It's been different daily depending on where located. Believe I read the other day (maybe on TA) of a traveler out on the Serengeti with their guide who was constantly watching the skies... clouds pop up out of nowhere ... at a point where he just said "it's gonna storm and we're outta here." And they hauled out of there, beating many others who didn't move as quickly getting caught in the downpour.

Have you checked with your tour operator or vehicle rental company? They're sure closer to the situation.

Sandi's suggestion is a good one - get SD in the UK to check with the local ground operators in Arusha. We found the husband and wife team there (Liz and Mike - please say "hi" for us), who will no doubt meet you at the airport and take you to their lovely home for tea, extremely helpful. At the same time, get SD to check the cost of diesel for you, so that you may ensure that you have enough cash. CR

Hopefully, you will be able to reach them all. The road into the Tarangire campsite may be a wee bit of a challenge - it was very rough when we there in the dry season - but it is a lovely site, with several beautiful old baobabs and lots of elephants and zebras. I hope the resident bushbaby is still there - it was great fun watching its enormous eyes bounce around the trees at night. There were also lions nearby when we were there, so take care at night. I do envy you your trip! CR
