I was fortunate to have been taken to The Mara Intrepids Tented camp as part of a big mixed family group of 21 people. I am still trying to process this amazing holiday. I have been to Kruger in South Africa which was great, but this experience was something else. Where do I start? All the staff are just amazingly...

This was part of the tour package, we were on budget and wanted a tent with private bathroom. The tent is clean enough, has bed with mosquito net. Bath has hot water, toilet flushes well though there is a slight odour after you flush. They provide towel and a bar of soap each. The meals are prepared by the cook...

Great site, friendly staff, decent food, comfortable accommodation at a decent price. Close to the Sekanani entrance of the park and in close proximity to plenty of wildlife. We saw the big 5 within the first 4 hours of game driving.

I loved this place, everything was clean and the staff were very friendly. I visited in 2015 whilst with a group i was volunteering with we all had a great time. The food was very nice also, i will visit again :)

The semi permanent tents were so nice with lots of amenities within such as hot water, mosquito nets, and plugs. I've never lived in anything like it! It combines the comforts of a hotel with the novelty of living under a tented roof. The people are great and everything is so clean. We heard lions at night so you're right...

A great tented camp site tucked away in the Mara. We stayed in a permanent tent which had its own personal toilet and shower with hot water! Each tent had its own lock and electricity at certain times. The camp site also had a lovely dining area where you could also charge up other electronics. I would certainly recommend!!

We stayed here for 3 nights. The tents are well equipped and very comfortable. the hotel is located close to sekenani gate approximately around 20 minutes drive. the road is a bit dusty and rocky (this is the only negative part of the place) The nets are prim and proper. Tents are well built. The washrooms and bathrooms are clean...

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Masai Mara. The accommodations were basic but clean and quite acceptable. The staff was wonderful! Very friendly. The "road" to reach the camp - like all the "roads" around the Masai Mara - was little more than a bush free rocky, bumpy trail. Our safari tour company organized our own cook while...
