Choosing best park to see in late december 2013

Greetings everyone!

We now faced dilemma with choosing park to see in 23-27 December

We going to fly to Kigale 14 December and travel in Uganda for 8-9 days (hopefully Bwindy, Quinn Elizabeth and Entebb or Jinja and after going to Kenia there I want to stay at Naivasha for one day at least.

Our contact strongly recommend us to see Samburu and Masai Mara.

But seems like we will not be able to spend a week for it. My girlfriend flight back 3 January and we going to spend couple days at sea.

So question is which park to choose keeping in mind that for that moment we will already see some parks in Uganda. Is seeng both this parks this time is a must or we can choose one of parks withour real regrets?

Probably some other ideas about parks?

If those 5/days include Naivasha and your budget allows to fly, can visit Naivasha (1/nt) and Masai Mara (4nts), then flight back to Nairobi for homebound. While driving from Nairobi to Naivasha is reasonable, about 1.5/hrs... that to/from the Masai Mara is minimum 5/hrs (often longer on not the best roads.) And know the rates will be at the highest as these are over the New Year's dates.

Good luck!

I would also suggest the Masai Mara. It has a lot of game, when compared to the other parks you are visiting.

hi,

Masai Mara is the best if you will have 3-4 over nights .you can change the accommodation facilities in steady of being in one safari camp or lodge,just have a blend of both so that you enjoy the Vast Masai Mara
