African Safaris and Travel - Our safaris reflect every travelers style, time frame and budget!

 

  There have been and are other Family Safaris, but no other appears to offer such a wonderful opportunity for a whole family - from grandparents to children to be able to interact with the culture, children and wildlife of Africa, and, more importantly, to interact with each other in a superbly unique environment, whilst enjoying the traditional fun and adventure of a Safari! - Days of Operation: Daily on request - Minimum Passengers to operate: 2 Persons

All the hotels and lodges featured are very children friendly , and the arrangements for most days allow for the children to be taken care of by trained animators and naturalists, whilst the adults can participate, or do other things, as they wish. Air travel is used extensively to allow for more time for fun and educational activities, and less time becoming agitated, tired and restless on bumpy and dusty roads.

Sitting above a sweeping bend in the Talek River at the confluence of the Maasai Mara’s four game-viewing areas, Mara Intrepids enjoys one of the most spectacular locations in the Maasai Mara ecosystem. The 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. For the remainder of the year, the camp offers some of the world’s finest game viewing, with large local populations of elephants, rhinos, buffalos, and all the Big Cats. 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 is a fully equipped conference room, where our Maasai naturalists deliver evening slide shows on the local culture and wildlife - and where corporate groups can indulge in a spot of ‘bush business’.
