Kenya in august

hi everyone!

Am off to Kenya with my family on the second week of August for 2 weeks. This time we are doing Mara for 3 days at Mara intrapids plus Ballon Flight. Any body who as been there?

How are the tents, can they accomodate 3 adults?

My local tour operator say is okay but, just Concerned with the comfort of my father.

Please Advice.

The tents at Mara Intrepid's were all upgraded and refurbished last year... they're lovely.

As to whether they can accommodate 3/adults? Might be tight, depending on whether they use 1/double and 1/single (twin) beds or 3/single beds. Actually, the triple is better suited if the third person is a child.

You may want to get specifics from your agent how a regular tent set for 3/adults or consider the Family tent - 2/tents joined by a screened breezeway/living area with chairs, sofa and table. No doubt, added price, but ask.

Hi Carl,

Seems am booked with the same company like you( HITS)

being my second time with them after a successful tour last year, I would have that confidence.

Ballon Flight is costing us $425 per person.

I find it expensive, but reading through this forum, have seen the price to be reasonable.
