We (a couple in our 60s), stayed three nights at the Intrepids during the migration period. Having lived previously in Mali, we were amazed at the level of comfort up-county at the Intrepids. The tents are very well appointed and comfortable, with bathroom and hot shower facilities built into the back part of the tent. Breakfast and lunch are buffet... More

Pros: While yearning to go and see the great wildebeest migration, my boyfriend and I were confused about where to stay while in Masai Mara. After searching through, we decided to stay at the Mara Intrepids and I must confess we had an exciting wild experience! The rooms are in the form of tents and give you a sophisticated camping...

My wife and I just returned from a 6 night stay at Mara Intrepids. The most striking impression was the friedliness of all the staff. They went out of their way and did everything possible to make our stay a memorable one. The location is also very good, close to several known crossing points as well as other lesser known... More

As someone who was born and raised in Kenya, this return trip after a gap of 16 years was a really important holiday. I was introducing my own family to my roots! We only had two nights and 3 days to spend in the Mara but what a time we had. Being so close to the airstrip ( a few... More

During our three week safari, I thought my travel mate might like to experience what I call an American camp. Although Mara Intrepids is Kenyan owned, it is geared towards large groups and safari travelers on their first trip to Kenya. It is large, unwieldly, commercial and perfect for many travelers. The food is passable, the tents are lovely as... More

Last month I took my family to Kenya for a holiday of a life time to see the Great Migration. Mara Intrepids was at the centre of our plans and we could not have asked for better service or quality of accommodation. We were royally looked after from the moment that we arrived and every effort made to ensure we... More

I loved the illusion of being in darkest Africa at the time of the first explorers. You could sit at the writing desk filling on your journal and imagine that you were walking in the steps of David Livingstone. However, the electric fence that keeps the troublesome lions and elephants outside the hotel grounds and the flush toilet, twin hand... More

Our first Safari, but it was alredy perfect. The tent had a wonderful interior design, the service was so friendly and spiked with little surprizes (like being woken up with coffee and tea). For the safari we had our own car and our guide adjusted the tours exactly to our needs (thank you Simon and Lucas!). The evening dinners were... More

Intrepids location on banks of Talek is ideal, with access to both sides of the river. Almost all tents are located along the river bank to enjoy views of crocs/hippos, but from safe distance and fenced compound! Tents are comfortable and luxurious. Best part is the service provided by everyone, from the person taking care of the tent to the... More

Mara Intrepids is a beautiful property with excellent staff and guides. Our guide, John, not only has years of experience but is also respectful to others and the environment. He's knowledgeable about the animals and the people. Our tent was perfect, we even had heated water bottles placed in our beds each night. And the restaurant service was impeccable. And... More
