The Intrepids tented camps in Samburu and Maasai Mara are an outstanding, luxury experience. The tents combine the comfort of a 5 star hotel with the experience of living close to the nature, in the middle of great natural parks. Especially in Mara I could hear lions roaring during the night and in both camps you'll wake up with the... More

We stayed at Mara Intrepids at the beginning of July for 3 nights and had a delightful time. I've been fortunate enough to go on several previous safaris over the last 20 years, in various parts of Africa, and I've not experienced the sheer volume of animals, including 7 leopards, numerous Cheetahs, Lions, Rhino as well as herds of Elephant,...

We stayed at the Intrepids at Masai Mara as the second part of our honeymoon having spent the first half at the "sister" camp at Samburu Intrepids. While I will try to keep the review objective, I have to start by saying that the Samburu Intrepids beats the Mara Intrepids hands down, in every way. The camp is very near... More

Very comfortable luxury tents , with all amenities . Large and spacious too and thoughtfully done in a very ethnic way with all wood and thatched roof. Consistently excellent service by every staff member, always smiling and attentive.

My wife and I spent a wonderful 5 nights at Mara Intepids. Staff service was superb and was at the least the equivalent of any 5 Star hotel. Food was excellent and accommodation excellent. The game driving was the highlight and was enhanced by an extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide. I can recommend without hesitation

We researched camps in Masai Mara to great detail before finally selecting the Mara Intrepids Club. And it was definitely the right choice. We booked directly through Heritage (the holding company, www.heritage-eastafrica.com), and they gave us a great deal. The supreme quality of service they offer came through quite clearly right from making the reservation to when we sadly checked... More

Mara Intrepids was the second of the Intrepids camps we stayed at while on Safari (the first was in Samburu). The Masai Mara, famous from the BBC's 'Big Cat Diaries' and other nature shows is a beautiful landscape carved out of Kenya and bordering on Tanzania. On our Safarilink flight into the Mara we saw herds of animals in vast... More

Attractive, fully fitted out tent. Loved the nightly hot water bottle and the morning hot chocolate. Delicious food at every meal - the biggest "danger" of my stay - easy to eat too much! Good program of game drives and other activities. My driver/guide Dickson was an amazing spotter. Really enjoyed the walking tour with John. One suggestion: Having a... More
