Travelling to Kenya - All ideas welcomed!

Hi everyone,

My friend and I are travelling to Kenya this coming weekend. We are an open canvas and have literally just booked our flights. We have booked into stay with a backpackers place for couple of nights but we also want to go to Masai Mara for safari. However, we are open to suggestions and what to do it Nairobi as we will spend a day there. I heard the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is a must...After that - anyone with ideas to suit our safari and wildlife needs would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

You can tour Nairobi city then head to elephant orphanage(the feeding time 11am- 12)lunch at carnivore,after lunch you can head to giraffe center/national archives/national museum

In masai mara apart from game drive you can do early balloon ride/ masai village.

You can do, the city tour , head to David Sheldrick orphanage, as mentioned its open between 11-12 noon , then Giraffee Centre Karen Blixen , you can head back to Nairobi for Nairobi national park safari walk or if time permits you can take a game drive instead , maybe in the evening to see more wild game including four of the Big five , then take dinner at Carnivore restaurant . You can also tour Maasai mara , Lake Nakuru or Naivasha , if you have time to do them all. Lake Naivasha is good for walking safari , Lake Nakuru or Naivasha can be done on day trips , Maasai mara is a minimum of 3 days on road safari.

Good luck.
