The flights from the Mara to Nairobi takes approx 45 min depending on how many stops are made at various airstrips. From Nairobi to Amboseli is 4 to 4.5 hours by road. Unfortunately, the flights to Amboseli depart Nairobi early in the morning so you wouldn't be able to connect if coming from the Mara the same day. Yes, Amboseli is a fairly small park.

The routing provided is quite usual for those coming from the Mara heading to Amboseli. The only other option is chartering a private flight, which would be cost prohibitive.

Sue, you're not back home where you have good roads, and hourly flight schedules. This is Africa you are visiting.

The Serengeti might be large, but based on the accommodations available you still won't be able to see it all. Where you will be situated is in the Central area where you will find resident game, but nowhere what you will find in the Mara in August.

Though Amboseli is a small park, you loose the day of mostly travel (from the Mara), so 2-days fits well. Then you transfer by road and will be at Tarangire in time for lunch.

I believe that if you wait much longer to make a decision, considering that you came late to planning, you may find that even what is being held might disappear.
