Where to go and stay in Serengeti in July

Jump to last reply


Although this is the first time I’m posting I’ve used Fodor’s forums extensively for personalizing my travel plans by doing a lot of research here…and that was sufficient for the developed/ globalized parts of the world. Tanzania / Africa has to be either a off- the-rack package or a custom made one with even the minutest details taken care off. To me it seems like a place where we cannot go with a vague plan forget wandering off or making ad-hoc plans. I know most of you’ll must be thinking I’m already late…that’s why I need your help ☺.

We plan to do Tanzania in July 2011. The broad itinerary is :

7th July Nairobi

8th July Arusha

9th – 17th Climb Kilimanjaro

18th – 20th Serengeti

20th – 22nd Zanzibar

22nd –Dar-e-Salaam

I need help on the Serengeti bit of the itinerary, would be very helpful if you’ll give inputs on whether Grumeti is the best area to stay to see the migration or at least catch a good chunk of it and options of operators for canvas tents in the area.
