How many parks in Massai mara ?

Hi

I am planning to go for the 2 nights / 3 days safari from Nairobi to Massai mara, i saw big deviation in prices between the tour operators, ranges are from 300 USD to more than 1000 USD , my question is , is it only the matter of car, accommodation , food , ... etc ? or the there are several parks inside where it will make that difference ?

Thanks

Hi Mohamed

Prices vary depending on many factors, some of which are :

Mode of transport ( by Air or road, 4 x 4 Landcruiser or minivan ), standard of accomodation,what is included and excluded.

All the best

Mohamed, the park is the same as well as the animals! but the accommodation are different depending with the size of your pocket. There are some luxury lodges and camps and there are also budget accommodations. The choice remains on your side

Also check whether the prices quoted include the park fees. As the lowest price you mentioned was $300 I would have my doubts, 2 days worth of park fees (48 hours of entry) would be over half of that quote, so not much left for accommodation & transport costs - and the operator's profit, of course.

Sorry, mate, can't help you there. I've now taken the route of organising everything myself, from transport, driver, accommodation, etc. Not for the faint- hearted and maybe not the cheapest way of doing it, I can assure you, but if anything goes wrong I have only myself to blame!
