We were at Mara Intrepids for three nights during our stay in Masai Mara. The game drivers at Mara Intrepids are very experienced and do an exceptional job. The location is perfect and the tents are beautiful. The staff are all very friendly and helpful.
Well as for the rest, you really don´t feel the Masai Mara experience in this camp as it´s geared more towards the American tour operators. It´s more like the watered down Disneyland version.
The food is good, especially breakfast and lunch. I wasn´t all that impressed with dinner as it was nouvelle cuisine which I´m not a fan of. I really would have preferred a buffet as is done with lunch.
The camp does seem to have some security issues within the property as we were disturbed in our tent during a late hour by an intruder who was throwing objects at our tent and then running a pointed object along the length of the tent that frightened my girlfriend. I proceeded to phone security and the intruder must have heard this as we could hear him running away. The security people asked us for more information the following day but never heard anything further regarding the incident.
The camp is very nice but in my opinion, not really worth the money. There are so many other camps out there which don´t cost nearly as much and are excellent.
