50th Birthday

All,

It's my friends' 50th in July and he wanted to go to Kenya for safari and beach holiday, can anyone recommend a good tour operator bearing in mind we are from London. 2 weeks or 10 days max but he only wants to spend 3 nights safari which i think may be too short, what do you advice?

Kenya is one of my favorite country from my busket list. From Mombasa you can Tsavo and Amboseli which from my personal experiance i will take two nights each park. As per your reqeust i will always book both hotel and safari with local tour operator. Last when we did our safari in Kenya we booked everything with a tour operator.

All the best

I agree 3 days on safari is too short.

Consider Watamu Beach & Tsavo East NP.

No need to prior book a safari.

You will find local Operators in the Watamu Village & in local Hotels selling 2N3D Safaris.

WAY too short. Do not miss the Mara. Or Amboseli. Or Samburu. Lol. Kenya is truly wondrous. I spent nearly a month. I would say minimum of 6 nights safari and that would leave 4 at beach. I used TO.

As for a TO... I have heard good things about Gamewatchers. I booked a 15 day safari in Tanzania for next year through The Wild Source. I can highly recommend them. They also arrange Kenyan trips.
