I am going on my honeymoon to Africa (first time-so excited!) and would love some help with my itinerary. I am coming from NYC so I hear I have to travel to Nairobi via London which usually puts flight arrivals in the evening at Nairobi (please correct me if I'm wrong). If so, then I figure I have to stay a night in Nairobi since I must imagine traveling at 10p is not safe. So here is my prelim itinerary.
Day 0-1: Travel from JFK to Nairobi. Stay overnight
Day 2-3: Travel to Ol Donyo lodge and see Amboseli Park, etc. (Flight vs. drive-any thoughts?). Stay 2 nights.
Day 4-5: Flight to Masai Mara and stay at either Naibor camp or Mara plains camp for 2 nights (thinking about extending it to 3 nights- thoughts?)
Day 6-7: TBA. Don't know where to go after this. Thinking L. Nakuru, L. Navaisha, or Abedare park but can't figure out what lodge/hotel to stay at. Want to find a place that is in the middle from drive back from Masai Mara to Nairobi so the the drive is 2-3 hours each leg (my fiancee is not a fan of rough car rides longer 4 hours)
Day 8: back to Nairobi and fly to Seychelles for 5 nights.
I would love any feedback on this itinerary!
