We stayed here for 2 nights during a 14 day A & K safari through Kenya and Tanzania. It was one of our early tent experiences of the 2 week trip in a permanent tented camp and it was great fun. Upon arriving, we were welcomed graciously with a fruit plate and cookies ( the plate personalized with our names in icing) in our tent. Everyday they refilled with fresh fruit and cookies. The tents are very well maintained though they are a bit close together and personally this would be a camp for couples, friends and families. A more intimate and romantic stay would be, I think from my visit, better at the Mara Explorer Camp nearby where the tents are much further apart and more remote - overall a much smaller camp than Mara Intrepids. I was very impressed with the breakfast and lunch buffets at Mara Intrepids which were extensive and also the vegetarian option offered daily. Dinner was served and was always a treat. Every evening a presentation, mostly educational about the Masai tribes, customs, and the local animals, was offered in the bar area which overlooked the Talek River. One animal that we heard but never saw was a bushbaby. He decided to scream one evening above our tent and it was a good hour later when he finally quieted down and moved on. The locals said that it sounded like a warning noise and that maybe he had seen from his perch high in the tree, a lion across the river. This camp was fenced so you could walk around after dinner by yourself unlike other camps that we visited that were not fenced. We also enjoyed going up to the lookout and watching the small planes land as well as the Marabou Storks sitting in the trees.
