      I heard about a Maasai village that is near the Iremito gate. Does anyone have any information about it? For instance - how does it look? How big is it? How many Maasai people live there? Is it a big community or just a few people?

    • Game drive costs

      Masai Mara Game Reserve Mar 15, 2014 at 3:00 PM

      What is the typical cost to do a game drive? Can you request a time? When is the best time to do game drives? From my research it appears morning and late afternoon may be best. My preference is obviously to see what I can and to organize my time that makes the most sense. I will be traveling in mid July 2014. In advance, thank you!

    • Lake Nakuru. Is it worth it?

      Masai Mara Game Reserve Jul 18, 2013 at 1:41 AM

      Our itinerary currently consists of 4 days in the Masai Mara. I have come across some mixed reviews about Lake Nakuru. I also read somewhere that there aren't that many flamingoes any longer in Lake Nakuru. Do you think it's worth the drive (5 hours from Masai Mara) to spend one day there? Should we stay at the Masai Mara one more day or take that trip to Lake Nakuru? Or do you have any other suggestions for what we could do for that one day?

      Thanks!

    • Masai Mara or Serengeti in mid November?

      Masai Mara Game Reserve Feb 18, 2013 at 7:58 PM

      I'm trying to plan a safari for my honeymoon in November, but I keep reading conflicting information. Would I be better off visiting Masai Mara or the Serengeti in mid November? Is this heavy rain season for either of these regions and what would be our chances of actually spotting game during this time? We are interested in seeing the big 5, of course, as well as other wildlife if possible. Any tour recommendations and/or camps/lodges suggestions would be of great help. I've been looking at Kensignton Tours...has anyone ever toured with them?

    • Mara in June a good time for photography?

      I am planning to visit Masai Mara around June 20th. Primary objective is photography. I am aware that the migration may not start by then. I am ok with it. But my question is, is it good time to spot all other animals?. I heard grass will be tall that time and photographing will be difficult. Is it true?

      Thanks in advance.

      Looking for best Safari experience with family of 5

      Masai Mara Game Reserve Jan 19, 2013 at 8:59 AM

      Hi there. I am new to Virtual Tourist but would like to ask for advice on booking a 3 night Safari at Masai Mara. Travelling with my husband and 3 boys ages 17,14,12. I have looked at many different options for accomodations but have decided that a luxury tent at a smaller property is what we prefer. We would like to include private game drives in a 4 X 4 open jeep. There are SO many options that I feel overwhelmed with deciding on a property. I am looking at the Fairmont Safari Club as I have heard many good things about it but wonder if it's too big of a camp and we might not get the personalized unique experience we are hoping for.

      Dear Vter's,

      I'm planning for a trip to Nairobi & Masai Mara in August. I need reply on following:

      1) Masai Mara reserve fees is USD 70/night. Is it payable for each night of stay or one time online. we are spending 2 nights in reserve.
      I've checked website of Narok city council, as per that "Daily fees” means fee for one day/ twenty four hours or thereof continuous stay within a specified site in the Maasai Game Reserve.

      Is that means we've to pay total USD 70 for our stay, as we will stay inside Reserve and making only 1 entry. Please confirm.

      2) We are group of 6 persons with 2 children, looking forward to arrange transportation facility by ourselves, instead of tour package, in order to do things as per our convinience. Any recommendations.

      3) Our flight is reaching 2.30 am to Nairobi. Is it safe to start driving for Masai Mara around 4.30am/5.00am in the morning.

      Thanks in advance.

      regards
