Offbeat Mara is has only 6 simple, but comfortable safari tents in the excellent Mara North Conservancy. The tents are low, key but incredibly homely and very much somewhere to relax into, looking out across the plains (all of the tents have sweeping views across the savannah).
Hot showers and flush loos means comfort is not compromised. At the heart of the camp lies the fun mess tent, where drinks and dinner are served, the camp managers head up a great team of loyal guides and staff who bring personality to the camp. In keeping with the camps philosophy of minimal impact on the environment, the camp has no permanent structures, but don't let this fool you. It is a solid, sturdy little camp which stands head and shoulders over other similar properties given its wonderful atmosphere and genuine authenticity. Somewhere to go and feel part of something pretty special.
Why we like it
Offbeat Mara is very much about the people and over 90% of the staff are local Masai who helped build the original camp in 2005 -all of whom rightly take great pride in their wonderful, homely camp.
