The ultimate "glamping" experience - permanent tents set up with front porches along a small creek that branches off the Mara. I stayed here as part of an A&K journey and found it to be one of the most intriguing and special experiences during my trip through both Kenya and Tanzania. The staff is friendly and warm - lots of...

What a fantastic experience we had at the Mara Intrepids! Our group of nine flew into the airstrip near the Intrepids camp just before noon. Our drivers, Raphael and Dixon, were ready and waiting to take us to the lodge--so close we could have walked but they do not allow that. Welcome drinks greeted us and we were given an...

Without exception, each of our stays at this camp have been wonderful. We even call it our "second home". The staff is warm, friendly, and very attentive. The upscale tents are lovely and since they are located along the Talek River, one can actually view wildlife from their decks, or hear the sounds of the many animals surrounding the camp....

We stayed here for four nights in June. We are a family of four and got one of the "Family" tents, which was excellent. The entire camp is located along a riverbank and is surrounded by an electric fence for security. The camp is located right next to "Olkiombo" airstrip, which is extremely convenient -- saving valuable time. The General...

The Masai Mara was the highlight of our safari. It is incredible, and so the time you spend at the Intrepids is largely colored by your game drives which are amazing. Compared to other camps, the Intrepids is good but could improve upon some things. For instance, many of the others we went to did not have periods when the...
