    Great tented camp in the Masai Mara

    Wow, that's all I can say! Safari in the Masai Mara is incredible, and the Mara Intrepids was definitely a part of that! The tented camp is wonderful, with amazing, spacious tents along the river. We saw elephants, hippos, impala and crocodile from the tents (behind an electric fence so safe). Calling it a tent, doesn't give the accommodation justice. It's very spacious, with a four poster in the middle of the room. The bathroom area is also a very good size, and well stocked with hairdryer and toiletries. The Safari itself blew us away, we stayed for 3 nights and saw the big 5 (Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Rhino, Elephant) by day 3. Not to mention the Cheetahs (and cubs), Giraffe, Zebra, Wildebeest and everything else the Masai Mara has to offer! Our safari game driver Dixon was incredible - what a guy! He was extremely knowledgeable with over 27 years of game driving experience. His experience definitely helped us find the very rare rhino, as well as his ability to second guess what and where the animals would be which meant we got some fantastic photographs. We can't thank Dixon enough for his efforts, you made our Safari experience. His love and passion for the animals really showed, and made the experience even better! As well as the above, the food at Mara intrepids was top notch. No one will go hungry! The service was great, thanks to Josphat, but you could tell everyone was trained to an excellent standard.

    O hotel fica dentro da reserva masai mara e do quarto (tenda) podemos ouvir alguns animais passando. O quarto é super confortavel e o hotel tem um serviço impecável (comida, staff, game drives). Nosso garçom (julius) e o driver (paul) foram excelentes! Julius sempre com um sorriso no rosto e o Paul sabe tudo de safari! Recomendo!

    O hotel é no meio do Mara. É maravilhoso. O staff é fantástico, super prestativo. Com exceção do rinoceronte, que nao existem mtos lá, vimos todos os animais diversas vezes. O motorista Paul foi mto atencioso e esforçado para que víssemos todo tipo de bicho. Espero voltar!
