I can't believe it's almost here. I've been lurking on this site and planning for almost a year. Our itinerary:

Arrive KJO on Thursday and meet private guide and vehicle. We're using KIBO. 3 nights at Kambi ya Tembo, a small tented camp in Sinya Wildlife Conservancy, known for its elephant herds.

then on to Arusha NP area with 2 nights at Kigongoni Lodge.

next 2 nights at Tarangire River Camp

then we spend a few hours at Lake Manyara NP on the way to Gibbs Farm for the night

next 3 nights in the serengeti at a mobile tented camp

than on to Oldupai Gorge and the Ngorongoro Serena with afternoon and morning time in the crater.

we finish at the Ngorongoro Farm House for a night before the drive back to Arusha for our flight beginning the trek home to Miami.

We're in the process of figuring out how much cash to take and where to safely carry wads of small denominations. I have a weekend of packing to do as my DH does not do his own packing. We're spending a couple of days in zurich so we need winter clothing also.

I'm still concerned about the drought. I probably shouldn't have been reading african news online as I now know that Lake Manyara is virtually dried up and "run for your lives", the armyworms are coming! Seriously, I hope some rain comes soon to alleviate the famine and devastation caused by this drought.

i'm bringing a journal and will post a trip report upon my return. thanks to all of you who have so graciously shared information in this forum.
