Serengeti AND Masai Mara?

Jump to last reply

I'm going to Tanzania in late Sept. for 10 days/ 9 nights with Duma Explorers. Tour goes:
Arusha
Tarangire
Ngorongoro
Central Serengeti
North Serengeti
Arusha

Instead of flying back to Arusha, we want to fly from Kogatende Airstrip to Masai Mara for 4 days/ 3 nights. It has also been suggested that we skip N. Serengeti if we are going to Masai Mara (redundant) and fly there from Seronera Airstrip in C. Serengeti.

Flying from the Serengeti to Masai Mara seems rather difficult (2 planes plus a shuttle) and expensive. Is it worth it? Will we see the same wildlife in the northern Serengeti? I'm wondering if we should just skip Kenya and stay in Tanzania, and maybe add another day in the north. Suggestions?

Any advise would be welcome. Thanks!
