first time safari with teens-Sosian and Kicheche camps

Jump to last reply

Hi all. Am very close to finalizing our first safari for June/July 2017. Kids wlil be 13 (almost 14) and 15 1/2 at the time.

Am torn bt 2 agendas but my biggest question is is this too long with teens? I have tried to vary it with different lodging activities. We will have cultural experiences, horseback riding, camel riding, river tubing, waterfall jumping, night drives, walks etc. But is this too long w teens? would love to hear first hand experience. My kids are good travelers btw. Just not sure if too many game drives can get boring bc of alot of sitting in jeeps...

Sosian plus Kicheche Laikipia, Kicheche Mara & Kicheche Bush (13 nights)

June 25: Nbo and overnight at Eka.
June 26: fly to Sosian (river tubing, camel and horseback riding etc.)
June 26-29: Sosian

Sosian plus Kicheche Laikipia & Kicheche Mara (12 nights without Kicheche Bush and extra night added at Kicheche Mara)

June 25: Nbo and overnight at Eka.
