Place: Porini Lion Camp, in the Olare Orok/Motorogi Conservancy, at end of June.
Option: Private use of vehicle for me and teenaged grandson. Additional $375/day.
Alternative: game drives with up to 4 or 5 others, included in already quoted trip price.
Concerns: Here's an example--Someone in the vehicle wants to sit in one spot for an hour or more, in search of the perfect photo. Others (including me and grandson ) are ready to move on.Or one morning, we'd rather leave later than pre-breakfast for the morning game drive. We cold just skip the morning drive that day ...or , if we had the private vehicle, could leave when we want (I think).
Last trip to Kenya in 2012, I was alone the entire trip.This time will be different, so I'm a bit anxious. But $375 additional per day is quite a lot for me, atop the already steep nightly price (worth it yes, but still quite a strain on the budget).
Has anyone been in this sort of situation? How was it handled?Do you wish you'd have done the private vs the group vehicle? The Porini camp is small, and both me and grandson look forward to the social part of it, but in terms of the actual safari, people may have different interests/focus. Thoughts?
Thanks in advance for your time and feedback.
