So What Can You Expect?
We went on safari about 6 years ago (kenya) with Somak and they are still operating
I could not fault the vacation at all, it was superb. Arrived in Nairobi and was met by a tour representative and taken to the hotel to freshen up. Spent first night in Nairobi.
Following morning set off on the Safari in a small 8 passenger van (this was the van for the whole weeks safari). Went to Samburu, Sweet Waters Lake Nakuru, Masai Mara. The drives between the various stops were long but the game drives (early morning and late afternoon) were out of this world. Pay as much as you can for the safari as the first class lodges and tented camps are superb. To cut down on travelling you could pick a safari that has flights between the different camps but that is more expensive or opt for a safari that guarentees a four-wheel drive SUV (this will be more comfortable than the typr of van I was in) Plus you would have the SUV to yourself and the driver.
When you arrive at the lodge or camp you will find it has everything that a top class hotel has. Restaurant, bar, pool, first class rooms. When not on a game drive, you can relax or check out some of the activities that the camp has. usually have entertainment and talks about the area and visits from the local tribes.
Also options to do a night-time game drive (highly recommended) Also option to do balloon ride (highly recommended) If you do a safari that is all by van or SUV it can be exhausting as you are up extremely early.
You will not be bored
finally think about adding a week at the beach after the Safari. One of the many concerns people have are how safe is an African safari? But don’t worry!
Hope this helps
