Masai Safari from Bamburi

We have just booked a 2 week stay at Neptune Lodge, Bamburi beach, 9th November onwards, and would like to do a 3 night Masai Mara safari.

With regards to the safari, any help/advice of where to book when we arrive and prices we may expect to pay would be much appreciated.

Is it worth going to Masai Mara or would Tsavo be just as good?

Many thanks

The Masai Mara is about a 10/12 hours approx drive from Bamburi Beach and to take a safari there you will need to fly. I am not aware of any company that goes overland from Bamburi to the Masai. Do some homework on the internet, there are plenty of companies which organise safaris to the Masai, better still speak to the travel company rep at your hotel, he will be in a better, more knowledgeable position to offer advice.

You could consider a safari to Tsavo East, and West, if you wished to do both, they are considerably nearer. Tsavo East has every one of the big five but rhino, there are however rhino in Tsavo West. We saw all we could wish to see; lions, cheetar, giraffe, elephants, hippos in the watering hole, which our lodge overlooked and many impala, gizelles, water buck, hartybeast, buffalow, zebra, warthogs and a whole range of birds from crested eagles to bustards to 'flying bananas'. This was all in two days, with one overnight stay at the lodge.

In the end it all depends on what you are wanting to spend, as obviously to fly to the Masai will cost much more than a short drive to Tsavo. Whatever you decide ENJOY.
