Myself & wife are planning an advanture holiday to Kenya, and our travel agent has suggested the following plan:
Day 1 - Nairobi (arrive by flight, relax, rest overnight)
Day 2 - Drive to Masai Mara (game drive in MM Game Reserve)
Day 3 - Game drives in morning & evening @ Masai Mara
Day 4 - Drive to Lake Nakuru after breakfast (view flamingoes & Rhinos)
Day 5 - Drive to Aberdare region (arrive, rest all day, followed by an night game viewing experience)
Day 6 - Drive to Mount Kenya (relax + visit animal orphanage)
Day 7 - Relax (leisure activities like swimming, golf, tennis, etc)
Day 8 - Drive from Mouth Kenya to Nairobi & board flight
In this entire trip, can you tell me how much travel time are we looking at? By road, and if possible by flight? Why would you recommend air or land travel?
Am I spending too little (or too much) time at any particular destination?
Is there much to do in Nairobi? Shall I extend my time there?
If you have stayed in any of the above places, any recommended hotels/camps?
