We are planning to come to Kenya in November and are trying to decide on safari plans. So confusing, so many tour operators with so many options!!! I've heard that the attraction of Amboseli NP is the sight of elephants with Mt Kilimanjaro as the background. What is the likelihood of Mt. K being visible at that time of year. I know that "you can never tell" but since we are more interested in Masai Mara and the Rift lakes, and the drive is long to Amboseli from there, is it worth it to go there? If we do go, we're also trying to decide whether or not to do it as a continuous 8 or 9 day trip or to break it up with a night or two in Nairobi before doing a separate trip to Amboseli. We don't have our flights into Kenya yet, so time is not critical.
Thanks for the help; I value this forum.
