Itinerary #5 – Kenya camping details and distances
We drove from the Malaba border post in the west of Kenya towards Nairobi, where after a brief break we went north to Mt Kenya before turning south towards the Masai Mara again, exiting Kenya on their South-Western border with Tanzania at Isibania.
· Two of our favorite campsite through this trip has been Camp Carnelly as well as Castle Forest Lodge – be sure not to miss them!
Top tip / advisable changes to our itinerary:
· We stayed at the Mara Serena Lodge in the Masia Mara Triangle as a treat. There is a beautifully situated campsite in the Triangle that we would stay over at next time…and just go to the Lodge for a couple of drinks whilst watching the view!
· The eastern part of Kenya has a number of amazing places to explore, including Tsave West and the coastline…one can easily send another 2 weeks doing an eastern circuit. We had to take a couple of days out at Jungle Junction for some much needed recovery post picking up a nasty virus, and had to cut the eastern part of the route out of our plans.
