Driving times & Distances??

I am looking at visiting Tanzania and or Kenya in January. I hear the driving is awful, but we are trying to balance comfort and expenditures so we are trying to balance driving versus flying, at least for some parts of the trip. Can anyone tell me the distances, driving times and road conditions for:

Arusha to Tarangire
Tarangire to Lake Manyara
Lake Manyara to Ngorongoro
Ngorongoro to Serengeti

Sweetwater to Samburu
Samburu to Nanyuki
Nairobi to Amboseli

I didn't find the driving awful. We haven't done your traject but we (our driver) drove abt. 3000 km in one week time and enjoyed every minute of it.
Our itinerary was Mombasa-Tsavo-Amboseli-Lake Nakuru-Masai Mara-Nairobi.
It was indeed not a very comfortable journey because most of the roads are unpaved but driving through the villages and cities was an adventure in itself. You won't see the real African life from the window of an airplane.
Here's a link to one of my pictures: http://www.virtualtourist.com/p/.125...a-30-7-202.jpg - taken on the 'highway' from Kisumu to Nairobi.
