We stayed at the Intrepid in December 2011 as part of our honeymoon. There as nothing about the our time there that disappointed us; from the friendly and helpful staff, wonderful accommodation, our 'own' hippo on the river below our tent to our incredible guide, Reuben, who ensured we saw as much as we could in the time we were...

Well, my friend and I paid very good money to go to the Intrepids safari camp in the Masai Mara. We arrived in the late morning and had a late afternoon game drive before dinner in the evening. That night the menu had Kingfish and Lamb on the menu; I ordered the lamb and my friend ordered the Kingfish. After... More

Just returned from Kenya, had a wonderful stay of 4 nights at the Intrepids, saw the big five twice over with many other animals. Our guide (Michael) was amazing, knowledgable and very accommodating and we felt safe in his hands. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone at the camp made us feel home and welcomed.

Dear Guest, I am glad you enjoyed your stay and generally rate us way higher than Namibia, South Africa and Tanzania. We are grateful you thought our staff were friendly and effective. We have also taken note of lack of flex in doing sun downer due to internal limitations. We assure you this will be looked into. Thanks for staying... More

We stayed at Mara Intrepids 3 nights after 2 nights at Samburu Intrepids. The two camps are very similar , but according to us Samburu had more intimate atmosphere despite the number of tents which is the same, probably because in Mara visitors are more. Masai Mara is a wonderful park: the heavy rain of the previous days made everything... More

We always wanted to choose a place which is inside the Masai Mara and we were spot on with our choice of Mara Intrepids. We stayed here just before X-mas for 4 nights and found the stay truly blissful. You are right in the middle of the Masai Mara.The tents are aesthetically designed, well maintained (thanks to 'Jefferson & Evans')... More

The Mara Intrepids Camp is located in the heart of the Masai Mara right at the Talek River. After landing at Ol Kiombo Airstrip we were picked-up in the Landrover by our guide James who showed us Masai Mara’s wildlife during the next three days. Mara Intrepids has 30 luxurious, beautiful decorated tents, mostly with Talek River view. The service... More
