Great stay but a bit overpriced
My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Mara Intrepids for a long weekend. Overall, we had a great time. The park is beautiful and we saw almost everything you could hope for on the safari drives. The tents were nicely furnished and our particular one was secluded and right on the river. The staff was very friendly for the most part. The food was disappointing, but our server was dedicated to making sure we were happy so went out of his way to modify the menu. The website advertises that the hotel provides boiled water for drinking, however, they don't. Be prepared to pay for water bottles. Also be prepared to pay an additional $70 USD per person per night for park fees. We missed that in the fine print, so were a bit surprised at the end. Alcohol isn't included either, which for many safari companies it is. In our opinion, the price is a little steep for what the company offers and quality of the food, but it was still a wonderful time.

Fantastic!
Absolutely fantastic tented camp with wonderful staff, each eager to help you with anything you might need. Beautiful comfortable tented rooms. Our guide Sakut led us to the Big 5 in two drives, everything else was gravy....and there was lots of gravy. We also were fortunate enough to see a great migration river crossing...absolutely spectacular. Highly, highly, highly recommended!

A lifetime of experience in 48 hours!
We went to Mara Intrepids for my girlfriend's birthday weekend and it was just magical. The staff were all very friendly and efficient, and gave us excellent service from the moment they picked us up, at the airstrip a few hundred yards away. The best part about the visit was undoubtedly the game drives. Our driver/guide (Simon) was quite brilliant. He found, over the course of just four drives, the following: A migration of 500 wildebeest across the river being attacked by crocodiles; a cheetah kill from start to finish; a leopard with its kill up a tree; a lioness playing with four cubs to their heart's content; a fully grown male lion less than half a mile from the camp; herds of elephant, buffalo and zebra, hippos playing in the river; and so much more. The only things that Simon couldn't find were a rhino and a unicorn! What else can I say, the food was fresh, delicious and plentiful, the massage on the last day was very welcome after all those hours in a Land Rover, and the pool was refreshing. My only complaint was the utter blandness of the cheeseboard. Across the border in Tanzania the Engiteng Company make excellent cheese from Maasai cattle herds and all varieties taste great. I recommended them to one of the managers (Steve). Seriously, it costs a small fortune to stay here... but its worth every shilling!
