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."
