Activities at Offbeat Mara

Bush meals

Bush meals

Guests love to stumble across a beautifully arranged breakfast table during the course of a game drive! After an early start and a morning of superb game viewing, nothing beats a full English breakfast cooked for you in the bush!

Cultural visits

Cultural visits

The Maasai people are a fascinating and beautiful tribe who are proud of their traditions and love to show our guests their way of life. Offbeat Mara Camp work very closely with our local community and visiting these villages is a morning or afternoon well spent.

Fishing

Fishing

For some light hearted line fishing, the small Olare Orok River on which Offbeat Mara Camp is set, offers the perfect spot to try and catch your supper!

Game drives (day & night)

Game drives (day & night)

We offer unlimited game drives in custom designed 4x4 safari vehicles, with open sides and roof hatches. These vehicles are designed to optimize game viewing and photography.
Drives can be arranged at any time, with early morning and evenings being the most popular times to view the wildlife.
Drives can vary from a couple of hours to a full day with a picnic lunch or meet our team out in the bush for breakfast or brunch under a shady tree.
Being in the exclusive Mara North Conservancy we can also head out at night (until 10pm) with filtered spot lights (so as not to disturb the nocturnal species) and see what activity is going on 'after hours'! This is an excellent time to see lion hunting.
All our driver guides are highly qualified silver rated guides (who also have a spotter with them) and wherever possible we will allocate guests their own vehicle during their stay with us.

Hot Air Balloon Safaris

Hot Air Balloon Safaris

Offbeat Mara Camp can arrange spectacular hot air balloon safaris across the Masai Mara...a truly spectacular way to view the wildlife and scenery

Koiyaki Guiding School

Koiyaki Guiding School

All of our guides are graduates from the Koiyaki Guiding School, which is a superb training ground for some of Kenya's top guides. Guests can visit this school to learn more about the work done here

Sundowners

Sundowners

A famous safari tradition is sundowners in the bush.....after a full day of game viewing there is nothing more refreshing than evening drinks as the sun sets over the horizon, listening to the sounds of Africa. With a fire to sit around and a fully stocked bar it is not until the stars appear that you will prize yourself away and head back to your beautiful camp....hopefully finding lion or leopard on the way!
