Mara Intrepids Camp

Masai Mara

Days 1 - 3: Masai Mara

Mara Intrepids Camp Location Map

Mara Intrepids is situated in one of the most spectacular locations in the world's best-known safari wilderness. The camp overlooks the Talek River, and is just a short drive from the Mara River, where over a million wildebeest and zebra make their perilous migration crossing every year.

Outside of the migration period, the camp still offers some of the finest game viewing, with large local populations of plains game including, elephant, rhino, buffalo, and all the big cats. Game viewing drives in open-sided safari jeeps are available daily, and as this part of the reserve receives fewer visitors than the eastern part it is possible to drive long periods without seeing another vehicle. Guests can also take advantage of other activities (at an additional cost) offered by the camp, including hot air balloon safaris, bush dining, nature walks and cultural visits to the local Maasai villages.

The camp is divided into four distinct areas, each with its own open-air dining area and ‘mess tent’ where private meals and functions can be arranged. Dinner is usually served in a large dining room under a traditional makuti thatch roof, while breakfast and lunch are hosted on a breezy terrace beside the riverfront swimming pool. Beside the main bar is a fully equipped conference room, where the Maasai naturalists deliver evening slide shows on the local culture and wildlife.

Mara Intrepids has 30 luxurious tents that are widely spread across a large riverside site to ensure guests have privacy and peace. Each tent is furnished in the classic style of the grand African safaris, with large 4 poster beds and reproduction furniture, offset by modern en-suite bathrooms. Each tent sits on a shady raised platform, with sweeping views over the riverbanks where a large variety of animals come to drink.

There is also one family tent, which can comfortably accommodation 2 adults and 2 children under 12 years.

The camp is run on strict eco-principles, with hot water generated by burning used coffee husks, and biodegradable waste mulched for compost.
