Super camp with super staff! Enjoyed a very successful safari last week, full of action thanks to an amazing guide called Joseph who would literally find a needle in a haystack!! The tents are very comfortable, have 2 plugs ( sockets) for charging devices, nighty hot water bottles placed in beds, plenty of hot water (need to let tap run...

And if you are lucky you will see plenty of wildlife while sitting on the veranda of your luxury tent! Yes, the rooms are all actually 'tents' but the emphasis here is on 'glamping' rather than 'camping.' 5 sar luxury in...

After 6 years we made our 8th return visit to Mara Intrepids Camp on the Talek River. What a welcome!! Some staff, like old friends, waiting to greet us. Dennis our Driver/Ranger met us off the plane and the safari began. Highest concentration of animals we'd seen in years, probably due to drought further north. Dennis constantly found open spaces...
