Offbeat Mara Camp is traditional Safari at its very best – private and small. The camp offers excellent game viewing in one of the most famous Safari destinations in the world. Just six tents, and a prime location means that you will be provided a truly individual and tailored approach to your holiday in the serene and unspoilt Mara North Conservancy, and close access to the famous Masai Mara National Reserve. Situated in 74,000 acres with a strict cap on visitor and vehicle numbers and has the lowest densities of tourist visitors in the Mara ecosystem, nestled into a valley in the middle of the wilderness which provides unparalleled game viewing.
Four of the “Big Five”, Lion, Leopard, Elephant, and Buffalo, are all seen regularly around camp. An enormous concentration of wildebeest, zebra, and consequently predators pass through the surrounding plains.
Enjoy full day game drives as well as evening drives in custom-built Land Cruisers, bush breakfasts, picnics, and the famous Kenyan sundowner. Visits to the wildebeest crossing points on the Mara River, Maasai village visits, trips to the Rhino Sanctuary, and Koyaki Guiding School.
The camp sleeps just 12 guests in six traditional safari tents. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom with hot bucket shower, wash basins and flush loos. The tents are all furnished with large handmade cedar beds, 24-hour solar lighting and the finest of linen. Informal dining is hosted in the mess tent or around the campfire. Delicious English Breakfasts, light Lunches and three course Dinners are served each evening. Guests can relax in the bar and ‘mess’ tent with comfortable sofas, a writing desk, and library with wildlife picture and guide books.
