W&O Travel Rainbow Tours
£3,710: Maasai Mara and Diani Beach
Includes flights on 5 March, transfers, four nights at the tented Elephant Pepper Camp and six nights at Kinondo Kwetu in Diani Beach, full board, game drives and park fees. "The all-inclusive price and discount on accommodation at these two top-class lodges offers great value. It's worth paying a little extra for direct flights from the Mara to the coast, as this maximises your time," says Alison Holman at W&O Travel Rainbow Tours (020-7226 1004; rainbowtours.co.uk).
£1,949: Samburu, Aberdare, Lake Nakuru , Maasai Mara and Mombasa
Includes flights on 5 March transfers, seven nights' mixed board on safari and three nights' half board at the Sarova Whitesands resort in Mombasa. "Travel as part of a small group through some of Kenya's most established national parks to see an abundance of wildlife. For a more private experience, the 4x4s can be booked exclusively from £500," says Kirsty Belcher at Tropical Sky (0844 332 9349; tropicalsky.co.uk).
£2,407: Nairobi, Samburu, Mount Kenya, Lake Nakuru, Maasai Mara and Mombasa
Includes flights departing on 10 March, transfers, seven nights' mixed board on safari, park fees, game drives and three nights' half board at the Sarova Whitesands Resort in Mombasa. "The Cheetah Serena is a popular safari with Kuoni, covering a wide area and showing the very best of Kenya. It can be followed by a relaxing stay at Sarova Whitesands Beach Resort & Spa, which provides an excellent range and standard of facilities", says Jemma Purvis at Kuoni (01306 747008; kuoni.co.uk).
