Safari area

Hi, Im planning a trip to Africa in late Nov and undecided whether to do the Lake Nakuru / Masai Mara area or the other area of Amboseli / Tsavo. Either trip will be to/from Nairobi and I have 5 days/4 nights. Any advice on pros/cons for either area would be appreciated. Cheers

I agree. The Mara is not to be missed.

Amboseli is good too but Tsavo is very bushy and you are less likely to see the cats .

OK Masai Mara it is, thanks. Any recommendations for a safari tour to use, I can find plenty that offer private guides however would prefer to join a small group tour??

I strongly recommend the private safari option. We were two in a van last month, after that it is hard to picture myself in a van with 6 or 7 people. Worth the additional $s.

Lovely nature and game viewing is far more impactful that way, without chatter and distractions, particularly the wide open spaces of the Mara. A lake should be quite interesting for a day, before the Mara.

I have photos in my JBRs, in case you are interested. :)

Hi ,

Would Suggest Lake Naivasha where you will visit hell's gate ( where you can ride in bike or walk to the gorges) lather than lake nakuru which it have been in absence of pink flamingos which are a main interest in the park as most of the you will see are still in other parks and reserves and spice your safari in Masai Mara,where the climax of wildlife lies( not to miss).

Enjoy your safari.
