About Mara Intrepids, Masai Mara
For the first time safari visitor to Kenya, Mara Intrepids has everything you could possibly wish for. Overlooking the Talek River at the centre of the Mara's four game viewing areas, the camp enjoys one of the most incredible wildlife-spotting locations in the world. Just a short drive from the Mara River, between July and August you can spot wildebeest and zebra as they make their dangerous annual migration, while for the rest of the year the camp offers some of the world's finest game viewing including all the Big Cats, elephant, rhino, buffalo and more.
The 30 newly renovated tents are spread across a large riverside site to ensure complete privacy. Recently refurbished, the tents are large and spacious with their own private verandas so you can enjoy infinite views of the Mara. The interiors are a picture of old world elegance and furnished in the classic style of gran African safaris with large four-poster beds, fine wooden furniture and modern en suite bathrooms complete with flushing toilets and electricity. The spacious family tents are a true home away from home - underneath canvas, they are lovingly decorated in African ethnic pieces and afford a spacious lounge as well as an outside deck overlooking the plains.
The main area of the camp features a swimming pool and sunbathing terrace as well as a bar and dining areas nestled underneath groves of acacia and fig trees. If you fancy heading out to explore, the camp's knowledgeable guides will take you on an epic adventure into the Masai Mara on foot or by open-sided 4WD. Photographic safaris are also available, while kids are sure to be entertained with an adventure safari. After a busy day, if dining in camp is a little too tame for you, Mara Intrepids can arrange the ultimate African appetiser - a sundowner in the wild, before enjoying a bush dinner with the animals and nature surrounding you.
