9/10 Day Beach/Safari Kenya

Hi,

Please could you help me.

I am trying to organise a beach holiday with 2/3 day safari to Kenya in October. Would love to go on the overnight sleeper from Nairobi to Mombassa or vice versa. There are 5 of us altogether including 3 family members at 19, 21 and 23. Do not want to go all inclusive.

Would anyone be able to suggest an itinery and recommend hotels etc as love eating out rather than in the hotels in the evening. Which park would be best to visit please?

Thanks so much for your help,

Julie

hello

he Maasai Mara is Kenya's most celebrated game park, it offers the possibility of seeing "the big five" and many other species of game. This is where the great wildebeest migration is a spectacle to behold for any would be visitor to Kenya mainly in July to October of each year.

Day 1. Nairobi - Mara

Depart from Nairobi in the morning and drive along the floor of the Rift Valley to Maasai Mara arriving at the camp in the afternoon for lunch. Afternoon game drives followed by dinner and overnight stay at Mara Sidai Camp or Enchoro Camp

Day 2. Maasai Mara

Full day spent exploring the park in search of the big 5.Morning and afternoon game drives are offered. Optional hot air balloon safari can be arranged at an extra cost of US$ 450 per person. Dinner and overnight stay at Mara Sidai Camp or Enchoro Camp

The Mara offers wildlife in such variety and abundance that it is difficult to believe: over 450 species of animals have been recorded here. You will easily see lions, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, giraffe, wildebeests, zebras, buffalo, warthogs, hyenas, jackals, wild dogs, buffalo, leopard, many kinds of antelopes and elephant. It is in the Mara that perhaps the most spectacular event of the natural world takes place. This is the annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti (Tanzania) in search of water and pasture. Following on their heels are the predators of the savanna- lion, cheetah, wild dog, jackal, hyena and vultures

Day 3. Mara - Nairobi

I would suggest a 2N/3D private safari to Masai Mara with pick up/dropoff at Nairobi, then on arrival from the Mara on the 3rd day, you take can overnight train ride to Mombasa (please note the train only plies Nbo Msa route on specific days of week hence you will need to find thisout ).

There are a couple of BB accommodations/Guesthouses in Mombasa, . why not contact 2 or 3 reputable tour operators (i would suggest some) for their recommendations, detailed itinerary and pricing, then choose what best fit your requirements, preference and budget.

best of luck!

Hi. Can I suggest Tsavo NP as it's only 3 hours drive from the coast. Head straight to Mombasa as soon as you land. Take the domestic flight to MBA from JKIA. For the best night life, north coast or Diani beach. PM me for advise on choice of hotels as I've stayed in most of them.
