My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Intrepids this September (2013). The accommodations were extremely nice and the staff was amazing. Our game-drive guide, Dennis, was unequivocally the best. I honestly was sad by having to leave. We would definitely go again and we will be staying at the Mara Intrepids!

As other travelers have said, Mara Intrepid is located within two minutes of the airstrip where charter flights land, so you are met by your guide and immediately taken to the camp. Our first impression of the camp was very good. We were met by Stella, an Assistant Manager, and a very nice and personable woman, who explained the rules... More

When we first walked into our "tent" I believe my first words were, "I'm not leaving". I felt the same way at the end of our stay.

We stayed at the Mara Intrepids for 3 days during our honeymoon in Kenya. On the bright side, the camp is well situated and the game drives offer lots of animal sightings including the big 5.
