This Mara lodge in Kenya allows visitors to explore the region while on game drives which leave camp three times a day. There is the early morning game drive which leaves at 6 am. This is a great drive to spot animals before the day heats up. The second game drive leaves mid morning after breakfast. The last game drive leaves in the late afternoon, returning at sunset.
Guests can also opt to go on a full day tour of the Masai Mara during a Kenya safari holiday. A packed breakfast and lunch will be provided. This means that time is best spent enjoying exciting wildlife encounters. The game drives are led by knowledgeable local guides and are conducted in specially modified 4x4 vehicles which have roof racks that open to maximise photographic opportunities. The Mara Intrepids Camp is ideally positioned for guests to make the most of the Great Migration of the Wildebeest and Zebra in October and November.
