We (a couple in our 60s), stayed three nights at the Intrepids during the migration period. Having lived previously in Mali, we were amazed at the level of comfort up-county at the Intrepids. The tents are very well appointed and comfortable, with bathroom and hot shower facilities built into the back part of the tent. Breakfast and lunch are buffet...

Dear Guest Let me take this opportunity to thank you for visiting Mara Intrepid and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Since we are centrally located in the park, putting us in the middle of diverse and lager amount of animals, I agree getting to the south end of the park is quite a distance but we have put...

Pros: While yearning to go and see the great wildebeest migration, my boyfriend and I were confused about where to stay while in Masai Mara. After searching through, we decided to stay at the Mara Intrepids and I must confess we had an exciting wild experience! The rooms are in the form of tents and give you a sophisticated camping...

My wife and I just returned from a 6 night stay at Mara Intrepids. The most striking impression was the friedliness of all the staff. They went out of their way and did everything possible to make our stay a memorable one. The location is also very good, close to several known crossing points as well as other lesser known...

As someone who was born and raised in Kenya, this return trip after a gap of 16 years was a really important holiday. I was introducing my own family to my roots! We only had two nights and 3 days to spend in the Mara but what a time we had. Being so close to the airstrip ( a few...

During our three week safari, I thought my travel mate might like to experience what I call an American camp. Although Mara Intrepids is Kenyan owned, it is geared towards large groups and safari travelers on their first trip to Kenya. It is large, unwieldly, commercial and perfect for many travelers. The food is passable, the tents are lovely as...

Last month I took my family to Kenya for a holiday of a life time to see the Great Migration.

I loved the illusion of being in darkest Africa at the time of the first explorers. You could sit at the writing desk filling on your journal and imagine that you were walking in the steps of David Livingstone. However, the electric fence that keeps the troublesome lions and elephants outside the hotel grounds and the flush toilet, twin hand...

Our first Safari, but it was alredy perfect. The tent had a wonderful interior design, the service was so friendly and spiked with little surprizes (like being woken up with coffee and tea).

Intrepids location on banks of Talek is ideal, with access to both sides of the river. Almost all tents are located along the river bank to enjoy views of crocs/hippos, but from safe distance and fenced compound! Tents are comfortable and luxurious. Best part is the service provided by everyone, from the person taking care of the tent to the...
