Hi all members, this is my first post in Trip Advisor. Me and wife are planning to go for a trip to Kenya during late August this year. We have never been to that part of the world and your helps and suggestions are highly required to plan this trip. We are originally from India, but are now staying in Malaysia for our jobs.
I was studying the discussions here and planned a possible itinerary as follows:
Day 1: Nairobi->Amboseli-> afternoon game drive.
Day 2: Amboseli (2 game drives)-> [is it possible to send us to Nairobi in the evening and overnight stay at hotel in Nairobi?]
Day 3: Nairobi-> Masai Mara-> afternoon game drive.
Day 4 & 5: Full day game drives in Masai Mara (3 drives per day including the early morning).
Day 6: Morning drive-> after breakfast return to Nairobi.
I talked to few travel agencies. But they arrange only one drive on day 2 and for the stay in Mara, they arrange only one early morning safari. According to my experience of Indian jungles, there is better chance of spotting leopard during early morning. They said, for budget safari accommodations outside the park, it is not possible. We were quoted around 2000 USD..basic tented accommodations outside the parks. Comments and suggestions about the itinerary are welcome.
Is it impossible to start from Amboseli for Nairobi after 7pm?
