Planning first safari to northern Kenya

Jump to last reply

We are a family of five ( kids ages 17, 14 and 11 ) planning our first safari to Kenya. We plan to visit the second week in March 2011 over our Spring Break.

I have visited the website of the Safari and Conservation Company and would greatly appreciate any feedback from fellow travelers that have used this company to help arrange their safaris.

At present, we are considering two nights at Lemarti's Camp, two nights at either Borana Lodge or Sirikoi and two nights at Manda Bay - trying to do a sampling of cultural immersion, typically safari sightseeing and end with water sports. But we are wondering if we would be "missing out" if we did not visit Masai Mara.

Any suggestions, recommendations or cautionary tales would be greatly appreciated!!
