Maasai Mara National Reserve
About Mara Intrepids
Sitting above a sweeping bend in the Talek River, at the confluence of the Masai Mara's four game-viewing areas, Mara Intrepids enjoys one of the most spectacular locations in the world's best-known wilderness. Mara Intrepids is 298 kilometres due west of Nairobi - a five-hour drive on well-maintained roads - while our all-weather airstrip enables guests to be at the camp within 45 minutes of leaving the capital city. Three guided game drives every day, Escorted walking safaris outside the reserve, 'Night Sight' safaris with infrared binoculars, Bush breakfasts and dinners under the stars, Romantic sundowners on the Mara plains, Visits to neighbouring Maasai communities, Arrangements for dawn balloon safaris, Transfers for fishing trips to Lake Victoria, Private parties on the champagne terrace, Lectures and slide shows on culture and wildlife, and Heritage's Adventurers' Club for the kids. Our 30 luxury tents are widely spread across a large riverside site to ensure guests the optimum privacy and peace. Each tent is furnished in the classic style of the grand African safaris, with large four-poster beds and handsome reproduction furniture offset by modern en suite bathrooms with hot showers, flush toilets and all modern amenities. Each tent sits on a shady platform, with sweeping views over the riverbanks where a wide variety of animals come to drink. 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 bar, there is a conference room, where our experienced Maasai naturalists deliver evening slide shows on the local culture and wildlife - and where corporate groups can indulge in a spot of 'bush business'. Children are always welcome - with a free membership for all visitors under the age of 12 to the Adventurers' Club, which offers a unique opportunity to show your little ones some of the last great wilderness areas on Earth - in the company of some of its most hospitable and knowledgeable hosts..
