Planning 1st safari with Gamewatchers- would like your thoughts

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone,

I am planning a safari for my family (2 adults and 2 kids..10 & 8) to Kenya in December. I heard really good reviews for Gamewatchers through this website and am working with them. Based on what I'd like to do they gave me the following itiniery. Would really appreciate your feedback. As a family we don't like to rush things to much and nor do we want to move too much from one place to another. Schedule wise this sounds perfect for us but I'm really worried about the price. I've been quoted $6350 per adult and $3800 per child without airfare which is 20 grand. We are using miles for our tickets but taxes thro Lhr are setting us back almost$2000. Is this really worth it...?

Day 1: reach Nairobi late in the night and GW rep picks us up and takes us to Machushle house.

Day 2: Nairobi

Day:3 drive to Amboseli NP and stay in Porini camp for 2 nights

Day 5: fly to Porini rhino camp and stay 2 nights

Day 7: fly to Porini lion camp and stay 4 nights

Day.11 drive to intrepids Mara and stay for 2 nights. Late check out and fly directly to Nairobi for flight back to Los Angeles.

Are we spending way too much time in the Mara, will be bored out of our minds. Please....I have till Friday to decide, PLEASE HELP!!!!





Day5: fly to Porini Rhino camp
