Such a serene environment. The grounds are well taken care of, you can take nature walks within the Camp. We were received by Duncan who was very kind and professional. He welcomed us very warmly, and explained to us all we needed to know about the Camp. They have family rooms, facing the river. Loved the gardens.
Amazing safari experience
We stayed for four nights in Sept/Oct 2021. The location of the lodge is fantastic, being central to the Maasai Mara and right within incredible game viewing. Game drives were an absolute highlight and Domenic our driver found us some amazing scenes. Our tent was extremely comfortable, looking out over the river to hippos, buffalo and other wildlife which would walk past. The staff were all extremely welcoming and friendly, and made our stay easy. Food was delicious and presented beautifully. The camp is extremely close (2 mins drive) to Olkiombo airstrip so very easy to get to from Nairobi. We couldn't recommend Intrepids more highly!
The staff are amazing! The chef and food are superlative! The room is beyond beautiful. My room looks like a 5 star hotel in the heart of the jungle! I'm so thankful for this opportunity! Cleo, my waiter, has been so attentive, knowledgeable and kind. The food is amazing!
If you desire a riverfront stay, you’re in for a treat.
We arrived and got immersed into the beauty of Mara right from our tent that was facing a river with hippos. The tent is of ideal size and was comfortable day & night. A table to cater for room service dining would go a long way as we had to balance our plates in all places and ended up eating from bed. You get a personal butler that remains invisible but very efficient during the entire stay.. we only met ours, Stephen, at check out and could not thank him enough for the prompt wake up calls. It was our daughter’s birthday and the kitchen staff led by Geoffrey and Tom conducted an impromptu and hearty celebration for her; cake and a lot of singing that the two year old is still excited about when she sees the video. For a boutique hotel (sort of), buffet meals killed all the joy for us, this caught me unawares and I could not believe for the premium price we had to go for mass feeding. This and the packet juice as opposed to fresh juice dampened our dining sessions. We were unlucky to get a tent so far from the restaurant, swimming pool and parking, if that’s not ideal for you like it wasn’t for us, best to request prior to arrival. This and the unfortunate scenario for us to be there at the same time with some unruly guests who held wild, drunken and very loud parties every night we were there, thus denying us peaceful sleep, left us dissatisfied.
Great Lodge with a personal touch.
We stayed at intrepids in September 2021. The lodge has a great view overlooking the Talek river.We had a wonderful time,Tents are spacious and comfortable. Meals are delicious,the desserts are exceptionally good. Wake up calls are given with a cup of coffee to get your safari day going. Godfrey and Duncan made sure all the extras were done, and Ngala looked after us throughout. Romantic bush dinner was the highlight. Will definitely be going back!
