Thanks Liz! That's what I needed to hear.

Wouldn't that be wonderful, Liz? And little a tax deduction on top? Would go a long way towards funding some of these trips
Very much enjoyed your report & pics. I'm in the process of trying to organize a Serengeti mobile for July 2011, so your report was particularly welcome.
Thanks.

What a great report!
Goes on my wish list.
Was Tanzania very hot in February? Was it in the 80s during the day, or did it climb into the 90s or above?

Wow - nice to see this pop up!

We were there in late January and it was never higher than the 80s - it might have been a bit warmer in the crater but not high in humidity. We didn't have AC in the truck and didn't need it.

Night was cool - we had hot water bottles in our beds.

We are probably going to follow you to Africa in a couple of years, so I'm bookmarking this report. It's my brother-in-law's dream trip and hubby and I will tag along. But I'll do the planning or rather, copy what Liz did, relax, and enjoy! (like we did for Egypt with Ahmed).

Cheers, and happy travels!

Hi Elizabeth, I read your report some while back, and I don't remember how you got back to Arusha at the end of Tanzania safari. Did you fly or drive all the way across the plain. what do you think about the drive? I am unsure of this option, but if i choose fly, i will have to pay for the relocation of vehicle as much as the airfare.

daisyznite - we flew from Ndutu to Arusha although we should have just driven back with our driver as we were having so much fun! Virtually the whole drive is a game drive of sorts, and we loved our guide so much would rather have spent the time with him.

Wow, what a really great report and fantastic photos!
I plan on going in Feb 2013 and hopefully I will have half the viewing luck that you had. Thanks to your report, I will be better prepared even though I will be camping for at least part of it. Obviously, you spent lots of time composing your report to ensure it was 'just right'. Unfortunately, it was so well done that I am excited now and just want to be on safari, now! and forget about the planning that has to be done first!!
