I am considering an itinerary with Eastern&Southern safaris. They have included a detail including drive times.
They have listed driving the first day from Nairobi to Amboseli to the Serena Lodge. They listed a 5 hour drive. Two nights there.
Then, we leave amboseli and head thru Nairobi to Mt. Kenya to the Serena Mountain lodge. They listed only 3 hours?
After one night in the mountain lodge, we head to Samburu to the Samburu Game Lodge. They listed 3 hours.
After 2 nights in Samburu, we go to Sweatwater Sanctuary. 3 hour drive. Sweatwater game camp.
After only one night, we head to Lake Nakuru to Sarova Lion hill lodge. 3 hour drive.
After one night, we head to Lake Naivasha to Sopa lodge. 2 hour drive.
After one night, head to Masai Mara to Sarova Mara tent camp. 5 hour drive. Three nights there.
Head back to Nairobi, 6 hour drive.
These times seem like A LOT of time driving, and not much time relaxing or viewing.
Also, how can you drive 5 hours south from Nairobi to amboseli and then only 3 hours back thru Nairobi to Mt Kenya?
Are these times realistic?
What about the serena lodge, I've heard only mediocre things.
