Have no ideas in regards to Entebbe but can advice in regards to Nairobi and Mara. But before I give any insight, let me know exactly what you are looking at. Are you looking for safari agents, or just general advice? Again, are you doing luxury safari in Mara or is it mid-range or budget? Finally , if you are keen on spotting the Pink Flamingos that Lake Nakuru was famous for, then the best option will be Lake Bogoria and not Nakuru, since almost all the flamingos have moved to Bogoria. Have private messaged you some open ideas/ options.

we are a group of five Indian families who would be travelling in from Uganda after having seen Ssese Islands and Kampala in end Jun 12.
Our aim is to see the big Five and other aspects like migration of Wilde Beeste as I have been told thats the time they are coming back to Mara from Serengeti. Since we have around five nights, I was tentatively halting at Masai for 2 nights, 1 night at Baringo and 1 night at Nakuru. The night before flying back we were contemplating to spend in Nairobi only.
If you have some idea/ advice considering our awareness u r welcome....
we are of course not looking at high budget options...since ladies and kids are also there we are looking for maximum exploring with minimum running around with the aspect of safety in mind...

3Thanks , according to my experience , Bogoria is much more rewarding than Baringo. With the Pink Flamingos lining the shores of the lake in hundreds of thousands , with the hot springs and the possibility of spotting the Kudu , this will be far ahead of Baringo. You can also have the 'Healing Experience' at the Spa pool.
Mid June is not the best time to see the migration. They start crossing around mid July. But note that there are a lot of resident wildebeests in Mara . And Mara is also very much rewarding in regards other wildlife and culture. Other extras in Mara include visit to the Maasai cultural villages close by for an extra fee .
