The Mara is home to the stars of BBC’s Big Cat Diary and Big Cat Live following Shakira the cheetah, the Marsh lions and Bella the leopard with their families as they try to raise them in a world defined by predators and prey; by the hunters and the hunted.

Built on the banks of the Talek River, which joins the Mara River and eventually drains into waters of the Victoria, Africa’s largest freshwater lake and source of the mysterious Nile, the Mara Intrepids is for the intrepid traveler who wants to be away from the crowds and explore Africa’s wild kingdom.

The Luxury Tents

Every tent is raised on stilts, and opens to the Talek River with that signature view of the endless plains. Recently refurbished to accommodate the modern, discerning safari traveler, the tents are large and spacious with private verandahs to enjoy the river and the plains, giving infinite views of the Mara. It’s luxury in the wild.

In addition there are two family luxury tents, gorgeous homes under canvas. Beautifully decorated in stylistic African ethnic and modern pieces, the two bed-roomed family tents include a spacious lounge and an outside deck looking out at the river and the plains beyond. All have ensuite bathrooms and washrooms.

For quiet moments, you can escape to the high tower in the forest glade and scan the tree canopy of the riverine forest and the plains. It’s a great vantage lookout point for any wildlife that strolls by or stalks the prey.
