Two weeks mid July : arrive Nairobi, depart Kampala...and in between

Jump to last reply

Greetings, all.

In initial trip planning/advice-seeking mode for two week trip in mid-July 2012.

Coming from San Francisco.Thinking to arrive into Nairobi, spend about 6 days on "standard" tour from Arusha (Ngorongoro, Serengeti, Masai Mara) then via road from Masai Mara to Uganda, for friend's "traditional" wedding in her home town of Busia (on the Kenya/Uganda border)

Her "formal" wedding is a week later in Kampala, so we have a week in Uganda before departing.

I'll fine-tune the specifics, with your help, later. For now, do you think the arrival and departure points, and time allotted (only two weeks, unfortunately) make sense? Would you plan those two weeks differently, knowing that there are specific dates i need to be in Uganda?

I have been to E Africa before, 40 yrs ago(!) ---have seen the "big name" game parks. But my travel companion has never been.

Any thoughts/advice/feedback most welcome! Asante!!
