Kenya safari tour/cost

Jump to last reply

I am planning a safari to Kenya in Sept/Oct 2015 with a friend. We want to have nice accomodations - does not need to be super luxury.We can go from 10 to 14 days, including air travel. I have been consulting with my longtime TA and she recommended Kenya as best bang for the buck.

So far, I am looking at these 3 camps in 3 areas: Amboseli: Tortilli's, Samburu :Larsens and Masai Mara: Exploreans Mara Rianta, 2 nights - in each camp. These are all tented camps, custom tour vs. a tour group experience. The cost is over $7500, each, including a night in Nairobi and visits to the elephant orphanage and giraffe preserve. It includes flights to camps, airport pick up, etc. Also, day use room in Nairobi on the day we fly back.

This is less time than I had hoped for on safari, for the cost.

- What do you think of this plan? Is it enough time?
- I am thinking of adding 1 night each to two of the areas, but which ones?
- Mara Rianta sounds very fancy - maybe go somewhere a notch less expensive?
- Should we tack on a few days on the coast? I live near the ocean & go to Hawaii a lot so a trip to the ocean is not top of my list, but is there something unique about the Kenyan coastal resorts? thanks!
