Lets Go Travel or Bunsons Travel both in Nairobi (both have websites) are a good start... one of my favourite places to go in the Mara is Kicheche ... a very low key and natural tented camp (and very comfy!) and away from the big Mara mini bus crowds which I have to say is a great thing


I've heard that Air Kenya have gone bust so don't know who is flying to the Mara now ... I'm sure some operator has replaced them.

Thank you - I will pass this info on, my friend hasn't booked anything yet...so she may like the not so touristy option you mentioned.

When did Air Kenya go bust? I flew them in late November. We also stayed at Kicheche and enjoyed the camp but felt that the game viewing was better inside the reserve (though that could be a factor of time of year). In late November, we didn't find crowding to be a problem anywhere in the Mara.
