My partner and I stayed at the lodge in June 2013 after reading the reviews on this site. It came highly recommended by every tourist Internet site we enquired with and we were not disappointed. And I did go through a lot! From our arrival the staff were so helpful and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. As with all the other reviews of the Lodge it was the same for us. The rooms were perfect, clean and tidy. A fresh supply of towels, hot water bottles and hot chocolate in the morning before your early game drive. Everything with this hotel seems to work. The game drives are the main focus of the trip and we stayed for 8 days and never got bored. Every game drive was different. Our guide Sammy was excellent. His knowledge was unbelievable and he went that extra mile for us to see everything. We saw the big five within the first two days. The trip to the Masai village is highly recommended. Although do take plenty of cash as it is not as cheap as you would expect. The early morning game drives start at 6 and there is usually about 5 people on your jeep which changes as throughout the week as people arrive and leave. Yo meet a variety of travellers from couples, families to lone travellers. It's not long before you all get chatting and enjoy the experience together.
Our waitress was Abi. She couldn't do enough for us and took time out to chat and share her experiences with us about her family and background which we loved. Our tent was number 32 which was at the fa end of the camp and a short walk from base camp where you can see a variety of animals both in daylight and darkness. ( Nothing dangerous ). There are guards on th trail for reassurance and the camp feels very safe. The first night is always and experience where you ge to grips with animals crawling on the porch and tent roof whilst you are snuggled with a hot water bottle. And you never tire of waking to the sounds of Baboons and Hippos.
A big thankyou o the Mara Intrepids team for making our stay an unforgettable experience. If any body wants to ask any questions that we can answer please ask. Fyster@ hotmail.co.uk
