My partner and I are hoping to go on honeymoon in August 2013 and we know we want to go on a safari to Kenya ever since we got engaged over a year ago.
I have read a lot of information on here and just need a little advice as I feel a overwhelmed by all the possibilities!
Ok so we know we want to spend at least 8-10 days on safari with a small possibility of a few days relaxing somewhere but we are still unsure of this as we aren't beach or poolside people.
We also know we want to spend the most amount of time in Masai Mara but would like to visit Lake Nakuru and Amboseli if possible so Nairobi seems to be the place to fly into.
We want to do the whole holiday in style so I am guessing lodges instead of camping is what we want.
So please can people recommend the best way of doing this? I am not sure whether land or by air would be best, I realise air is a lot more expensive but is it unbearable by land?
I am also not sure which company to book with. Initially I thought of going to a company such as Trailfinders or Explore! just because it's the first time either of us have been to Africa or on safari and didn't want to get it all wrong or it to be stressful trying to negotiate by email or for it to be a disaster!
But then I know these companies don't necessarily offer the best experience especially being crammed in a vehicle with lots of other people.
Any advice on where to start would be great, I already felt like I have left it too late to be booking this!
