locally hosted vs escorted


We are planning a trip to Kenya and Tanzania and we looking into some tour options. Brenden tours offers some escorted tours as well as some locally hosted tours.
Does anyone have any experience with Brenden tours in Africa and also with any locally hosted tours in Africa.

I took a look at the escorted and locally hosted Kenya itineraries on the Brendan website and really couldn't tell much difference between the two. Except for a tour of Nairobi the first day and a dinner at the Carnivore, both itineraries look the same to me, only the cost difference is $530pp or more for the escorted one.

I posted websites of 2 other companies that offer group tours to Kenya/Tanzania on your other thread. Is your preference for a group tour? Keep in mind that often it costs about the same to arrange a private tour for 2 people visiting the same parks and staying at the same lodges/camps as the group tours. I just thought I'd mention that option in case you weren't aware of that possibility.
