3G in Kenya and Masi maya

Im on a trip starting in Mombasa Next month. Then Driving to Niarobi and then flying to do a horseback/camping safari in Maasai Mara. Any one recommend a good fast 3G service covering this area?

The best mobile provider is Safaricom both in terms of network coverage and quality, though Safaricom's network covers most of the country it's 3G service doesn't, though you should be OK with 3G in Nairobi and in most parts of Mombasa

I've always found Safaricom very good (these days feels a bit like saying "I like amazon"), and even in the Mara, with a local SIM card you can navigate by trees and bushes on your smarphone. Fun, and incredibly useful.
