Self Driving in Amboselli

Secondly, is self drive and camping an option assuming a 4 x 4 is required? Does anyone have a reliable contact for a hire firm in Nirobi that rents out 4 x 4 kitted out for camping? Thanks in advance Best Sean

Just one thing - I'm thinking you might not have experienced much of East Africa before? If that's true, I'd make sure you have read a few things about self driving in this part of the world before you amke a decision. It's perfectly possible, and can be great fun. But it's not always great for the uninitiated and I think you'd want to know what you're letting yourself in for. (In Kenya they say you can spot the drunk driver because they're going in a straight line, not avoiding the pot holes...) That said, I think Amboseli would be a pretty good place to start self driving, with no major problems finding the place and a straightforward road network when you're there, with easy game viewing too.
