Offbeat Meru Camp is a 12 bedded luxury semi-permanent camp situated just outside the park in Bisanandi National Reserve, set above the pretty Bisanandi River. Meru National Park offers visitors a chance to visit one of Kenya’s most magical parks away from the masses. The park has a wide variety of landscapes and is dominated by savannah, but includes riverine forest and swamps. The park is bisected by 13 rivers which flow towards the Tana River in the south and rise in the Nyambene Hills in the west.

The park has excellent game viewing opportunities which include lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, black and white rhino’s, eland, gerenuk, beisa oryx, grant’s gazelle, grevy’s zebra, lesser kudu and reticulated giraffe as well as over 280 species of birds.

The camp itself comprises of six large tents, three twins and three doubles. Each tent is furnished with a huge iron bed and has its own en-suite bathroom, with traditional bucket shower and flushing loo. In addition, there is 24 hour solar lighting in the tents, whilst the rest of the camp is lit by traditional tilly lamps. Informal dining is hosted in the mess tent or around the stunning swimming pool. There is also a spacious living room with comfortable sofas, a writing table and a fully stocked bar.

There is much to do from Meru camp. The team can arrange both day and evening game drives in fully equipped custom-designed Landrover’s/Landcruisers. You can take short guided walks, enjoy traditional bush breakfasts and sundowners and fly fishing is also very popular from this camp.

DAY 4 Meru – Sosian

This morning you will be transferred back to the airstrip for your private charter or road transfer to Sosian Lodge. On arrival you will then be met by a driver/guide and transferred to Sosian Ranch. You will spend the next 3 nights here.

DAY 4 - 6 Sosian Lodge, Laikipia (3 nights)

Sosian’, the Samburu word for ‘Wild Date Palm’, combines the tame with the wild; ideal for those looking for a unique and intimate bush experience. The 24,000-acre private, working ranch sits on the Laikipia plateau, 80kms west of Mt Kenya, offering pure wilderness, with more than 250 species of birdlife and an abundance of game species with four of the big five being found at Sosian Ranch, plus rare species such as Wild dogs, Jackson’s hartebeest and Grevy’s zebra.

Guests are accommodated in an elegant 1940’s farmhouse that has been beautifully renovated. The lodge sleeps 14 people with more space for children if needed and has a swimming pool, tennis court, and organic vegetable garden.

Sosian offers a huge range of activities including walking, horse-riding, camel safaris, game-drives, night-drives, fishing, archery, tennis and swimming in the waterfalls behind the ranch house. Guests are also encouraged to participate in ranch life, such as dipping cattle.

DAY 7 Sosian – Masai Mara

This morning you will leave Sosian after breakfast and be driven to Loisaba or Nanyuki Airstrip for your scheduled flight to Masai Mara. On arrival you will be met and driven to Offbeat Mara camp.

DAY 7 - 9 Offbeat Mara Camp, Masai Mara (3 nights)

Offbeat Mara Camp is a 12 bed luxury semi-permanent camp situated on the Mara North Conservancy. This unspoilt part of Masailand is an area full of wildlife but far from any lodge. Offbeat Mara Camp employs and trains local Masai guides and works with the community employing many in the camp staff. The Mara offers amazing game viewing throughout the year and features the annual wildebeest migration in July – September.

The camp sleeps only twelve guests in six large tents – three doubles and three twins. Each tent has its own en-suite bathroom with hot bucket showers, wash basins and flush loos. The spacious tents are all furnished with large, hand made cedar beds, 24 hour solar lighting and the finest linen. Informal dining is hosted in the mess tent or around the campfire. Delicious English breakfasts, lighter lunches and three course dinners are served each evening. Guests can also relax in the bar and living room tent, which is furnished with comfortable sofas, a writing desk, library and fully stocked bar.

By now you will be familiar with enjoying the bush breakfasts and sundowners provided by the Offbeat camps, but the day and night game drives are different in every location. Here you will also have an opportunity to mix with the local Masai community – a great experience.

DAY 10 Masai Mara - Nairobi

Today you will take your scheduled flight back to Wilson Airport, Nairobi and will be met once again by an Offbeat Safaris representative. You will then be driven to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for your flight home
