Tanzania Northern Camping Safari companion/mate

Jump to last reply

I have booked a one week camping safari leaving Arusha Oct 9 to Oct 14. So far I am going solo and whomever would join me would be the only one, so it would not be too crowded but open if there are two of you.

I'm a seasoned traveler but for this trip I would rather share the experience with another traveler. I'm open to either man or woman.

The tour is with Good Earth they have a great track record check them out. Please let me know as soon as possible if you are really interested. I am leaving on Oct 1 so I would rather get everything settled.

Here is a brief description of the itinerary :
Day 1 (Oct 09): Arusha/Tarangire
Leave Arusha for Tarangire; game drives in Tarangire. The park is famous for its large herds of elephants.
Estimated driving distance: 2.5hrs drive
Activities: Game drives
