Mara Question

Jump to last reply

Researching a bit on Kenya as we plan to visit early next year. We are not first time safari goers and generally prefer private concessions. Trying to figure out how much time we should spend in the Mara vs other areas of Kenya.

Are vehicles allowed to drive off road while in the Mara? Are there private concessions within the Mara? How many vehicles will be at each sighting? Is it worthwhile staying at a private concession outside the Mara? or does that just mean more driving to get into the park?

After leaving the Mara we are considering a few nights at either Lewa Wilderness or Ol Donyo. Any thoughts on these properties?

Thanks!
