We've just returned from our 4th visit to the Mara Intrepids since 2006, we love it there. The tents are amazing with wooden floors, four poster bed(s), a shower and flushing toilet - my kind of camping ! You are awakened at your requested time each morning with your choice of tea, coffee or hot chocolate, perfect before heading out... More

We really enjoyed our stay, had a lot of fun. Our game driver was Samson and he was even more keen than us to find the animals we wanted to see. He found them he did. He was very good to us, even taking us out for a full day trip. The camp is lovely and the food very good.

I can't say enough how amazing the Intrepid camp is. We stayed there as part of a short stay in September 2011 and had a fabulous experience.

It was fortunate that Mara Explorer was booked full for that one extra day we'd wanted! This directed us to book with the Mara Intrepids. And did we strike lucky with this one too!! We were given tent no. 30, that was right at the edge of the camp, and right in the middle of a rich thicket of Bushman's... More

We stayed at the Mara Intrepids at the beginning of September. It really was the trip of a lifetime. It is hard to describe exactly how amazing the whole experience was. From arriving on a tiny aircraft and seeing animals all around as we landed to the incredible tent which was like a 5 star hotel room with the added... More

Within the hour of my take off from Nairobi's Wilson airport I was at the Mara Intrepids Camp bang in centre of the Maasai Mara Reserve. It is a called a "camp" as your accommodation is a canvas tent. But this is not camping as we know it. The tent is more luxurious and spacious than many a European five... More

We stayed here on a short 2 day trip in July 2011, and it was an excellent choice. The camp is gated and located close to the airstrip, and upon arrival we were welcomed by the friendly staff but more importantly by 2 giraffes just outside the camp. The camp with about 22 tents is very spaciously set up, and... More

Couldn't believe this was a tented camp. We had a fabulous time here and felt really special to have a chance to be here.

I know there are less expensive accommodations but if you are coming this far, the value you get staying here far exceeds the extra cost! Though everything about our stay was first class, the three outstanding items are the staff, the accommodations and the location (in no special order).

Stayed here for 3 nights as a solo traveller. Intrepids made me feel totally comfortable with that. Service in every aspect was outstanding and all staff went out of their way to ensure everyone was happy. This permeated through to all the guests who were a mixture of families, groups and couples.
