Does it work out cheaper to travel independently to Mombassa

Hi,

I am missing Kenya soooo much, we went for the first time in March this year and I loved every minute, just want to go back. I was wondering if anyone knows a good airline and if it would be cheaper than booking a package holiday. Would definately go back to the Voyager. All tips advice welcome.

Thank you.

Sue.

lol sue

you have the bug girl

i think you need to ring round and see what prices you can get, do you want all inclusive or do you want to do bb etc and compare like for like

have done it both ways and really not much in it going it your self and doing a package, doing it yourself you could squeeze a few days more in as your not restricted on flights

Hi Sue,

This bug is an awfully expensive one and no cured by any drugs LOL !!!!

Well we were also out in March this year and booked again almost as soon as we got home for September.

We got a good quote from travel zoo flying with Kenya Airways (loads of luggage allowance) and staying at Travellers, anyway we took this quote with us to Thomas Cook who matched the price and done all the arranging for us, this holiday is actually a Somack deal. The deals are out there you just need to stay firm with your budget and get the travel agents to do the work for you. Happy hunting and good luck.

If we can help further let me know.

Hi ya, I think we talked last year in March, I think you was on a different flight different terminal, yeah we had such a fantastic time, we made friends with a couple of the beach boys(we was at the Voyager) who just looked after us, they were a bit cheeky but we did not give in and I think they respected this, they email us regularly. I miss it all so much, It was our first time and I could not fault any part of the holiday at all only they having to come home.

We done so much independently and from safari, to mombassa to visiting an orphanage to meeing the Kenyans but there is still so much more to do.

thank you for you advice I am not shy so will try to do some wheeling and dealing. I will let you know how I get on.

Cheers Sue : )
