Trip Report OAT Tanzania Trip with Extensions

Jump to last reply

My friend and I just booked an OAT Trip to Tanzania for February 6th. Now we have to decide about the two extensions offered. I think the pre-trip extensions sounds really good and wonder if we would be missing much if we did not take the post-trip extension to the Masai Mara. If we did both, we would be away for 23 days which might be a bit too much, but perhaps very worthwhile. I have listed the itinerary for the pre-trip, the post-trip and the base trip.

Pre-Trip is for 3 nights and 2 ½ days of game drives, "Meet the Maasai: Life in the Foothills of Kilimanjaro". This trip is in a private game preserve at Sinya Camp, uses open vehicles, includes several game drives and a trip to a Maasai village and school. It begins right after our arrival in Arusha.

Post-Trip is "Kenya's Masai Mara" and is for 5 nights, 2 full days and 2 half days of game drives. It begins right after our return to Arusha with a flight to Nairobi. We would be staying at an OAT tented camp.

The game view part of the base trip includes:
1 day at Arusha Park
2 nights in Tarangire at the Tarangire Tented River Camp
2 nights at Ngorongoro at the Ngo Farm House
3 nights at an OAT tented camp in the Serengeti
A stop at Olduvai on way bach to Arusha

This is a lot to ask of you folks, but it would be terrific if you would review this with us. What are your thoughts about the extensions? Both or just one and which?
