Input requested (please) on Tanzania trip

Jump to last reply

Hi. We are first time to Africa travelers and would love some input on the itinerary suggested to us. It'll be 4 of us (me,hub,2 children in their 20s) on a private tour in March.
Day 1- Arusha activities......Serena Mountain Village
Day 2- Drive to Lake Manyara. Afternoon game drive, dinner,optional evening drive.....Lake Manyara Serena Lodge
Day 3- morning drive in Manyara NP. Drive to Ngorongoro Serena Lodge in time for lunch,then guided walk along rim...overnight here
Day 4-full day in crater w picnic...dinner and overnight same place
Day 5- drive to Serengeti Plains (visit Olduvai en route). Arrive camp for lunch,aft game drive, dinner.......Lemala Ndutu OR Asilia Dunia (?? Which is best)
Day 6- game drives....stay same as above
Day 7- morning game drive. Drive to Central Serengeti, arrive at camp in time for lunch,afternoon game drive, dinner......Lemala E-wajan OR Asilia Olakira (?? Again question which to choose)
Day 8- game drives and stay at same as above
Day 9 -hang out a bit then fly back to Arusha for transfer out

What think? Staying at the Asilia Camps is about $1000 more per person....is it worth it? Note: I tend to be a "high maintenance " person. Won't label my family but let's say they aren't far off. Many thanks in advance for comment.
