Flight Masai Mara to Nairobi

Quick question before we go on safari this weekend: on our last day we are driving back (with a driver) to Nairobi from Masai Mara because at the time we considered flying too expensive. I'm a little worried about the long drive as I have just developed a dodgy neck and shoulder though hope it will soon clear up.

I rang our agent yesterday to enquire about flying instead and she said it was a bit late notice now to book but mentioned we may be able to arrange locally when we get to Masai Mara. Has anyone done this? Also would that mean we would need to restrict our luggage from 23kg back down to 15kg? Think all the camera equipment may make that tricky...

Thank you for any advice.

Your agent sounds unprofessional, this is low season and some seats could be available on the flights from Masai mara. They should have checked availability first before telling you it is too late, after all you are paying for it yourself, there are morning and afternoon daily schedule flights to and from Masai mara, on Airkenya aviation, safarilink,fly 540 and lately Mombasa air safari.

I am sure they should be able to find you an available option on any of companies serving the route.

Good luck

Also ex. Mara, the pilots do not weigh the luggage, so you should be okay.

As alan says, there are plenty of options and flights available.

Thanks very much everyone, good that there is availability: will play it by ear and have a word when we arrive.
