How did your trip go? I am planning a very similar itinerary next August, and was wondering about the effect of the drought. Did you see many animals?

Hi Gem003 ... You were originally going to Amboseli instead of Samburu... what made you change your mind...?

I'm going on a Kenya/Tanzania safari and I want to go to Mara and Nakuru but not sure about Samburu or Amboseli... since I am crossing to Tanzania, Amboseli makes sense because its on the way, but maybe Samburu is much better in terms of game viewing...

For the ones that have been to both parks, could you share your thoughts on this?

Thanks so much !
