GUIDE ON OFFBEAT MARA CAMP IN KENYA
The Olare Orok, tributary of the mighty Mara River, follows a winding path through the Mara North Conservancy and creates a verdant riverine forest that is an absolutely divine location for your authentic bush holiday in the Great Plains of Kenya. Zebras, topis, impalas graze in the environs of the camp, and you will be delighted by the distinct snippets of information your warm, knowledgeable Maasai hosts reveal to you as they make you feel at home in the mystic wildlands they have grown up in. Even as you listen to them, you will be filled with wonder for the startling phenomenon of the Great Wildebeest and Zebra Migration that passes through Masai Mara National Reserve every year. Your stay over at the Offbeat Mara Camp, a mid-range accommodation, is made up of only a small number of canvas tents facing the wilderness offering an unadulterated safari feel to it. Erected on tarp-covered flat surfaces and powered by solar panels, the tents are set at a short distance from each other to accord the privacy you need on your intimate East African tour. The spacious, open lounge tent has comfortable sofas and a collection of books you can choose from the central coffee table. You could chance to spot four of the Big Five of Africa, the lion, elephant, buffalo and leopard around the camp and the conservancy surrounds as it is well known for frequent sightings. Rhinoceros can also be seen deep into the Mara Reserve. Relax on the porch outside to view varied topography, avian and terrestrial life traversing through the wilds of Mara North. You can also have your meals, al-fresco here while the birds of Masai Mara serenade you with sweet melodies. Every meal you have is prepared and presented with care that you will appreciate and reminisce long after you return home from your personalized travels in Masai Mara Game Reserve with AfricanMecca.
But even more memorable is the rustic charm of your tented rooms furnished with fragrant, handcrafted, rough-hewn cedar furniture. The camp has just 7 tents amidst the bushlands with wide patios outside. Only mesh windows and canvas walls separate you from the lush greenery, calls of animals, floral aromas and the soft breezes. Unpack for your exploratory trip in Kenya and put out your things in open racks or pen a diary page at your writing desk. The en-suite bathroom comes with double basins and a curtained off shower stall where you can experience another safari charm, that of hot bucket showers. Two of the tents are suitable for families vacationing in Africa since they are a combination of two bedrooms each. Every moment you spend at Offbeat Mara is an adventure by itself but on your game drives you will be able to view more of the diversity of mammals that Masai Mara is known for, along with over 450 species of birds. The Maasai guide aboard your custom-equipped safari vehicle, being well-versed in animal behavior will show you how to discern the animals from their camouflage in the bush and read tracks while on your bush walks. You will also be allowed the privilege of visiting the Maasai village close by where you will be introduced to their centuries-old fascinating way of living and they might even show you how to make medicines from the flora you saw on your safari walks. Also, optionally enjoy an aerial view of Masai Mara and its plethora of wildlife from aboard your hot air balloon (bookable via your AfricanMecca tour planner). And as the sun sets on the conservancy, sip sundowner cocktails back at the camp while seated around a roaring campfire followed by dinner under twinkling stars ending with the much-needed restful night slumber.
