I received an email this morning saying that Offbeat Safaris has just added two new (to them) camps to their portfolio. These appear to be existing camps that have joined the Offbeat family: "After a difficult start to 2017 we are thrilled to end it with some positive news. Mugie House and Ekorian's Mugie Camp are joining the Offbeat family. We will be handling their reservations for any new bookings going forward from the 1st of December 2017. With their mix of small, activity based safari camps and lodges and personal style in a vast unspoilt wilderness rich in wildlife they are the perfect fit for Offbeat. We hope that you are as excited about this as we are." Both appear to be in their own conservancy (Mugie Conservancy) in northwest Laikipia. Anyone know anything more about them? Something to keep in mind for future safari planning!
Hi folks, we are planning to go to Kenya this January, actually in the Massai Mara. Plan is to go to Ol Seki Mara Camp in the Naboisho conservancy for 6 nights (they offer a stay 3 pay 2), and 4 nights in the Offbeat Camp in Mara North (they offer stay 4 pay 3). Anybody has input esp. about Ol Seki Camp? Would that be too much time in the Naboisho conservancy? I watched up and down to find camps to fit into our budget (€ 6000 for 10 nights excluding transfer for 2). This seemed to be the most interesting possible combination. Thanks for your help Thomas
TonyQ posted a topic in KenyaOur first trip to Kenya. (MrsQ a.k.a @Thursday’s Child and I) We have visited a number of other African countries but never Kenya. Why? – ignorance based on inaccurate stereotypes of a Kenyan safari. Well, Safaritalk has put us right – many thanks to those of you who have contributed Kenya trip reports. The trip was booked through Expert Africa following long and helpful discussions with Richard Trillo (a Safaritalk member @@richard Trillo) and with Eleanor Dunkels. We had used Expert Africa to book our Zambia trip a couple of years ago and were pleased with them again. Summary of Trip: Wilson Aero Club Nairobi 1 night (January 9th) Offbeat Meru 4 nights Kicheche Laikipia, Ol Pejeta 5 nights Kicheche Bush, Olare Motorogi Conservancy 4 nights The rains had been heavier and longer than is usual. Before the visit we nervously checked the weather forecasts and hoped! All of our previous safaris had been in the dry season. Still, it would be interesting.
