With the following itinerary (flying between camps), we are down to our last choice: 3 nights Masai Mara and 3 nights on Lamu, or 4 mights Masai Mara and 2 nights Lamu?

29 Aug Amboseli Tortillis
30 Aug Tortillis
31 Aug Samburu Intrepids
1 Sept Samburu Intrepids
2 Sept Mara Porini
3 Sept Mara Porini
4 Sept Porini Lion
5 Sept ?
6 Sept Lamu (arriving late afternoon)
7 Sept Lamu
8 Sept Lamu (leaving late afternoon)

This board has been helpful and we'll post a report in September, thanks.

Thanks! This is our honeymoon, probably the only time we'll make it there, and every decision seems so huge.

Sorry to make the decision more difficult, but I would say Lamu. From the looks of your trip, you will be on Safari for at least 7 nights, maybe 8. If you want to go on each mornings game drive, it can be a tiring day, especially if you are on you Honeymoon! Relax, enjoy the beach and food of Lamu and unpack your bags. Where are you staying on Lamu? From our experience of many safaris, my wife was very happy to get to Lamu and relax and sleep in. We loved every moment of safari that we have been on, but it is also very, very nice to have a place like Lamu to change gears and take in the sun.

Congrats!

Lamu. After 7 days of game drives we were ready for a break. "Another lion, oh nice, yawn, what do you think they are serving for dinner?"

Where are you staying on Lamu? We stayed at Kizingo last August and loved it.
