Mara Intrepids Camp (Masai Mara) Kenya
Mara Intrepids Camp enjoys one of the most spectacular locations in the world’s best-known wilderness Maasai Mara National Reserve. It sits above a sweeping bend in the Talek River at the confluence of the Maasai Mara’s four game-viewing areas. Mara Intrepids camp is a short drive from the Mara River, where more than a million wildebeest and zebra make their perilous migration crossing every July and August.
The camp has 30 luxury tents, which are spread across a large riverside site to ensure guests the 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.
A luxurious tented camp, the club has 30 modern tents with a capacity of 60 persons. All tents are either twin or double bedded and are arranged in groups of two, three or four units to make individual mini-camps.
All tents are self-contained with own bathrooms with shower flush w.c., wash hand basin, hot and cold water and electricity.
All the public areas are under a makuti and gum pole construction. The dining room has a seating capacity of 70. Breakfasts and lunches are served on champagne terrace overlooking the Talek river. Afternoon tea is available. There is a well stocked main bar. Private lounge/dining tent for each two, three or four tent units. Private bar equipped with refrigerators in each of the 'mini-camps'. Comfortable four wheel-drive vehicles for game drives. Swimming pool. Gift Shop. Residents' reference library. Video room with wildlife video library. Elevated viewing tower for cocktails. Suspension bridge over the Talek River. Safe deposit facility for valuables. Baited tree for leopard. Indoor games are available from reception.
There’s always excitement in the Mara, dawn as the animals wake, midday and the shimmering heat, or dusk, perfect for hunting: a pride of lion stalking zebra, a herd of elephant heading for the swamps, cheetah cubs playing in the shade. Sights you won’t forget.
Our four-wheel-drive vehicles are built to our own specifications. Cut-away roofs give you better views. Our professional drivers will astonish you with what they find: a tell-tale vulture will lead them to a hyena kill, a warning cry from a mother wildebeest reveals a leopard stalking through the grass.
Mara Balloon Safaris:
BORNE ON THE BREEZE ACROSS THE GREAT PLAINS The adventure begins just before dawn. Flames from the balloon burners light the darkness as the crews inflate their craft. The first, pink tongues of sunlight flicker across the skies and the balloon fills then rises. Suspended in a basket beneath the rainbow-colored canopy, you’re off for a game-viewing adventure with an entirely different perspective. The thing that amazes most first-time balloonists is the absolute stillness, the silence as you float above the plains, the forest and the rivers of the Masai Mara. And if you’ve flown elsewhere, you’ve seen nothing like this. The sounds below drift clearly upwards: a lion’s roar, elephants crashing through the bush, baboons perched in the tips of the trees startled and screeching to see something above them.
For an hour or so you drift wherever the air currents take you. If you’re lucky you’ll climb high above the Mara for the view of a lifetime. Then your balloon safari finishes with a flourish. In the time honored tradition of balloon flights the world over you toast your return to earth with a champagne breakfast. The difference this breakfast happens in the bush, wherever you land, and it’s cooked before your eyes on the burners that minutes before kept you suspended in the air.
Mara Balloon Safaris pioneered game-viewing by hot-air balloon in Africa. Today we operate from Governors’ Camps . We have some of the world’s most experienced pilots flying some of the world’s largest balloons. And our distinctive colors are known the world-over!
