Tanzania camping safari itinerary

Jump to last reply

I would welcome comment on a planned itinerary for a camping Safari in Tanzania in early June. We (2 daughters, now mid-20's, my wife, and I) had a wonderful camping safari in Botswana in 2005 and hope this is similarly enjoyable. We are by far more interested in wildlife viewing than other things such as Kili climbs, cultural visits, etc. We have a week and Peter Reijmes from African Heart Expeditions proposes the following:

Day 1
Arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport. Collect a the airport and transfer to Arusha for overnight in Ilboru Safari Lodge.
Day 2
Collect at your hotel after breakfast and transfer to Tarangire National Park for a safari with picnic lunch. Dinner and overnight on a public campsite inside the National Park.
Day 3
Transfer to Lake Manyara for a full day safari with picnic lunch. Dinner and overnight on a public campsite in Mto Wa Mbu Village.
Day 4
Proceed to the Serengeti for a afternoon safari. Dinner and overnight on a public campsite inside the Serengeti.
Day 5
Full day safari in the Serengeti. Dinner and overnight on the same campsite.
Day 6
Morning safari. Afternoon transfer to the Ngorongoro Crater for overnight on Simba Campsite on the crater rim.
Day 7
Descend into the Crater for a safari with picnic lunch on the crater floor ( 6-hrs permit).
Day 8
Another Crater game drive in the morning and then return to Kilimanjaro Airport for evening departure.

I would be interested in your opinions. Thanks.
