booking a safari through a tour operater

First time in Kenya. We have booked a 2 week holiday in March 2014 staying at Diane Sea Resort Hotel and plan to the 4 day, 3 night safari to Tsavo East Amboseli & West Tsavo. Is there a list of recomended tour operators and how far in advance do we need to book. I have emailed some companies but have found the prices to differ a lot and 1 of them wanted a £1000 deposit, is this normal?

Thank You in advance..................... :-)

hi you can check with Aramati safaris also you can probably do a bank transfer for deposit to secure the room ,but it is too early though maybe at the beginning of the 2014

IMO not too earky at all.. We booked our trip about 11 months ahead.. And IIRC, needed a 25% deposit... You will pay a service fee, but if it will make you feel more comfortwble, deal with an operator who will accept credit cards. That way, yiou have a bit of protection if you are nervous about doing money transfers.

Try steenbok safaris.. George did a great job for us
