HIGH SCHOOL TOUR IN KENYA
Is 7 days enough?

YOU ASKED

We have 7 days for our high school tour in Kenya and we want to visit Amboseli, Tsavo, Samburu, Nakuru and Masai Mara national parks. Is 7 days enough?


ANNE HUYSMAN REPLIES

The quality of your study tour in Kenya is to a large extent determined by the time you spend in the park/s you visit rather than the total number of parks in the itinerary for the school tour.

Any of the 5 Kenya national parks that you have on wish-list is worth visiting but squeezing all that into 7 days will in my opinion not give quality time for observing animals, birds and may be throwing in a guided walk.

Consider the parks are far off from each other and the road conditions in Kenya are (at places) rough, meaning that transferring from one park to another can take the better part of a day.

Why not consider taking at most 2 major parks e.g. Masai Mara and lake Nakuru, allowing at least 2 days in each and then the remaining 2 days visit the small national parks where you can still game and do guided walking safaris.
