First Tanzania Safari

Friends,
This is our first Safari trip, so no advices would be unnecessary.
There are four adults, time is second half of December 2011, 10 days - 2 weeks long, budget accomodations, and the main interest is NgoroNgoro and Serengeti.

Would you please recommend us a reliable tour company?
What airport to fly to?
Thank you, el_bel.

You mean to say "Tell Koromo, Koromo says Hi" ? You seem like a scout working for that company, K !

I may be wrong but I get the feeling I am looking at a mathematical equation of

Lillac (with 2 Ls, as Koromo emphasized in an earlier post) = Koromo = el_bel

Hi
We were a pax of 12 university students On a five day trip climbing mount Kilimanjaro.(we were on a tight budget)I would recommend www.africanparamountsafaris.com. AIRPORT used -Kilimanjaro international airport with KLM airline.
- pocket friendly
we paid $1000 per person to climb the mountain, for the safari serengeti national park, lake manyara national park and Ngorongoro conservation area.we paid $180 per person .... anything above that is daylight robbery
good luck
nb.Although Tanzanians are not English speakers you will get translators readily available

mwende -

" Although Tanzanians are not English speakers you will get translators readily available "

... since when? English is taught in school and most every guide/driver/tracker speaks English quite well.

As far as the safari @ $180/person (was that for entire safari or per day? how many days?)... well, maybe when there are 12/paxs traveling together; you won't get that if only 2/paxs traveling.

Hello,
we've done a 7 days private safari last year with Duma Explorer. Stacy, the owner, is very professional and created a great tour for us. We did Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro. Tarangire was a real surprise but Serengeti is absolutely amacing! You're going to love it!
