Mara Intrepids Camp

Masai Mara

Days 1 - 3: Masai Mara

Mara Intrepids Camp Location Map

Mara Intrepids is situated in one of the most spectacular locations in the world's best-known safari wilderness. The camp overlooks the Talek River and is just a short drive from the Mara River, where over a million wildebeest and zebra make their perilous migration crossing every year.

Outside of the migration period, the camp still offers some of the finest game viewing, with large local populations of plains game including, elephant, rhino, buffalo and all the big cats. Game viewing drives in open-sided safari jeeps are available daily, and as this part of the reserve receives fewer visitors than the eastern part it is possible to drive long periods without seeing another vehicle. Guests can also take advantage of other activities (at an additional cost) offered by the camp, including hot air balloon safaris, bush dining, nature walks and cultural visits to the local Maasai villages.

The camp 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 main bar is a fully equipped conference room where the Maasai naturalists deliver evening slide shows on the local culture and wildlife.

Mara Intrepids has 30 luxurious tents that are widely spread across a large riverside site to ensure guests have privacy and peace. Each tent is furnished in the classic style of the grand African safaris, with large 4 poster beds and reproduction furniture and modern en-suite bathrooms. Each tent sits on a shady raised platform with sweeping views over the riverbanks where a large variety of animals come to drink.

There is also one family tent which can comfortably accommodation 2 adults and 2 children under 12 years.

The camp is run on strict eco-principles, with hot water generated by burning used coffee husks and biodegradable waste mulched for compost.

Nairobi Serena Hotel

Nairobi

Day 4: Nairobi

Nairobi Serena Hotel Location Map

Nairobi is the capital of Kenya, and is the country's largest city, and is the arrival point for many visitors into the country. The main airport is Jomo Kenyatta International, located 15 km out of the centre of town, but many itineraries will also include flights into and out of Wilson Airport, located 11 km outside of the city centre, as this is the domestic hub for both scheduled and chartered domestic air traffic.

The capital city is not wholly separated from the great African wilderness that most people come to Kenya to enjoy. Just outside the city is the Nairobi National Park, 113 square km of plains, cliffs and forest. The Park is home to large herds of zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, giraffe, rhino, cheetah and a large number of lions - all living wild within 20 minutes of the busy city.

Other wildlife attractions of the city include the Elephant Orphanage, where visitors have the unique opportunity to experience the feeding of baby orphaned elephants and rhinos up close, or the Giraffe Centre where visitors can feed the resident giraffes.

You can also visit the Karen Blixen Museum, Karen Blixen's former home and which was donated by the Danish government to Kenya. Karen Blixen, also known by her pseudonym Isak Dinesen, is famous for her memoir, Out of Africa. The trained and knowledgeable guides at the museum are on hand to answer any questions on the history of the museum and on Karen Blixen's life.

Set amongst the lush-green abundance of extensive tropical gardens, looking out over the gentle green avenues of Central Park and commanding a panoramic view of the glittering towers of downtown Nairobi, the Serena Hotel enjoys one of the finest locations in the city.

The comfortable rooms are traditional in style with air conditioning and city or garden views. A range of suites are also available.
