What's good about Mara Intrepids Tented Camp?

Masai Mara Intrepids Tented Camp

Mara Intrepids is one of the few camps built to cater to families. Set right next to the Talek River, Mara Intrepid Camp has some of the best views Mara has to offer. There is a good reason why up to 75% of the BBC’s big cat footage was shot around Mara Intrepid Camp.

Mara Intrepid Camp is located in an area of the Masai Mara that has a regular flow of animals throughout the year. Families can enjoy luxurious accommodation and up to two game drives in a day in an open safari vehicle.

For families traveling with children, Mara Intrepid Camp has an active children’s club that teaches them about conservation during their stay and keeps the children engaged in participation in various local Masai Games.

Mara Intrepids is a short drive from the Mara River, where more than a million wildebeest and zebra make their perilous migration crossing every July and August. 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, buffalos, 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 is 298 kilometres and a six-hour drive from Nairobi, while our all-weather airstrip enables guests to be at the camp within 45 minutes of leaving the capital.

Mara Intrepids is divided into four distinct areas, each with its own open-air dining area and ‘mess tent’ where private meals and functions can be arranged. Dinner is usually served in a large dining room under a traditional makuti thatch roof, while breakfast and lunch are hosted on a breezy terrace beside the riverfront swimming pool. Beside the main bar is a fully equipped conference room, where our Maasai naturalists deliver evening slide shows on the local culture and wildlife – and where corporate and team-building groups can indulge in a spot of ‘bush business’.

Mara Intrepids Camp and sister property Mara Explorer Camp is located just a few minutes from  Olkiombo airstrip. This makes  Mara Intrepids Camp a great camp of choice if you would like to fly to the Masai Mara. If you opt for a road package to the Masai Mara, we recommend taking up a Land Cruiser Package since that the ideal car to handle the Mara Intrepids terrain.

As one of the Mara’s most established camps, Mara Intrepids enjoys a very close relationship with the local Maasai community, from which most of our staff hail. Together with our sister camp, Mara Explorer, we channel part of our fees into local community initiatives, including environmental awareness training, the establishment of medical clinics, and financial support for primary schools, churches and women’s groups. The camp itself is run on strict eco-principles, with hot water generated by burning used coffee husks, biodegradable waste mulched for compost, and all wastewater recycled through our own on-site constructed wetland

How to get to Masai Mara Intrepids Tented Camp

Mara Intrepids is 298 kilometres and a six-hour drive from Nairobi, while our all-weather airstrip, Ol Kiombo, enables guests to be at the camp within 45 minutes of leaving Nairobi Wislon Airport. The airstrip is serviced twice daily by both Safarilink and Air Kenya from Wilson Airport in Nairobi.

Accommodation in our en suite luxury tents, three game drives a day in our open-sided Land Rover jeeps and free adventurers’ club membership for the children (3-11 year olds).

A normal stay is usually 3 days (2 nights) but a longer stay is advised for better incursion in the Maasai country and immersion into their culture and to fully enjoy the safari experience.
