Early July Safari in Kenya or Tanzania

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! I'm planning a trip for early July (July 1 - 8) for a safari in Africa. We thought we had settled on Tanzania, but one of the travel agents we spoke to said that at that point in the year, our best bet was to skip Tarangire (too many tsetse flies and not much to see) and Ngorongoro and instead do four days in the Masai Mara and four days in the Serengeti to make sure we catch the migration and don't miss out. Does that make sense? Otherwise, our plan is to concentrate just on Tanzania, and do the following:

Day 1: Tarangire
Day 2: Ngorongoro Crater
Day 3: Southcentral Cerengeti (Olduvai)
Day 4: Serian/Mbalageti/Dunia
Day 5: Serian/Mbalageti/Dunia
Day 6: Serian/Mbalageti/Sayari Mara
Day 7: Serian/Mbalageti/ Sayari Mara
Day 8: Serian/Mbalageti/Sayari Mara

Any advice would be helpful (including which of the camps on Days 4-8 might be the best for the time period.

Thanks so much!
