I'm planning on being in Kenya November 28-December 3, 2011. Part of my time (3-4 nights) will be spent at Masai Mara, but I'd like to spend two nights at another park. I liked Lewa Downs because it has both rhinos, and the northern species like Grevy's zebras. However, I was reading that Lewa Downs closes in November. Is that true? If so, should I try to go the last few days of my trip, or is that area not good at all during this time of year?
If so, does anyone have opinions on Samburu vs Lake Nakuru? Samburu has the Northern species, but Lake Nakuru has rhinos.
