It was a dream
Let me start by thanking our guide Ezekiel! He was one of a kind and just made our stay enjoyable. When i come back i definitely want him as my guide. The camp was great but its the staff that made it what it is, our room attendant Samuel was one of a kind, always had a smile on his face. Asanteni sana

6/10 Good

Not really what you pay for
The camp was very nice and the tent is comfortable. Staff were very attentive, especially after an initial negative experience. Food was good but nothing special. Tea, coffee and chocolate were cheap/instant brands and water is not included (first time for me). The condition of the tent is ok, but for the price i would have expected better. Shower head was dirty (even had a spider web) and the shelves were covered with rust. There was also some dirt around the desk area. My first safari was 40 mins late and they lied about trying to get me another driver. Honestly, this is not the service nor the hotel condition that would expect at this price range.

8/10 Very good

The hotel and staff were excellent. Except, generator power is cut off at midnight. If I had known this prior to booking, it would be a deal breaker.

10/10 Exceptional

This was a truly magical experience. Our driver Michael had a huge amount of knowledge of the Mara and the animals and we saw everything we could have wanted and more! It was wonderful being able to follow the same lions for 3 days and see what they get up to. All the staff were exceptional at the lodge. Our waiter Ngala was very pleasant and helpful. I also had an excellent massage at the lodge and it’s highly recommended to help relax between those bumpy game drives.

Beautiful place and amazing staff
We had a lovely stay at Mara Intrepids. The location is beautiful, food excellent and the staff incredibly friendly and chatty. I would recommend specifically requesting a river view as some views are better than others, and giving your bed preference (either a double or two singles) to avoid disappointment.
