Help with itinerary for a first time visitor to Africa, please!

Hi all,

I have been reading these posts for quite some time and they have been so helpful! I posted an itinerary a while back but didn't get much feedback so I'm trying again now that I have something more specific. This is from Access2Tanzania for 2 people in June 2009:

Day 1: Arrive in Arusha. Karama lodge overnight
Day 2-4: Tarangire. Whistling Thorn Camp
Day 5-6: Lake Manyara/Ngorongoro. Bougainvillea Safari Lodge
Day 7-8: Serengeti. Serengeti Tented Camp
Day 9-10: Serengeti. Serengeti Sopa

This is priced at 4300 pp (estimating prices for 2009) which includes a hot air balloon safari and flight back to Arusha.

I would love some feedback on price, choice of accomodations, and any opinions in general. Thanks!

--Barbra

There are some fairly negative reviews of Serengeti Tented Camp on the Tripadvisor TZ forum http://tinyurl.com/3yna9s

I think it was your post I read about dealing with the suspense. I was so glad someone else was going through it so far ahead of time!

On another noted, based on negative feedback about the Serengeti Tented Lodge, I have looked up both Mbuzi Mawe and Kirurumu Serengeti Tented Camps. They are somewhat more expensive, although I'm not sure how much more. But if they were great, I would be willing to think about it...

Thanks! --Barbra

What do people think about the Kirurumu Serengeti Tented Camp? It seems I can only find feedback on the Kirurumu Camp at Lake Manyara. Should I assume the quality is similar?

Thanks! --Barbra

Kirurumu Serengeti is more expensive than Manyara.
