3 night Masai Mara Safari average costs???

We are a retired couple who will be staying in a Diani hotel for 3 weeks later this month. We would like to go on a short safari to Masai Mara (funds permitting) Our last visit to Kenya was 14 years ago and during that visit we did a short safari to Tsavo East and stayed at the Voi lodge. We would be grateful for some idea about how much a short Masai Safari would cost

For 3 nights in the Mara I would budget between £700-£1000 per person which would include 3 game drives a day all meals, return flights from the coast and park fees,

I would agree with Bruce in recommending 3 nights, but I think the cost might end up a bit more than that. Return flights from the coast will cost around £300 each, daily reserve or conservancy fees £50-60 per person and lower-end camps or lodges in January will charge from around £150 per person per day, including two game drives. Smarter or smaller places, charging £250-300 pppd, would mean you'd have a lot more choice and better guiding and at the higher end, and above (up to £500 pppd-plus) they would include all drinks as well.

Thank you all for your advice. Masai mar Not within my budget this time round but I've booked 2 nights safari for Tsavo East and west I did receive a private message however from someone claiming to be a tour operator offering 3 day Masai trip for a ridiculously low price and on the basis of if it seems too good to be true it usually is I didn't bother replying.
