Nairobi, Kenya marks the end of the road for our 8-week trip through southern and east Africa. Crossing over from Tanzania was a little sad because we knew we would have to say goodbye to the friends we made on the overland safari, but we're excited about our next adventure in northern Africa. We had a great trip - our highlights are the sand dunes in Namibia, the Okavango Delta in Botswana, the beaches at Zanzibar, and the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. We also met many interesting people and shared a lot of good times. Many of us were at different stages of an "around the world" trip and it was fun swapping stories.

Now we are off to Morocco, and we are looking forward to traveling at our own pace (Ed will be able to take as long as needed to get that perfect shot). We'll just have to see where the road takes us...not knowing exactly where we'll be the next day will be an interesting challenge!

I am traveling to Kenya on August 19th to September 02 for a safari tour through Kenya and Tanzania, which I have not yet booked.

When I go on a safari, is it better to go in a safari vehicle, mini bus or overland truck?

If anyone has any insight, please let me know.

We did safaris on both overland trucks and safari vehicles.
Overland trucks - the vehicles were high so you could see quite far and there are lots of people looking out for the animals.. You could also move around the vehicle. The downside is that the trucks can't go to the same places as the smaller safari vehicles and there are more people on the overland trucks
Safari vehicles - these are smaller to the ground and some of them have open tops.
I can't say we found one better than the other. It really depends on which park and area you're visiting. Many overland tours use the safari rides in certain parks so you might be able to do both.

Good for you people...great post. If you are keen to learn more about Kenya or East Africa general, visit I found a lot of useful information there, daily updated information about wildlife and other issues, like business, health, stuff.

Cheers, Mike
