Mara Intrepids Camp
Overlooking the Talek River, at the very confluence of the Mara’s 4 game viewing areas, Mara Intrepids enjoys one of the most spectacular locations in the world’s best known wilderness areas.
Mara Intrepids Luxury Tented Camp is made up of 30 tents widely spread across a large riverside site to ensure you have optimum privacy and peace. Recently refurbished to accommodate the modern, discerning safari traveller, the tents are large and spacious with private verandas to enjoy the plains, giving infinite views of the Mara. It is luxury in the wild.
Sitting on a shady raised platform facing the Talek river, each luxury tent covers approximately 26sqm and is fitted with a queen size bed and 2 twin beds.
It is furnished in the classic style of the grand African safaris; with large 4-poster beds and reproduction furniture, offset by modern en suite bathroom with a hot shower, flush toilets and all the necessary amenities.
Mara Intrepids is a short drive from the Mara River, where more than a million wildebeest and zebra make their perilous migration crossing every year. For the remainder of the year, the camp offers some of the world’s finest game viewing, with large local populations of plains game, elephants, rhinos, buffaloes, and all the big cats.
In 2004, some 75% of the footage for the BBC’s famous Big Cat Diary was shot in the vicinity of the camp.
Mara Intrepids Camp has one of the best children’s programmes in the region, with resident specialists “edutaining” the youngsters by teaching them about the surrounding wilderness while taking part in a number of activities.
Mara Intrepids is 298 kilometres and a 6 hour drive from Nairobi, while the all-weather airstrip enables you to be at the camp within 45 minutes of leaving the capital.
