Best African safari destination – in addition to Masai Mara Conservancy?

Jump to last reply

I am travelling to Africa for four months and had intended on taking a safari in Tanzania at the end of July for 7 days:

2 days Central Serengeti (Kati Kati Tented Camp);
2 days Northern Serengeti (Tingitana North Serengeti Tented Camp)
1 day Tarangire
1 day Ngorongoro Crater
1 day Lake Eyasi.

I got an offer on the Mahali Mzuri Motorogi Conservancy Masai Mara at end of June, which looks really nice so booked in there for 3 nights (28 June to 1 July). I am now unsure as to whether to continue with my Serengeti safari, or to add on a couple of days safari in the Masai Mara on 1 and 2 July, and a couple of days in one of my other locations (Zambia/Zimbabwe/SA/Namibia/Botswana). I will be visiting the Okavango Delta either way. I would be hitting the Serengeti mid – late July, which seems like the ideal time for the migration. If I do the Tanzania safari, I may climb Mount Meru and visit Zanzibar also vs. not – I will spend longer in my other destinations, and will probably do the Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda (I plan to visit Rwanda either way).

Essentially, I want to leave Africa after four months, having really experienced the safari experience and optimized my chances at the best wildlife viewing. The safari in Tanzania is working out at €2,500 so will take a chunk of my limited budget, which is fine……if it is worth it!

I would be grateful for any advice.

Many thanks
