My spouse and I will be visiting the Masai Mara and Diani Beach. We are really confused about navigating within Kenya and are not able to find flights at convenient times within our budgets.
Upon reaching Kenya, we are planning to take the 7 pm flight from Nairobi to Mombasa and then take a cab to Diani. Is this a good idea? We have estimated the travel time on road from MBA to Diani to be 1 hour. But read in a forum that it could be 3 - 4 hours. Is that true? If so, is it safe for 2 people to take the cab at such a late hour?
We need to find a way to go to Keekorok (Masai Mara) from Diani (Ukunda). We were able to find just one flight by the Mombasa Air Safari at 8 AM costing us $350 each. Is this the only option?
We are considering taking the taxi. Would this save us any money? Is that too much travel time? We want to find buses and couldn't find any. Help please?
Lastly, we are planning to take the cab from Masai Mara to NBO to take the flight back home. I heard the drive would take us about 5-6 hours. Would we be saving anything by taking such an uncomfortable long drive?
Please leave your comments. Thanks
