You could do both Tsavo East & West and Maasai mara all in 5 days. Road plus flight to Maasai mara from Tsavo West.

For me personally i would go for Tsavo East with its red elephants and Tsavo West with the great landscapes.......

Masai Mara because of the out of Africa Landscapes and the migration (July to September only)

Tsavo for elephants.

Masai for everything else.

Also get much closer to the animals at Masai.

For animals, Mara beats it all. For landscape and volcanic scene and rocks, i'd do Tsavo.
