Tanzania in March

I will be in Arusha in March for a conference... and then will have 3 days to go on safari in Northern Tanzania from Arusha.

If I only have 2 nights.... which northern park (ie. Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Manyara, Tarngire) would you recommend I visit (in March)

I'd fly early morning to Ndutu airstrip, have guide/vehicle meet you here, spend 1/nt. Next morning, drive to Ngorongoro for afternoon crater visit, 1/nt. Following morning crater visit, then return to Arusha by road.

How long a drive is it from:

a) Arusha to Serengeti?

b) Serengeti to Ngorongoro Crater?

c) Ngorongoro Crater to Arusha?

Assume you plan to have private vehicle/guide, then:

from Arusha, heading West
1) Arusha/Ngorongoro - about 5/hrs
2) Ngorongoro to Ndutu area - about 2-2.5/hrs
3) Farther into Serengeti - can be another 2-3/hrs

from Serengeti, heading East
1) From Central Serengeti, drive to Arusha can be 9-10/hrs.
2) From Ndutu, drive is about 8/hrs.

Always depends on road conditions; but for potty stops, can't really afford to stop game viewing along the way.

As the herds likely to still be in Ndutu, and now with flights to this airstrip, flight departs Arusha about 8am and by 9:15am should be at Ndutu; 9:30am to Central Serengeti... you'll have a full day for game viewing.

The following morning you can have a game drive in Ndutu then head to Ngoro in time for afternoon crater visit; another next morning (if you wish) before return drive (5/hrs) to Arusha.
