and, again contrary to a previous reviewer, we really enjoyed the food and definitely far superior to 'school dinner' standard - we eat very well...

What a lovely start to my Kenyan safari. The camp is really comfortable. I liked the idea of a phone in each room, for assistance, as I needed to be rescued from the elephants that came up from the river at tea time one day. The park is quiet, didn't see many other cars, so got to see lots of... More

My wife and I loved this camp. Sure, it was not quite so recently updated as Offbeat Mara but this did not affect our enjoyment of the experience. The setting was wonderful. We will never forget being awoken in the middle of the night by feeding elephants outside the tent, they were still within a few feet of the tent... More

This camp has loads of animals, leopard, ellies and lions among all the other flora and forna one would expect. All explained by Stanley our expert guide. We sat and watched a baboon that had caught a guinea fowl being pursued by other members of the troop - fascinating. The camp,in our opinion however, was in need of some improvement.... More

Meru is a very different Park from the Masai Mara being quiet and beautiful, and I don't remember seeing any other vehicles during my stay. Much enjoyed my time at Offbeat Meru where I received a very warm welcome from Craig, the perfect host, his friendly, professional staff, and Frank the Reticulated Giraffe!! The food was excellent and well presented,... More

We had a fantastic 3 nights at this camp thanks to Craig and his team, but most especially because of Stanley, our guide. We were the only guests in camp which made it a very special and individual experience. The camp was great with fantastic sightings of wildlife whilst sitting in the mess e.g. kudu, monkeys, bushbuck, giraffe, elephants, waterbuck,... More

One word to start with. Amazing!!!!! I would recommend one thing for anyone who would like to visit the place, one night is not enough to absorb the nature surrounding the camp. The food was great. Loved the whole decor of the camp. I would like to thank the host Craig and his team they were very welcoming. Can't wait... More
