Staying at Tiwi, looking for info on Safaris

We are staying at the Amani Tiwi Beach in August, We are looking into booking a 2 night safari and would prefer to have a private hire staying at Salt lick. A few questions

Is it better/easier to book before or wait till we arrive at the resort.

Does anybody know which safari companies are advertised at the Amani. Or any recommendations?

What’s the typical price you would be looking to pay (Family of 4) for a 2 night safari?

Another question but not related to Safari, Does the ‘barracuda dive school’ also deal in deep sea fishing. Again how much are you looking at for a mornings fishing?

Regards

Elmstone

Unless you want a specific lodge or camp, you can leave booking until you get to ATBR. My advice would be to contact a couple of companies for suggestions and quotes, we have used both WT safaries and JT safaries and have been very happy with both companies. This year We went with WT safaries, 2 nights and 3 days staying at Saltlick and Sentrim in Amboseli and paid £650 for a mini bus with just the 2 of us, if we had 4 in the mini bus we would have had to pay £600 each. Amboseli is an 8 hour drive (though so worth the travelling) so a trip to Tsavo would be less and a trip to the Maasi Mara would be more. Cotts Tours and Travel have an office at the hotel and you can email them at their Nairobi office and ask them to give you a quote for a safari. Merci who is the Thomson Rep, is fantastic and will help you book any trip out but if you book a Thomson safari expect to pay more than booking locally and to have a full mini bus.

Pedro and Tracey at the Barracuda Dive school have lived in Kenya for many years now and can help you book trips of all kinds, including fishing trips and safaris, the offer really good snorkelling trips for families, it is well worth emailing them with you requests for safari prices and fishing trips.

Amani Tiwi Beach Resort is a wonderful hotel and you can look forward to a wonderful holiday during which you will be made to feel really welcome and special. Have a lovely time.
