          I'm trying to figure out how to book the place. If I use the Expedia, how do I arrange the pick up from the airport? I couldn't find the way to contact the lodge directly. And my travel agent in Nairobi is taking more than 2 weeks to get back to me to book it.

          Dear Betty: I am thinking going with Mara Explorers because of the great reviews found on Tripadvisor. My question is: I would like to witness the great migration of animals crossing the Mara River. How far is the camp from the Mara River? I see that you indeed saw animals crossing the river. I want to see if I have a chance to witness the migration, and this only can be achieved if the camp is closer to the river. Please advise, thank you...
