My last visit to Mara intrepid was in 2003, and all I remember is thinking wow. Can't wait to come back. So we had a family trip in Dec 2012 over Christmas. Such a disappointment!!! The tents seemed tired and old, old towels, and not much atmosphere. I recall them being much better way back in 2003. We planned the... More

Dear Guest, I must confess this surprises me. The tents in Mara Intrepids were just refurbished a few years ago and this is the first time i have seen comments to the contrary.

We just returned from a twelve day trip to Kenya. The highlight of the trip was our stay at Mara Intrepids. I was a little anxious about the prospect of staying in a tented camp as opposed to a lodge, but I am so happy we decided on Mara Intrepids. I can't think of anything that could have improved the...

Great place for a family safari. The game viewing was fantastic. John was great and knowledgeable and considerate. But the lodge really gave the edge. We've stayed at many places in east Africa and this was by far the best and relaxing. Warm attentive (but not too attentive) staff. Thank you Dennis in the restaurant and suzanne at the front...

As a couple with an 11 year old, we came here with very high expectations for our 4 night stay, on this- our 4th trip to Kenya/ Tanzania. We had read all the reviews on trip advisor and accordingly reserved a family tent. We even got an e-mail confirmation. However when we reached, we were very disappointed to be told... More

We researched long and hard before deciding to stay at Intrepid, we certainly made a good choice. We flew from Nairobi with Safarilink - a remarkably smooth flight on a 13 seater plane (one of those next to the pilot!). We were met at the 'airport' by our driver and driven a few hundred meters to the camp. From the... More
