I have stayed and reviewed the camp a few times. Yet again I enjoyed my stay this time bringing a larger family group. We especially enjoyed relaxing by the pool in between the game drives, and then meeting up with James, the excellent naturalist. James helped make our stay special, again.

As a family of two adults and two teenagers, we had an amazing two nights at Intrepids. The tents are well appointed and very comfortable. Twin beds and doubles are available and we shared two neighbouring tents. Waking at dawn to see Baboon outside your tent is wonderful (but remember to zip up the tent if you want to avoid...

One of the highlights of my Kenya travel experience. The rooms were clean, the staff were wonderful and the food was delicious. The staff was also very helpful when providing drivers and unique experiences around the park.

Our guide was not only very knowledgeable, but so enthusiastic about his environment. He went out of his way to locate as many species of flora and fauna as he could, and...
