Mara Intrepids

Vintage A lodge or tented camp with very good food and service, and many have swimming pools. The rooms/tents are of good size but perhaps not as large as "Classic" properties. Facilities could be "Classic," but located in a sub-standard game viewing area.

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.
