We stayed here for 3 nights in March as part of our honeymoon. Having never been on safari before we were unsure what to expect from a camp in the middle of the Masai Mara but any expectations we did have were totally surpassed!
Our tent was lovely with a comfortable four poster bed and the hot water bottles in the evening were a lovely touch. Our room attendant Gideon did a great job in keeping everything topped up.
Meals were fantastic - my only complaint is that there was too much food! We actually skipped a lunch and breakfast because we were still too full from the previous meals. The standard of food on the menu is amazing, especially when you factor in that you are in fact in the middle of the Masai Mara. Abby did a great job of looking after us in the restaurant. Having a dedicated server is a lovely touch - she even came to our tent to see if we wanted some food bringing to us on the morning we decided to skip breakfast.
Of course when you come on safari though the reason is for the game drives and Mara Intrepids seems to be in the most perfect spot for them. We were very lucky to be able to see everything we had hoped for - leopard, elephants, cheetahs, buffalo, lions (we even saw part of a hunt although the buffalo managed to escape!), hippos, crocodiles and even an elusive black rhino. Our driver Rafael was fantastic - with his driving skills he should be a rally driver! Every morning he asked us what we would like to see and each day he managed to find it for us.
Overall we had a wonderful time here and will take away some fantastic memories. All of the staff really go out of their way to help the guests - a fantastic place and we hope we'll be lucky enough to be able to come back at some point!
