8 days in Kenya

My husband and I are traveling to Kenya on short notice, but we will only have 8 days total in the country. I am taking my camera (I'm an intermediate photog with a serious telephoto lens) and would like opportunities for photography.

I had initially hoped to stay at Giraffe Manor for 1 night and then travel onwards to Masai Mara or anyplace else to see wildlife withiny time constraints.

Does anybody have a suggested itinerary or could anyone please point me in the best direction for me to do further research? Thank you! So excited!!

Hi,

I also heard about that, so should I go to Lake Bogoria rather than Lake Nakuru? I will arrive at Nairobi on 27 July noon and originally plan to go directly from the airport to Nakuru. How about Lake Naivasha? Anything special in Naivasha? I guess it is quite close to Nakuru. Actually, the most important part of my trip is the annual migration.

Thanks.

I totally agree with Yankari the Flamingos are in Lake Bogoria and Lake Nakuru has problems with floods.Most roads are impassable and getting closer to the Lake is not possible.

Hi,

Thanks for your replies. Is Bogoria far away from Nairobi and Masai Mara?

Check Google maps. Bogoria is a couple of hours drive north of Nakuru, about 4-5 hours drive from Nairobi. Bogoria to Maasai Mara is a 5-7 hour drive, depending on where your final destination is in the Maasai Mara (it's a big area!).

8 days are good for a safari in Kenya. My opinion is 2 days Amboseli- 1 day lake Naivasha( Hell's Gate)-4 days Masai mara plus 1 day nairobi excursion.
