We are starting to plan a trip to Kenya for 2008. It will be our 5th visit to Kenya, but the first with our son age 7. We've previously been all over, our plan so far is to fly into Nairobi and go on safari in Masai Mara before ending up on the coast.
We have a brother-in-law who lives at Watamu so the coast part of the trip is pretty much sorted.
So a number of questions come to mind:
Which airlines do people recommend? We can't fly direct from our local airport (Manchester, UK) so could fly via pretty much anywhere. Main considerations as always are space, seat pitch, service and entertainment (especially for our son) on a long haul flight.
Would people recommend flying to Masai Mara rather than driving?
Does anyone have any recommendations for child-friendly lodges/tented camps in Masai Mara?
Has anyone got any good realistically priced ground agents they might recommend to put together some of the logistics for us or even provide a driver?
How have other people got on with anti-malarials for children?
Thanks for any help and advice.
