December Serengeti Itinerary

I'm planning on a safari trip in early December to the northern circuit. Since we are really close to December already, we urgently need to finalize our trip. However, I'm scratching my head a little bit about the Serengeti portion.

We intend to stay 7 nights in the Serengeti/Ndutu area before we flight out from either central or northern Serengeti. My issue is how to properly allocate our 7 nights. I initially thought we would just do 4 days in Ndutu and 3 days Seronera since the migration will likely be down there during that time of the year. However, I then read some people saying northern Serengeti has different terrains and it's great all year around. It should not be missed regardless. I then changed our itinerary to 3 days in Ndutu, 2 days in Seronera and 2 days in northern Serengeti.

Many tour operators are telling me it's not worth it to drive to northern Serengeti for an early December trip and I should stay down south/central my entire time while a couple of others are telling me northern Serengeti (where Sayari is) is great regardless.

This is a very expensive and propbably a once a life time trip for us. We really want to get it right. I sincerely ask you guys who have been to northern Serengeti in early December to help me out here.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
