Kenya + Info.

Message: In response to a coupel of messages alrady posted. I travel to Kenya frequently. September is a great time to catch the migration in the Mara, and before thee rains set in. Also Abocrombi & Kent are the best for great tours, albeit quite pricey. I have a friend who takes what I personally consider to be one of the best things to do in Kenya. A walking safari in Tsvao West - the largest National park there. Its for 3 nights minimum, well appointed tented camp and you'l want for nothing along teh way. Patrick will pick you up from Nairoboi or you can fly into a small airstrip near by camp. Its quite different form say, going to the Masai Mara experience, not at all difficult and like nothing you'll ever experience. He can be booked directly by fax or phone. The newly renovated Norfolk Hotel in Nairobi would be a good choice or slightly cheaper is the Mayfair Hotel although its not right in town. Don't forget a coupel of days in the sun on the coast. The Serena Hotel is the choice on the coast - but quite expensive and I can also recommend Whitesands. Zanzibar or Lamu isalnds are just one hours flight either way from Mombasa - one or the other is worth a visit. Zanazibar is a much more 'tourist friendly' than Lamu which still enjoys its back packers 'haven reputation'. It does however have a great hotel called Peponis for the more credit card minded...and a 7 km beach attached...sheer paradise. Kenya is experiencing low tourist numbers and there are great deals around - for all sorts of budgets. Lots more info for anyone interested - you'll need to contact me directly on [email protected]
