We have been planning 3 nights in Lamu for 6 of us including 2 granddaughters ages 6 & 9. The incident at Kiwayu did not deter us, but this incident at Manda has tipped us over the edge. I personally don't think that we would be in any real danger in Lamu, but if any one of us is really worried, my daughter is, and therefor could never relax, would always be looking over her shoulder or scanning the sea, then we need to find someplace else to go. Of course the whole trip is already paid for, but that is another story.
We are doing a few days in Nairobi, then three nights at Kichwa Tembo in the Mara and now need to add another game park to replace the three nights that had been scheduled for Lamu. We are flying to the Mara and were going to fly to Lamu, so we can plan to fly to the new game park
Which game park would you recommend where we could stay in a very good camp or lodge and see lots of animals? Thinking about Meru, but not sure about abundance of animals and difficulty of getting there.
