Mara Intrepids is an incredible safari stop for a number of reasons. First the reason so many visit Africa - the animals! We saw an amazing amount of animals, including over 30 lions and cubs, two cheetahs, elephants, giraffe, antelope, gazelles, and more. It is so different being able to see them up close, not on a TV, truly amazing.... More

We spent two nights at Mara Intrepids and what a trip. The lodges were fine, service very very good and food varied from good to fabulous! But the thing that made this trip and this lodge exceptional were the game drives. The lodge drivers are very experienced and know this area like the back of their hands. We saw a... More

Dear Guest, It is not usual for Lions to kill a Hippo. It is one of the things you hardly see so you were pretty lucky. This is the Maasai Mara thing. You will never know what you will see and I must confess that even Staff are surprised every other day as new things keep arising. I promise you... More

We have just returned from a whirlwind week in Kenya which included a 3 night stay at Mara Intrepids. The camp has a relatively central location to the game reserve and this gave us unprecidented access to a whole host of animals as we were able to cross the Mara and Talek rivers. Its location alone would secure any future... More

We stayed here for 5 nights- one night in two tents and the rest in the amazing family tent. The Intrepids brand manage to combine all the comforts of a lodge with the delicacy of tents. For the squeamish, these accomodations and bathrooms are clean and secure. I am usually fussy about bush bathrooms having grown up in Kenya and... More

Mara Intrepids safari camp is a real treasure in the mists of the vast Maasi Mara. The resort is amazing from arrival to departure. The service we received from our wait staff, Julius and Nelson, was exceptional! The food was delicious, tons of variety. You never go hungry with the large menu either. The room was a dream, very clean... More
