If a Layover in Amsterdam is recommended, which way?

Jump to last reply

I'm planning to go to TZ in November with Thomson Safari (and words of advice there?) for the Northern Serengeti, Crater, etc.

For a flight just to Europe, I am always wasted on the day of arrival....so I wonder what adding the AMS-JRO 8 hour flight will do to my body. My question is whether it is recommended to spend a night in Amsterdam to get over jet lag or just keep on going and hope for sleep on the plane. I will be flying from ATL-AMS-JRO. I am not interested in going into the city or sightseeing in Amsterdam since the focus of this trip is Tanzania. Any recommendations for a hotel close to the AMS airport?

If a stop-over is recommended, do you find it more beneficial on the way to TZ or on the return. The return flight is 34 hours as compared to 23 hours outbound.

One last question...how do you on the Forum feel about mid-late November for a safari? Does the short rain season hinder wildlife viewing...or help with crowd control.

Many thanks!
