I have been to the Mara many times and found Intrepids to be one of my favorite places to stay. It is a good combination of a larger lodge with the services offered and a smaller camp with personalized treatment. Our driver was wonderful and very accommodating when we wanted longer or shorter drives. The food was good with a la carte dining in the evening instead of the usual buffets. The tents have recently been redone and are beautiful. However their literature suggests that all tents are right on the river and this is not true. We were a bit buried in the thicket. So.... ask for tent 11 or 12 for great views or ask for a tent with the veranda set on stilts. I would definitely go back!
