Want the "BETTER" local based tour operators for Tanzanian Safari

Jump to last reply

My wife and I have delayed visiting Africa thought we made it to all the others, yes, Antartica, and want a "WOW" experience but we may be too late. I read of 10+ vehicles around a tree waiting for a leopard toi show itself at certain spots. I also read the limited off-road restrictions and while I understand them it seems one can miss many opportunities to get up close. We also like our creature comforts and though I went to Boy Scout camp and my wife's family did a lot of camping we are now in our 60's and are used to comfortable king beds with with nice size rooms, we are not in need of suites, plunge pools though I know we will miss the A/C but need big ceiling fans and decent meals.
Can you suggest what local providers we shou;ld consider, we want to keep all the money in Tanzania, the areas that are must see such as the crater and the lodging we should reques?. We were considering going in late February (the shoulder season I gather for lodge rates) just before the rainy season, so we read, and were considering a 9 or 10 day safari. Our price range is $4500-$5500/person inclusive of fees and taxes, etc. Thanks..
