Looking for travel partners for a Serengeti Safari Tour in April  (14 Answers)

Hi!

We are two students from Sweden planning on doing a safari tour in Serengeti and the Ngorogoro crater for 5-6 days starting around 10-12th of April 2014. We are looking for travel partners for this safari tour, since it is cheaper the more you go on the safari. We have started looking at different tour operators but have not decided on a specific one yet and are open for suggestions on operators.

Please let us know if anyone is interested in joining us for this amazing trip!
Best,
Melinda

Serenteti National Park & Kilimanjaro National Park  (8 Answers)

Hi, I'm planning to go to Serengeti and Mount Kilimajarao in July. Is this a good season to go to see a lot of animals? Is it possible to travel there and book the sapharies with local companies? or it is better to arrange everything before travelling there. I'm traveling from Canada and I want to go on a low budget trip. Please advise. Thank you.

Need help with accomodation during safari  (7 Answers)

Hi,

Me and a friend are 2 women aged 30, traveling to a safari with Sabastian from . Initially we booked 4 nights in tents, camp sites, but recently I've been warned by quite a few people by possible insects and parasites and everybody are warmly recommending to stay in something that is not a tent.
Sabastian told us that the next option is 190USD per night per person, considering that we have 4 nights there, it sounds like an astronomic amount...

Any suggestions?

Thank you,
Dina

Serengeti super wildlife is there in mid-September?  (9 Answers)

Hi there!
I'll be in Tanzania mid-September, and I'm trying to decide to visit Serengeti or not (cost-wise), since much of the wildlife usually is suposed to have migrated to Masai Mara, if I got it right.
I'll be travelling to Ngorongoro and Mikumi anyway, and I'm wondering if it is sensible to skip the extra cost of booking Serengeti, if it is not the right time for good game viewing.
Any opinions or experiences, please?
Many thanks!
Nikolas

Possible to see the wildebeest migration from Tanzania  (6 Answers)

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to see the wildebeest migration crossing the Mara river from the Tanzania side? My family and I living in Jo'burg want to take advantage of the upcoming long weekend in August and go see this nature's marvel. Problem is flying to Kenya is almost impossible (most flights are fully booked or outrageously expensive, so apparently a good option would be flying to Dar es Salam, Tanzania. But not sure how to take it from there. Any advice?

self drive trip of Serengeti  (6 Answers)

We are planning to travel with our daughter and partner in March 2010 spending 4 or 5 days driving from Arusha to Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti NP. We have a toyota landcruiser 4X4 equipped with tents and all camping equipment. Is it safe for us to do this without a guide and are there sufficient public camping grounds for us to stay in the park. I believe the South East is good at this time of year.Is it too cold to camp at Simba campsite?Would we be better to base ourselves at Seronera campsite? I have heard that Rhino Lodge would be a good budget lodge option if the tent is not suitable. Can anyone advise please?

Serengeti, Eyasi  (5 Answers)

I plan a travel to Tanzania next year(January-March) and wonder if it is possible and not insensible to make a trip that starts in Serengeti, maybe Ndutu and after a few days move towards "hadza territory" close to Lake Eyasi. Or would it maybe be better to start such a trip in Lake Manyara National Park. Could any of the routes be combined with trekking? (I guess I only have a short week.)

When to go??  (8 Answers)

Hi all,

I am planning to go on an African safari next year. I haven't booked one yet, but I was thinking of going around June. What is the wildlife status in the park at this time? I was hoping to catch the migration and from what I've been reading it seems that the herds should be moving north through the park towards the masai mara at this time. Is this correct?

Essentially I am looking for advice on when to go(I'm still pretty flexible)and which park is better for wildlife viewing and when.

Thank you for all input!

Serengeti with 3 kids in mid January-mid Feb  (5 Answers)

We are leaving for an around the world trip with our 3 kids, ages 14,12 and 5. We will spend 6 weeks in kenya and tanzania. I have this gut feeling that the kids are going to hate "driving around all day looking for animals' We live near Yellowstone National Park and hear the same lament yearly. In an ideal situation we would stay at a nice lodge, with a fun pool, where the animals are nearby and there are other children to play with. Am i dreaming? Also, where are the animals this time of year. If i mess this safari gig up, I will have a high price to pay with unhappy children and a disappointed husband. The country seems so vast and the options so many.
