Patty,

Just FYI: www.digitalfrontier.com/sandrivers/ is the old 2000 website previously published at www.sandrivers.com, and Nomad Safaris (TZ) have become Nomad Tanzania, after the merger with Nomad Safari Guides and Mahale Ltd.

cooncat,
Try searching for Sand Rivers on this forum. I've seen a few reports posted.

Hello everyone. Just want to say I'm very impressed with all the support you're giving to Wanderlust123 right now. I wish I could offer her some advice myself. I would be absolutely fuming. I wanted to try to answer some of your questions so that hopefully you can give me a few more thoughts on my own plans. A lot of you asked me stuff, so I'll do my best to clarify. I think she planned the itinerary the way she did because I did say I enjoyed hiking. On one leg of the trip - I would hike all day from Ilmisigyo camp to Olduvai camp. (Well most of the way. A 4-wheel drive comes in at some point to drive me into camp.) But as I said in my first post I was scratching my head over the three nights at Gibbs, as well. Also the two nights in Arusha. When I get to a new country I immediately go on its time, so I really don't want to rest too much. It confuses my body more that way, for some reason! I think part of this plan is based on cost for one person. Would I be better off traveling at a different time of year? If I do the northern Tanz route, would you be willing to share other camp options for me? Someone asked if I was "into" budget lodging. The answer is, in a perfect world...no. But on the other hand, while the luxury lodges and camps are stunning, I don't need that level of accommodations. My preference would be to stay in camps the entire time. I really just want to hang out with people who care about Africa, With whom I can enjoy a drink and good concersation, and to have high-quality, passionate guides...OK well, don't we all! Does this help you to help me??

Thanks again everyone
