Sheltered in an indigenous forest bordering the Mara River, the location of Mara Intrepids for game viewing is second to none. Situated amongst towering acacia trees interspersed with the silver leaf crouton trees along the banks of the river, it exudes the true feel of Africa - wide open spaces set against a deep blue African sky. The thirty tents are divided into four very private areas, each with its own elegant "mess tent" and secluded riverside viewpoints.The raised guest tents present a picture of old world elegance, with giant four-poster beds and handsome mahogany furniture offset by modern en suite bathrooms and amenities.
Intrepids chefs prepare delectable al fresco dishes, all served with succulent salads, homemade breads, delightful desserts and the finest wines.Dinner can be served beneath the riverside acacias in the company of genet cats and bush babies, or in the dining room.
Activities take the form of morning and evening game drives in the lodge vehicles, whose comfortable seats and open roof hatches give panoramic views of the vast herds of game that make this area their home.At the most northern point of their movements, the annual wildebeest migration spreads across the plains of the Mara and the sight of nearly two million animals is a truly awesome spectacle.Explore this vast area where the Masaai, whose land it has been since time immemorial, live with their cattle in harmony with the wildlife.Visit a nearby manyatta and discover the lifestyle and history of this nomadic tribe or laze away the sunny afternoons around the sparkling swimming pool.
