This place was simply amazing. The food was spectacular. Better than any of the other food I had while in Kenya. Numerous courses and great personal service. The 'tent' we slept in was better than most of the hotels I have stayed in here in the US. It was a tent because we technically had canvas walls and the door... More

The Intrepid offers good value for money. Tents were luxurious; lots of hot water; excellent food - given that everything has to be brought in - attractive common parts, and first rate guiding by the local rangers.

I recently stayed at the Mara Intrepids and it was simply amazing...though it was only for a night. The ambiance is great, it's location close to the airstrip is also very ideal. The meals were ok... and we loved the idea of wake up call which came with a cup of coffee and cookies that you can enjoy from the... More

Mara Intrepids is paradise on earth, full stop. From the moment you arrive, every staff member greets you with a warm "jambo" and asks how your day was, taking an active interest in your well-being. The grounds are expansive and provide numerous walking trails from which, not 10 feet away, dwarf mongooses snuffle for insects and dik diks tiptoe by.... More

The wonderful accommodation in luxury "tents" was stunning - extremely comfortable and beautifully presented. The staff were all amazing - so hospitable and obviously passionate about their work, the environment and the animals. The guides were a great source of knowledge - this was my first trip to the Mara and it was a fantastic introduction - I couldn't recommend... More

My wife & I stayed here and we really loved the place. The facilities were fantastic but more importantly, the staff were wonderful, so helpful and friendly. The guides that we had made the experience all the better as they were so knowledgeable. The food was great as well.

Only spent a few days here but fell in love with the hotel and the Masai mara we had a mysterious guy called James who made our rooms up beautifully, but we never saw him. The dinner experience was brilliant always something going on

I've spent a lot of time in East Africa, particularly the game reserves, returning to the Mara for a 4 day & 3 night stay was so much more than my wife & I had hoped for.

This was our first Safari and I must say that the visit at Intrepid exceeded all our expectations and was a true magnificent experience. Location, tents, staff, food was all excellent and, if possible, the game drives was even better. Our guide had all the charm, knowledge and skills you could dream of. I will not state his name and... More
