Good deal?!Hi everyone! Im new in here and would like to have some opinions.
1-After searching on the net i found a KATO safari operator who proposed me a 7 days budget/camping safari for 880 $, visiting Mara/Amboseli and Nakuru. Everything´s included, meals, water, parks fee.... Is it a good deal for a camping safari?!
2- Also is it possible to visit Hells Gate in 1 day and come back to Nairobi on time to catch my flight at 23 pm? If so, which way shall i do it on a budget also?

1Your safari sounds much too cheap - it comes out at not much more than $100pppd. However, park fees are c. $80 pppd. A campsite inside the parks c. $25 pppd. Then there is the cost of a vehicle, fuel, staff (accommodation/food and entry fees for staff). Check very carefully what is included. How much time in the parks, are you camping in/near the parks etc etc?
Yes generally you should be able to viisit Hell's Gate on a day trip. However, relying on public transport and factoring in the logistics of getting you and your luggage to the airport obviously creates risks. Traffic in Nairobi can be ferocious and it can take a couple of hours to get across town.
