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.
