At a loose end!

hi all. i want to go on safari in december with my daughter. im happy to pay for the flight from nairobi to the masai as its too far for her to be in a car from nairobi, but from there the splurge ends!

can anyone recommend an operator that can organise a safari for us from that point onwards?

There are hundreds of outfitters in Kenya that can assist.

See a site as www.katokenya.org - review the list, some names that are often found recommended on this forum and write to them

or select 5-6 on the list, sending each individual emails advising

- when visiting, for how many days in the Mara, type of accomm (lodge/tent camp), your estimated budget

Then await their replies and compare. If further questions about the offerings, return here for assistance.

Note: In December the prices till 20th Dec are at mid-season rates; thereafter they are at peak-season for the Christmas/New Years holidays.

Good luck.

Most reputable lodges in the park can organise transfer from airstrip to lodge, so you don't have to book thro' TO. Then again, you have to confirm if the lodge of your choice has a fleet of safari vans or 4Wds (for game drives).
