Mara Intrepids Camp

overview

Safari Highlights

Few places on earth can equal this setting, on the famous sweeping savannah of the Maasai Mara Reserve, overlooking the Talek river, at the heart of the Mara’s four game-viewing areas.

Wildebeest in the Great Migration, KenyaGreat Migration

The camp is just a short drive away from the Mara River, where more than one million wildebeest and zebra make their perilous annual migration crossing; and in 2004, almost 75% of the footage for the BBC’s ‘Big Cat Diary’ was shot in the vicinity. Experiencing the Great Migration is one of the pinnacles of safari travel - but it's no easy feat. The animals move according to their instinct, and although their path follows an approximate route, the exact timings and locations for river crossings vary every year. This unpredictability is one of the aspects that makes a wildlife safari so exciting.

Bush Breakfast in the MaraRiverside luxury

The camp is built on the banks of the Talek River, with 30 lavish hideaways nestled along the banks – each one ensuring optimum seclusion and tranquillity. Tents are furnished in the classic style of grand Africa safaris, which large four-poster beds and handsome furniture from the bygone age; each one sits on a shady raised platform, with panoramic views over the riverbanks, where a large number of animals come to drink. The camp has open-air dining sections, with big-eyed bush-babies often dropping in for dinner, peering inquisitively through the canopy of trees. But for the ultimate Africa appetizer, the camp will prepare bush breakfasts and dinners in much wilder settings within the reserve.
