Offbeat Mara Camp is a small and exclusive seasonal tented camp located on the Olare Orok River on Koyiaki Group Ranch. It is tucked away in a prime wildlife area far from other safari lodges and camps. The aim is to provide guests with great game viewing, away from the masses. Offbeat Mara works closely with the local Masai community, with many working as camp staff and guides.
Unfenced, the Mara borders the Ngama Hills in the east and the Olooloo or Siria Escarpment in the west. Gazelle, wildebeest and zebra graze in large numbers and where prey is found so are predators. Lion, cheetah, elephant, kongoni, topi, Thompson's gazelle, waterbuck, hyena and the primates can also be found roaming the Masai Mara.
