We arrived and got immersed into the beauty of Mara right from our tent that was facing a river with hippos. The tent is of ideal size and was comfortable day & night. A table to cater for room service dining would go a long way as we had to balance our plates in all places and ended up eating from bed. You get a personal butler that remains invisible but very efficient during the entire stay.. we only met ours, Stephen, at check out and could not thank him enough for the prompt wake up calls. It was our daughter’s birthday and the kitchen staff led by Geoffrey and Tom conducted an impromptu and hearty celebration for her; cake and a lot of singing that the two year old is still excited about when she sees the video. For a boutique hotel (sort of), buffet meals killed all the joy for us, this caught me unawares and I could not believe for the premium price we had to go for mass feeding. This and the packet juice as opposed to fresh juice dampened our dining sessions. We were unlucky to get a tent so far from the restaurant, swimming pool and parking, if that’s not ideal for you like it wasn’t for us, best to request prior to arrival. This and the unfortunate scenario for us to be there at the same time with some unruly guests who held wild, drunken and very loud parties every night we were there, thus denying us peaceful sleep, left us dissatisfied.

We stayed at intrepids in September 2021. The lodge has a great view overlooking the Talek river.We had a wonderful time,Tents are spacious and comfortable. Meals are delicious,the desserts are exceptionally good. Wake up calls are given with a cup of coffee to get your safari day going. Godfrey and Duncan made sure all the extras were done, and Ngala looked after us throughout. Romantic bush dinner was the highlight. Will definitely be going back!

Having been on two safaris in Masai Mara in the past, my bar was already raised pretty high when it came time for my third safari! However, it turned out that my third safari was better than my first two safaris put together…… times ten! Even the lodging at Mara Intrepids (a tent) was better than earlier safaris and I didn’t think it could get any better! Mara Intrepids succeeded on all levels, except perhaps one which I won’t mention as it’s really inconsequential when it comes to going on safari! The location is important and this camp has what it takes! Just outside of the camp, you will immediately see wildlife and the camp is located right next to Olkiombo Airstrip so you can fly in and get to the lodging within minutes. The driver of our LandRover was Samson O. and, if you are so lucky as to snag him as your driver, you are going to have the time of your life! This Masai driver is keenly aware of the animal’s body language, has eyesight like an eagle and hearing like an elephant! He enlightened us on all kind of interesting trivia about the animals and is such a delightful man with a great sense of humor. We felt very blessed to have gotten to know him and had him as our driver. We were able to capture great photographs of the big cats like lions, leopard and cheetahs as well as caught sight of the rare serval cat and photographed this little beauty while he chilled in our presence! If one hasn’t been on safari at Masai Mara, you can be assured that you will see elephants, lions, giraffes, cape buffalo, wildebeest, Thomson gazelle, impalas, elands, topi, hyenas, jackals, wart hogs, ostrich, crocodiles and hippos, and so many birds and other animals. It’s an awesome experience and every day reveals a new surprise. You will definitely enjoy yourself beyond your expectations!

Mara Intrepids was an amazing experience. The accommodations, staff and food were top notch. Our guide, Simon was great. He was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and was great with children. Simon was able to find every animal we wanted to see and was very accommodating to our request. If you make the trip request Simon as your guide and you will not be disappointed!
