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.
I have not been myself to the campsite you are mentioning. I am sure it will be an amazing experience no matter what. Will you have your own vehicle? We had our own vehicle and spent 4 nights in Crocodile Camp outside the park (which is so much cheaper) and hired than for the game drive a woman massai guide. I have been all over Africa in many many safaris but I can say that the Massai Mara with the private guidance of this girl was the best safari experience I ever had!
