From their homebase of Deloraine Farm in the Rift Valley near Nakuru in Kenya, Off Beat Safaris, run by the charismatic Tristan and Lucinda Voorspuy have been organising horse safaris since 1990. Ex Guardsman, Tristan, is one of the world's great equestrian characters and his fabulous safaris are the talk of many a dinner table. Keen polo players too, Tristan and Lucinda inspired our local vet and his partner to take up polo following their visit and to this day they can be seen playing every weekend of the season at Cheshire Polo Club!
On the doorstep of their wonderful home is The Maasai Mara, here big game, untouched tribes and stunning landscapes combine to produce what is often described as the holiday of a life time.
As you can imagine it takes years of experience to establish a safari company that can genuinely claim to take people to true wilderness areas of Africa whilst maintaining the high standards of the old traditional safaris. After 23 years operating safaris in Kenya, Offbeat Safaris can proudly say they have achieved this. They pride themselves on basing their safari experience on 4 founding principles:
- Charismatic guides
- A passion and respect for Africa’s wildlife
- High standards of comfort & service
- Small exclusive lodges and camps with a maximum of 14 beds
