Truly enjoyed a three day stay at this camp with my wife. This is my second trip to the Mara this year. June trip was for the migration and this one was for the cats. Saw many lions, a leopard and a cheetah with 5 cubs. A success! Our guide, Raphael, did wonders for us. The camp itself is a... More

My wife and I spent three lovely days at this camp. We were quickly on a first name basis with most of the staff, and they made our visit there absolutely fantastic. The food was great, the service was great, and the wildlife was great. Our spacious tent was nicely appointed, and we slept soundly in the large, comfortable bed.

This camp site is only small, but that is the appeal of the place. It is right in the Masai mara with animals all around us. The staff become your friends and the tents are right on the river with great facilities, except for the hot water, which was a bit hit and miss. Once we said something it did... 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
