Tanzania Safari Planning

Jump to last reply

Planning a safari trip to Tanzania for Feb 2014 and there are a few things that I'm fuzzy on:

- Many say that getting a good guide is very important but does the same guide stay with you the whole trip ? Don't individual lodges have there own guides ? When you fly to next camp does the guide also fly with you ? How does this all work ?

- Are there any places where you can do night drives ?

- Why are African safari trips so expensive, where does all the money go ? They are much cheaper in India for example.

- Are there good cheetah areas in Tanzania for Feb. ?

- Confused re Ngorogoro, is it just the crater or a park or a whole geographic area, and what is the best strategy to see it/them for Feb. ?

Thanks in advance,
Christo.
