About This Accommodation

Offbeat Mara is a classic tented camp in the Mara North Conservancy, bordering the Masai Mara Game Reserve.

Game viewing in the area is terrific, with regular sightings of big cats and the Offbeat lion pride usually close at hand. Offbeat Mara’s focus is on a quality game experience so they aim for a maximum of 4 people per vehicle at all times, but you can book exclusive use if you prefer.

Activities include day and night game drives and a day spent exploring the main Masai Mara reserve. There are also opportunities for cultural interactions with the Maasai or a visit to the local guiding school or market (depending on the day).

Offbeat Mara has everything you need, without the luxury component: it is a solid 4-star option with an intimate feel and warm, friendly service. Tents are standard safari tents, comfortably decorated with traditional bucket showers, and families are accommodated in the family tent.

Because it is in a private concession, crowds are absent and the game-viewing is excellent as is the guiding. This property is a solid favorite of ours and excellent value for money. It is great for those looking for a classic, un-fussy tented camp experience. We love pairing Offbeat Mara with Offbeat Meru in Kenya's Meru National Park.
