My wife and I went to this camp September 2010, it was a special birthday so it was my choice to come back for a second visit (1st being March 2009, we had a great time), I was worried it would not be so good as the 1st. How wrong could I be, the staff (especially John), the food, the... More

Enjoyment of this camp depends very much on which tent you get. Starting with the bad, very bad.  We were initially given tent 30.  It was as far away from the main area as you can get but that was OK.  What was not OK was the fact that it was out in the blazing sun with no shade and... More

Mara Intrepids was excellent its only 5 min from the airstrip, the tents are amazing and the staff are very attentive. Safari drives - would recommend extending your morning game drive until 11, as theirs nothing more amazing than having breakfast next to your landrover in the mara! Other activities - walking safari is really good and very safe/ the... More

My nine year old daughter and I spent an amazing four days at the Mara Intrepids and I would gladly recommend this camp to anyone thinking of visiting the Masai Mara. The service, to start with, is absolutely first class. All the staff bend over backwards to make your stay at the camp as comfortable and enjoyable as possible and... More

We spent 3 days/ 2 nights at Intrepids in October and had a wonderful time. We stayed at the Heritage Explorer (close by) 6 years ago and that is a more intimate (10 tents) experience. Returning with 2 kids aged 9 & 7, we needed a camp that offered the same high quality safari experience but adapted to work for... More

Mara Intrepids truly is outstanding. The service is excellent, accommodation is very comfortable and renovated annually. Our driver was Samson, he is the best! He knows the mara lands like a native, being a masaai himself. We went in October and he still managed to find us all the animals...lions, cubs, a game/kill, elephants, ostrich, crocodiles, buffaloes, hyenas, warthogs, wilderbeest,... More

We took a family vacation (two families, children ages 1-6yrs) and had a fanstastic time at Mara Intrepids! We found the camp and staff to be well-suited and accommodating to our needs. The tents themselves are pretty posh for the bush - nice linens, a real bed, double sinks, huge shower, closet, drawers and all kept neat and tidy by... More
