Budget Camping Safari in Masai Mara

by carnsoreboxer

I'm very lucky! My husband has to travel to Nairobi in Nov on business. He is anxious that I travel with him as this may be his last trip down. However, it is a holiday I have not budgeted for so am trying to do as much as I can as cheaply as possible. We were hoping to travel to Masai Mara but flying tours are too expensive, if I can come up with a good overland camping trip for 1 or 2 nights at a good price I know we will go.

So please help - can anyone recommend a good budget camping trip? I am bogged down going through the internet and most don't display any prices either.

Will be very thankful of any help and assistance I get and thank you in advance

The reason a lot of them don't display prices could be that the price depends on a lot of things, for example how many people are travelling, and what sort of accommodation you are looking for. Many of the tour operators are probably also prepared to negotiate about the price.

If you check out Homanded's Kenya page here on VT you will find a lot of useful info about picking a tour operator. I usually go on safari with and found them very good.

Your best bet is to send emails to a number of companies, with details on what exactly you want to do, what you want to see and what accommodation you want in order to get a feel for what offers are out there, and try to negotiate.

Hi. I always use the same small tour company when I go to Kenya and we stay in a small(2 permanent tents) campsite just outside the gates of the Masaii Mara. It is run by a Masaii family and has lovely clean tents, very hot water and the very best cook you could imagine. I am not sure how much it costs but you could enquire about prices with David at Pal-Davis Adventures Kenya. He is very helpful. ( 2 night,3 day trip is very common and it is around 6 hours driving to the Mara from Nairobi with a lunch stop included. We always drive, it is much cheaper and you see more of Kenya. Have fun, Anne

The question is whats your budget? Actually in truth Maasai Mara is by far the best game reserve.Here you can enjoy your holiday having game rides in the morning and evening.

Information about MAASAI MARA
The Maasai Mara is Kenya’s most celebrated game park, it offers the possibility of seeing "the big five" and many other species of game. This is where the great wildebeest migration is a spectacle to behold for any would be visitor to Kenya mainly in July and August of each year.

Here you will get a glimpse of Culture and you will get to see wild life at its best.

I would suggest you have a lodge Safari at the Maasai Mara.Camps at the Maasai Mara are usually expensive.

I was in Kenya in September, and organized a safari trip with a company High Peaks Trekking And Safaris, (I found them on internet). I can recommend them. The trip was excellent organized, everything on time, excellent guide, no problems. Very good food, made by their cook during our safari trip.

Travel Tips for Nairobi

Good banks in Nairobi

by Osmun79

There are 3 major banks in Nairobi: KCB, Standard Charter, and Barclay's. Of the three, I prefer using Barclays or Standard Charter because their ATM's are relatively private and they are usually working. I have had some issues with KCB's ATM's not working alot of the time, so I don't use them. Standard Charter and KCB are throughout the downtown,and you can find the main Barclay's hub off of Mama Ngina street on Simba St.

Coffee Culture

by fishandchips

Kenya is a well known grower and seller of coffee beans all over the world. In Nairobi and other Kenyan places, the product is controlled by the Coffee Board and planters union. The union serves 300 coffee societies with 700,000 members, mainly small-scale Kenyan farmers so is a vital cog in Kenya's economy.

The current situation is a bit dire with Kenya Planters' Co-operative Union (KPCU) recently placed under receivership.

You can see the main coffee mill of the KPCU in Nairobi. The original Mill apparently burnt down in the late 1950's so the one in this photo is the new version.

Overviewing Nairobi, the Capital City

by greekcypriot

Known as the safari capital of Africa, this former Maasai watering hole is an energetic, modern city that offers a fascinating introduction to both wildlife and nightlife.

Music clubs pulse with life, shops and markets bustle, and international restaurants sit alongside those offering more regional fare. Top sights include the Karen Blixen Museum, Giraffe Centre and the black rhinos of Nairobi National Park. The compact city center is safe to walk in and taxis make other areas accessible.


by SirRichard

Another typical masai item, this gourds are used by them to mix the milk with animal blood. This energetic drink is considered as a drink for strenght for the male warriors. You will find many more tribal items, as well as Natural History exhibitions at the National Museum, in Museum Road (9.30 to 18 daily). I thought of buying one at a souvenir shop, but they are not very useful at an 'occidental' house...

Great Rift Valley

by grets

The Great Rift Valley is a geographical valley-like feature running 5000km through the African landscape from Syria to Mozambique. It was created by the separation of the African and Arabic tectonic plates some 35 million years ago. It varies in width from 30-100 km and in depth from a few hundred to several thousand metres. The valley has no outlet to the sea, therefore its lakes tend to have as high mineral content as the salt is left behind by evaporation. The formation of the Rift Valley continues: within a few million years, eastern Africa will probably split off to form a new landmass
