    Default African safari - Masai Mara and others

    I am planning a photography trip to Kenya - namely, Samburu (3 days), Nakuru (2 days) and Masai Mara (9 days). I am only looking for 2 more persons to make up a total party of 4 persons.

    The likely itinerary will be as follows:

    Day 1 - 22 August 2008: Arrive in Nairobi

    Day 2 - Morning flight Nairobi to Samburu. (3 nights)

    Days 3 to 5 - Two full days in Samburu NP

    Day 6 - Fly Samburu to Nakuru (2 nights)

    Day 7 - One full day in Nakuru NP

    Day 8 - Fly Nakuru to Masai Mara (9 nights)

    Days 9 to 16 - 8 full days in Masai Mara NP

    Day 17 - 7 September - Morning game drive and afternoon flight to Nairobi. Then flight to Singapore

    Cost - The cost of the safari package (inclusive of accomodation and meals) is budgeted at US4,000 - 4,500 plus tips (about US$25 per person for the guide and US$10 for the service staff). Airfare from SGP is in the region of S$2,000.

    What to see:

    This period has been chosen as it is in the midst of the wilderbeest migration season. As with wildlife nothing is certain but what you can expect will be the magnificent animals such as lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, dik-diks, elands, gazelles, gerenuks, gnu, oryx, topi, and waterbuck, hyena, hyrax, fox, jackal, mongoose, warthogs, and wild dogs. And oh yes, birds - millions of them - the pink flamingos.

    Transport:

    Depending on time, perhaps an internal flight to get to and from Samburu. Rest of the time, 4 wheel drive with no more than 2 passengers per vehicle.

    Other comments:

    This will not be a cheap trip but one a nature photographer will never forget.

    Cheers
