Tanzania Itinerary Feedback?

All,

As a separate topic, I have finally nailed down some itineraries and prices. Thoughts on this? I am a solo traveler, so I know prices will be higher...Manyara is not high on my list, which is why I would rather trade it for an extra day in the Serengeti.

Includes private driver/vehicle- $6,225- This is my favorite itinerary and operator thus far!
3/11- Fly to Ndutu (Serengeti Safari Camp)
3/12- SSC
3/13- SSC
3/14- SSC
3/15- Drive to Lemala Ngorongoro
3/16- Crater drive and flight to JRO

Private driver/vehicle for first 2 days- $4,960
3/11- Manyara NP- Plantation Lodge
3/12- Ngorongoro- Planatation Lodge
3/13- Fly to Dunia Camp
3/14- Dunia
3/15- Dunia
3/16- Game drives and fly to JRO

Private driver/vehicle- $5,300
3/11- Manyara NP- Lemala Ngorongoro
3/12- Ngorongoro- Drive to Lemala Ndutu Camp
3/13- Lemala Ndutu Camp
3/14- Lemala Ndutu Camp
3/15- Lemala Ewanjan
3/16- Lemala Ewanjan and fly to JRO

Agree that the first is best even if the most expensive.
Question though, on last day
- have crater tour in morning - ok
- then drive back to Arusha/JRO for homebound flight?

It's at least a 5/hr drive, as no flight from crater to JRO. Closest airstrip is at Manyara which is 2.5/hrs away and not sure there is an afternoon flight.

As Serengeti Safari Camp is at Ndutu and no one can be assured exactly where the herds might be any of those 4/days, do ascertain from TO about fees if one or two of those days you wish to cross over into the Southern Serengeti. How much, method of payment.

Good luck!
