7 days from £1975*

More photos in the Gallery

Overview

Travelling just before the Mara’s high season sets in this is a perfect tour either the first time visitor or the more seasoned safari connoisseur and is designed for any level of photographic knowledge. Both photographers and non-photographers are welcome on this tour, which will be characterised by maximizing time in the field to take advantage of the Maasai Mara’s excellent game viewing and photographic opportunities. Therefore potentially staying out in the field for long periods.

The luxury-tented accommodation at 'Mara Intrepids Camp' provides an excellent standard of cuisine and large beautifully furnished tents with a veranda and set along the banks of the Talek River. The facilities in each fully serviced tent include power charging points, well presented en suite bathrooms with hot water showers and flushing toilets. This is a lovely mid sized and secure tented camp enjoying a premium position in the reserve where plentiful game is right on the doorstep. We use good-sized game viewing vehicles with open sides and roof hatches, great for photography.
