Trip to Kenya - Nov 26-Dec 9

Jump to last reply

Hi all, I'm planning a trip to Kenya at the end of this year with my husband and my parents. I'm trying to narrow down locations and camps and would really appreciate your help. our budget is $4,000/p, excluding international flights.


Nov 26 Nairobi
Nov 27-28 Amboseli (Ol Tukai)
Nov 29 Naruku(Sarova)
Nov 30-Dec 2 Samburu (Intrepids or elephant bedroom)
Dec 3-6 Mara
Dec 7-8 Nairobi (Giraffe Manor)

We'll be getting a 4X4 and a driver for Nairobi-Amboseli-Naruku-Samburu, and fly between Samburu-Mara-Nairobi.

My questions are:
1. Is Naruku worth a visit in Nov? I've read pretty mixed reports about the park. Is is the only place to see rhinos?
2. Is Nov-Dec a good time to visit Samburu? will the rain be a problem in that area?
3. Where shall we stay in Mara? Love to see as many lions/leopards/cheetahs as possible!
