Our 50th anniversary trip to Tanzania and Kenya, both in Africa, in Sept. 2014 was made memorable by the whole staff at this Tented Lodge. From registration staff Leonida, Yvonne, and Judy to our room attendant Gedion, to our waiter Nelson and the top chef Big Tom, we were greeted every single day with their warm personalities and their eagerness...

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Mara Intrepids for her birthday safari. It was near perfect from the beginning to the end. We were picked up from an air strip and went for a nice game drive on our way to the hotel. We saw so many animals. We were greeted with a refreshing drink and a briefing.... More

This was our third trip to the Intrepids, we met friends at Wilson Airport as a surprise because we had recommended this lodge. The lodge has gone through at least 2 renovations, the tents are still as spacious, mains electricity up to about midnight so you can charge camera batteries or ladies can use a hairdrier. Individual sinks, separate shower... More

There is everything to recommend this as a base for a Safari in the Masai Mara, accommodation, service, food and of course the game drives were all first class. The tents are spacious and well equipped and kept spotless by the staff - thanks John. The gentle wake up with coffee to start the day will be long remembered. All... More

I've been on six of the seven continents, but our visit to Kenya was by far the most profoundly beautiful and wonderful journey I've ever taken. Not only did my wife and I experience the best Nature has to offer, but the accommodations, staff and service at Mara Intrepids were simply extraordinary. Our guide, Reuben Ntuala, was outstanding - extremely... More

This is our fourth African Safari "camp" experience. The best part are the guides and the staff. Top notch in every way. Lecture at night very well done. They want to please (and do) in every way. Tents are very nice. The overall ambiance is more like a you would expect at a B rated all-inclusive facility. Mediocre food, breakfast... More
