Tanzania July 2014: Itinterary Help

Jump to last reply

Hello, everyone. I've been doing a ton of research and reading through a lot of past posts. I think I'm at the point where I could really use (and would really appreciate) some specific feedback before I start contacting tour companies.

WHERE: Northern Tanzania.
WHEN: Late July 2014.
WHAT: Private driving safari, starting in Arusha.
HOW LONG: Nine nights (the first night is a late-night arrival to JRO).
BUDGET: $375 per person per day for two people, give or take.
GOALS: (1) See lots of wildlife! (2) Avoid crowds as much as possible. (3) Minimize long driving distances and avoid moving around from camp to camp as much as possible.
ROUGH ITINERARY:
Nights 1-2: Arusha
Nights 3-4: Tarangire
Night 5: Lake Manyara
Nights 6-7: Ngorongoro
Nights 8-9: Central Serengeti
Fly from Central Serengeti via Arush to Zanibar.

All comments welcome, but I also have a couple of specific questions:
(1) Do we need to be in the Northern Serengeti at this time of the year, or will Central Serengeti suffice?
(2) Pros and cons of including Lake Manyara?

Thanks very much in advance. This forum has been invaluable.

Lou
