If there is one thing you should do in your life it is to go on safari. If there is one place you should stay whilst taking in the breathtaking sights, it's the Offbeat Mara Camp. Beautiful, remote location with the wildlife all around, really wonderful staff (Katie, Jamie and all the cooks, guides, security guards, water carriers etc.) and an excellent vibe around the whole place.
You're in the Mara North Conservancy, which is less populated with safari trucks (good thing) than the Masai Mara itself, but the wildlife and scenery is just as stunning. As it's a small camp, and due to the fact they have a fair few safari trucks, you're guaranteed never to be overcrowded in a truck when you set off on your adventure each morning. In fact, in our case, for most of the time it was just the two of us with our own personal truck and two guides...and all the Masai guides who took us out were exceptional in every sense of the word.
The food is excellent and the tents comfortable. It's only a small camp so each tent has the feel of being secluded...in a good way. Whilst we were there as honeymooners, there were also family groups and single safari enthusiasts - hats off to all the staff for making each of these different groups as welcome and comfortable as the next.
Amazing memories, only enhanced by our stay at this lovely camp. Big thanks to the management team of Katie and Jamie who were superb and with whom we laughed most evenings away with a few G&Ts!

PS. If your lucky enough you'll even get a game of bush football in with the local Masai!
