safari to Kenya/Tanzania

I am planning our first safari to Kenya and Tanzania for August 2006. We are family of 4 (with two older teenagers) and are interested in seeing the migration through the Serengeti and the Masai Mara. May also a few days at Mt Kilimanjaro. So far, I have found a couple of tour operators that are reasonable. is our top choice so far. Any experience with this group? or names of other operators? Also, what about the Mara Serena Safari Lodge, Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge, Ngorongoro Serena Lodge?

hi cdk

@ august is indeed migration time in Mara.
@ Serena is a very good lodge (& good location close to a river CROSSING )
however, many fodorites prefer more intimate camps - tents (luxury) but more expensive ... - read other articles
@ operators - there r some recommended on this forum - click on "search"
@ tip: if u decide on Serena - go to their homepage & make reservations directly. (If fully booked - an operator is needed. This August may well be fully booked !!)

@@@ best tip: read other threads or search & u'll get answers fast

We are going in August. In early February things were getting booked up.

We booked with Benjamin at Southern Cross. Also very competitive were Sandi at African Serendipity (a Fodorite) and Serah at Eastern and Southern.

Staying at all Serena properties was very inexpensive (relatively) but availability likely to be an issue.

good luck
