First time Safari please help

We are looking at going to Kenya in September or October. Would love to see the migration, elephants, hippos, big 5 etc. We have looked at different safaris with Kuoni, Hayes & Jarvis, Somak but cannot decide which places to visit. Can anyone help? We are looking at 14 to 16 days in total, with four or five days at the beach, either Zanzibar or Mombassa, yet another dilemma! We are looking at a budget of about £5000,
Would appreciate any help
Thanks
Karen

does your budget is per person or total? if total, how many persons?
Does it exclude international flight costs?

I'd steer clear of Somak because they built a lodge in important rhino habitat in Kenya, despite pleas to reconsider.

Could you post the itineraries for these companies you consulted?

I'll make one suggestion to contact Eastern and Southern Safaris in Nairobi. I've used them twice and all was great.

Once you have an itinerary and costs, you can post here for more assistance.
