It is possible to do this with several safari companies but you will spend a long time in a vehicle for very little time in the park. Better to do at leaast a one night trip.

A 24-hour trip would, staying overnight would give you late afternoon and dawn game drives - by far the best times. A day trip would mean driving around in the midday day heat - the worst time, and terrible for photos.

Not worth it for a day. Spend at least one night in the park.

At least an overnight.

Fastest though more expensive, fly at 8am (if not earlier). Met for safari game drives and overnight. Next morning fly 9am to Nairobi.

Driving is easily 4+/hrs each way. Flight is less than 1/hr.

Yankari, do you have to pay for two days entrance to the park for the afternoon and next morning or is it a 24hr ticket? I'm planning a visit in February.

Serena or Ol Tukai Lodges are priced in mid-range.

Tortilis Camp a bit more expensive.
