    Hey Shaun! You'll have a great time no matter what. Kenya is so fascinating, and the wildlife is incredible!


    I only have two recommendations:

    First: check out the Elephant orphanage in Nairobi. It is expensive by Kenya standards, but it might have been the happiest hour of my whole life!! You can't watch those guys and not smile.

    Second: I lucked out and went on a tour that involved 3 days of walking and 4 days of driving. The walking safari portion was AWESOME and taught me a lot about the land and the rhythm of life that I wouldn't have seen otherwise. We didn't see many animals up close during the walking portion, but plenty once we were driving inside the Maasai Mara National Reserve. So if you can find a safari that includes a walking portion - take it!

      Awesome Emily! Elephant orphanage - check. How much walking is involved in a walking safari? · (0 likelikes)

    • Emily N.

      It's a lot of walking - basically a few hours in the morning and a few hours after lunch. (We walked from campsite to campsite.) But the land is very flat, the weather is perfect, and our guides were very conscious of the pace. We had a variety of fitness levels in the group, and no one seemed to find it too difficult. I'd say that the average person would have no problem. It's really just a question of whether you like walking! Oh, and remember to re-apply sunscreen! · (1 likelikes)

    We spend three weeks with James Robertson of Kerr and Downey. Excellent tour, costly but worth it. They take you to the areas that no one else goes..in three weeks we had only one day where we saw other safaris..other than that...Kenya was ours!
