Looking at traveling to Kenya, Tanzania, and Zanzibar Sept 2013. Any suggestions for a tour /travel company we could contact to make our arrangements? Of course, we are on a budget, but want the best know company we can afford. thanks for any suggestions.

Welcome to the forum, Kamolly. Many of us have had awesome trips with various safari companies. Here's a link to Lynda's trip report index where you can find the names of many of these and read trip reports for Tanzania/Kenya:

Have fun with the planning, and ask lots of questions.

Wow - that is alot of great information. Thank you! I was looking at a trip with Alki tours in Seattle. Money is an issue, so this looked good, although it does not have everything.

April 26-May 6, 2013

$3699. per person
includes round trip air, air taxes, fees and fuel surcharge, transfers
price bases on cash payment

what about this time of yr? see migration?
have not heard of these places, Samburu Reserve was taken off my orig. list
may add on Tanzania - more costs
does not include any Zanzibar

4/26-4/27/13 Seattle to Nairobi

How does this look?

From my reseach in 2005, I was originally looking at:

updated 6-21-05 for September

Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge
Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge
Ngorongoro Serena Lodge

Tarangire Nat Park 2-3 days

Tarangire River Camp
Mawe Niga
Zanzibar- 3 days
Breezes Beach Club
Matembwe Bungalows
Matembwe Beach
Pongwe Beach Hotel

Masai Mara Nat Reserve 2-3 days
Little Govenor

what is your opinion of these two different itineraries?

is the first one a GREAT deal for what i will be seeing? or is it more than worth it too pay alot more for more like the second itinerary?

thanks for any input.
