My partner and i will hopefully be going back to Kenya in June. My last trip to Kenya was absolutely fantastic hence, why im gonig back. Where you staying?
We are travelling on the 28th of May from Manchester to Heathrow, arriving in Niarobi on the 29th May and then flying onto Mombasa. We are going on the 6 night Dik Dik Safari arranged through Hayes and Jarvis and then we are staying at the Voyager Beach Hotel in Mombasa. We leave for home on 14th June.
Wow - 16 nights including 6 safari that will be awesome. The wait at Niarobi airport is a chore but once your in mombassa and on safari its a different world.
I just cant wait to get back
Don't know if I am being nieve but the times between the flight into Niarobi and out again to Mombasa is only and hour and a quarter so should not be too bad.
Have you booked to go yet?
Our wait was a bit longer i think and it didnt half drag. Havent booked yet, currently checking out options!
Where is the Dik Dik safari?
The Dik Dik safari takes in Tsavo east and west and Amboseli and is booked through Hayes and Jarvis who use Rhino Safari's. I have been to both Tsavo parks before and Shimba Hills.
I cant wait to go. Should not wish my life away but it cant come soon enough, I love Kenya, especially the safari.
Excellent - i too have been to both Tsavo parks including mzima springs - absolutely incredible!
i stayed at Voi, Kilanguni and Ngulia lodges. They were great
Do you do any other excursions you could recommend?
The Dhow sounds interesting...my friend and i went big game fishing which was good and also visited a wood carving shop/factory.
Im hoping to visit the mara this time around. Mzima springs was excellent especially when we almost walked past a crocodile which was basking out of the water
I wanted to go the the Mara but at the time of booking there were no places left and I was so desperate to go on holiday I just booked it. At least that leaves somewhere else for me to visit another time!!!!
The Dhow was gr8 because we went out and saw 10's of dolphins and went back to where we sailed and had an excellent meal where there were so many different types of meats to try including croc. Not too good if there is a veggie amoungst you though becuase all they did was bring more potatoes out.
