A fantastic honeymoon experience. First class service, top quality food, amazing luxury 'tents' and the best location. The wake up call service with fresh coffee and hot chocolate brought to your tent in the early AM before your first game drive is very welcome, as is the regular supply of hot towels to freshen up. This is only topped by...

Every staff member was exceptional, from transfer & greet at the airstrip (a walking distance to entrance of camp), to check in, to front office staff (Suzanne is helpful & informative). Couldn't have asked for a better 1st time safari. Tents are fabulous, and overlook the river (I had #12)..Restaurant staff is friendly and will always address you by name...

We stayed at the Mara Intrepids for three nights in early September, 2013. The location was conveniently located near one the airports in the Masai Mara, yet the Intrepids felt very isolated. This is a great facility, with excellent tents and beautiful landscaping. Our tents (16 and 18) were located above a river--great views and very private. The food was...
