Offbeat Mara

Offbeat Mara

"Offbeat Mara totally on the ball"

4 nights Arrived 19 Oct 2020
"We stayed 4 nights at Offbeat and had a thoroughly wonderful experience.

The staff are all enormously welcoming and helpful, relaxed but excellent service. Jennifer the manager is a force of nature and personality: a brilliant hostess and organiser.
Geoffrey kept glasses topped up and plates brimming. The food was simple but varied in style, and excellent in taste and quantity.

Offbeat is a place for safari enthusiasts - everything is laid on for game drives, walks and even Mara-thon jogging. Nothing was too much trouble for our excellent Maasai guide and spotter, Muli and Simo, who were outstanding as both hosts and companions.

Make sure to spend some time at the Mara river - not for migration but just for the magic of the location and to see what appears."

Basecamp Leopard Hill

Basecamp Leopard Hill

"Heavenly Leopard Hill"

4 nights Arrived 23 Oct 2020
"William (Manager), Manfred (Head Waiter) and their team looked after us wonderfully at Leopard Hill. We enjoyed a personalised, VIP experience but we also enjoyed chatting to them in more informal settings, learning about Maasai culture and life in and around the conservancies. They were terrific hosts and exuded a real sense of enjoying having us to look after. The sung farewell was a personal highlight.

Food was delicious and chef Robin was always on hand to chat about options and preferences: his various chilled soups were a delight and perfect for lunch.

Guiding was outstanding - we had Nash - a thoroughly engaging, extremely friendly and enthusiastic guide who completely knows her stuff and is fun to explore the bush with. We hit all of the high points, including a spectacular lion kill of a large male impala before our very eyes.

My only grump about Leopard Hill is that drinks are extra. Given the experience it offers, one might expect that local drinks were included in the tariff. Beyond that - it is faultless."

Nairobi Serena Hotel

"Nairobi Serena - a plush oasis"

1 night Arrived 27 Oct 2020
"A very comfortable final stop-over with very welcoming and helpful staff.

Perhaps a bit corporate in atmosphere and one of two dinner meals, a vegetarian dish, was disappointing. Nevertheless, it was a very comfortable bed for the night and excellently placed in the centre of town,"

2 nights Arrived 31 Aug 2016
"Really luxurous feel to View rooms at Plains Camp.

Guides and staff fantastic- vey professional, helpful and welcoming.

Saw cheetah (am) and leopard (pm). Even though they are collared, it was still a thrill.

Seems very heavily branded as an organisation - hopefully their commercial success does pay off for wildlife & locals."
