12 Days in Kenya $6000 budget

Hi all,

We're planning a trip to Kenya for 16 days of which 12 we thought we'll use a guided tour sort of thing.

Was wondering if you fine people might be able to tell us where the best lodging would be scenery and wild life wise.

We're 2 guys with a total budget of $8000 for 16 days,

Thank you

Hi, Damika,

This is a sort of Budget safari , based on a mixture of tented camps and Budget lodge , your travel agent will be a good position to tell you more on the kind of accommodations to be offered , its not that Budget either, depending on when exactly to begin your trip, its a matter of a peak season which is ongoing , toward the end of December can be crazy based on the fact that its a festive season which attracts some Christmas supplements, beginning 24, 25, 26, 31 and 1st of Jan, if you intend to travel within this limits then it means some more dollars , before this then you can be sure of not basically camping, but standard and budget lodges can work .

Good luck.

Once I subtracted the 30% agent markup, that's almost to the penny what I spent for my safari. If you want the itinerary which was very nice mobile tents in parks and pretty high end, just message me as I saw all the animals and had a great time. Judith

Why all the *private message* offers? We ( at least I) ALL like to share in recommendations and information.

Isnt:t that the point of a FORUM?

Hi Calinurse,

Your budget is enough to cater for a mid-range safari in Kenya. A typical itinerary would be something like this:

Nairobi-Naivasha-Nakuru-Masai Mara-Masai Mara-Masai Mara- Masai Mara - Nairobi - Amboseli - Tsavo - Mombasa - Mombasa - Mombasa - Malindi - Malindi - Nairobi

The above is taking into consideration that the two of you will be sharing a double/twin room.
