Example of 8 days self drive safari and relaxing time on the beach in Kenya .
Summary: This self drive was done by 2 native Kenyans and 2 adults and one 11 years old kid from Norway, in March 2008. The stay included some sightseeing, safaris and quite relaxed life at the beach. The travel started and ended in Nairobi. I will try to explain our experience and show cost / budget on each event. The five fist days we had a 4x4 Range Rover from Erikson Rover Safaris in Nakuru at a rate of 12,000 KSH (200 USD) a day, including camping equipment and an experienced driver / guide.
One day in Nairobi: Giraffe Centre, Sheldrick Trust, and Carnivore restaurant.
Two days in Nakuru: Lake Nakuru National Park
Three days in Masai Mara National Reserve: Game drives, and camping at Crocodile Campsite close to Talek Gate.
Four days at Diani Beach (South Coast Mombasa) in CDC House at the beach (private house).
