Mara Intrepids sits above a sweeping bend in the Talek River, at the confluence of the Maasai Mara's four game-viewing areas. The camp enjoys one of the most spectacular locations in the entire Mara ecosystem. Intrepids is also a short drive from the Mara River, where more than a million wildebeest and zebra make their perilous migration crossing every July and August.
The camp itself, with 30 elegant tents, is divided into four distinct areas, with separate riverfront dining areas and 'mess tents' ensuring exclusivity. The tent rooms have modern en suite bathrooms with showers and a secluded raised platform with views over the river. There is one large dining terrace beside the swimming pool. Activities include shared game drives, walking safaris in the Mara Conservation area, and visits to Maasai communities supported by the camp. Riverside bush breakfasts, sundowners and dinners can be arranged.
The Mara Intrepids truly treat us like family…. A complimentary bottle of wine in our tent…. A surprise farewell dinner for just the two of us…. So many of the staff genuinely greet us with the same excitement that we feel being back together again. It’s truly an amazing experience filled with warmth and love.Read More

When he left us at the Namanga border, after finding our Tortilis Camp Representative and transferring our bags we felt like we were leaving a friend. We will keep in touch through e -mails, and hopefully will meet again when we return to Tanzania. All of our accommodations were wonderful and the food and service was excellent. The staff seemed focused on welcoming us and making sure we felt comfortable. Each place was aware of Barb's low carb diet request and did everything they could to meet the request including suggesting and preparing some special dishes. Our research prior to the trip gave us that expectation, but it was great to have it confirmed. Of special note were our last three stops. Tarangire Treetops, Tortilis and Mara Intrepids. I am sure that this doesn't surprise you. These camps were unique and each seemed to focus on your enjoyment. At Treetops we loved the room, but felt very special during a Maasai barbecue complete with entertainment, not to mention being met after a night game drive by Elke with a thermos of warm Amarulla.Read More
