Camp guides vs. private guides in Tanzania

Jump to last reply

Hi - I've made a lot of progress, have almost finalized the itinerary, and gotten quotes back from ATR, Planet Africa, Roys and Warrior Trails.

There's one big difference between ATR and the rest. ATR does not have their own guide/vehicle, so will use a guide/vehicle from one of the companies that runs the camps (in our case, probably Asilia). The guide/vehicle will still be with us the entire trip even during our stays at non-Asilia camps.

The rest all have their own guides/vehicles. And we will have one for the entire trip.

What's the collective wisdom here? Is there a substantial difference between the 2 approaches?
