Shopping for the best price for a 1 night to Masai Mara

We are a family of 2 Adults and 3 children ages 16,14 and 5 looking for a reasonable price. I am originally from Kenya but am taking my children for the first time to visit. I do not want to end up dissapointed by looking for the cheapest price but something reasonable. Any advice will be appreciated?

When do you plan to visit? Month?

Prices are seasonal and between July-Sep (even Oct) is peak season at highest prices.

For 1/nt, know that the drive from NBO to Mara is easily 5-6/hrs each way. Cost of driver/vehicle for 2/days would run about $200+/day, plus your daily park fees (avg $80/pp adult; about $45/pp children to 12/yrs), then your accommodations and few have rooms for 5/people... you'll probably need a triple for you and wife + 5/yr old; and a twin for the older children.

Checkin is in time for lunch (11am earliest) and checkout is after breakfast (10am).

Without an idea of your expected budget and when traveling difficult to advise 'where.'

I want to do the Safari on 14 August. I understand I have to book it through a tour company and am on a tight budget. Thanks

You'd do best working with an outfitter and as August the busiest month... take wherever there is space that works with your budget.

Good value for money lodge - Mara Sopa. good value b'cz of the service (food/accommodation), location in the park, family-oriented.
