We traveled last month and spent about 6days in Maasai Mara. Although we booked in advance, paying in Kenya meant that we had to change accommodations between Mara Safari Club and Mara Intrapids because everything had been booked up due to the peak tourism season.

Its always cheaper to book on arrival and especially with a local tour operator for excursions. for overnight stay, i would recommend booking well in advance especially if you are vising during the High tourism season (July- October) or during the festive season (Christmas and New year)

Everybody want to have a discount on safari package but i also have realized the last minute booking attracts a lot of complains and unmet expectation since most of the last minute operator on the destination also try to make some shortcuts to keep the cost down.
