Hello Trip Advisors,
My girlfriend and I are taking almost 2 weeks at the beginning of July to do the Northern Tanzanian Circuit of parks. I was wondering if anyone had comprised their dream itinerary, suitable for a young couple on private safari. We'd love to see a lot of game and hope to walk a little too as we're both hikers of sorts.
I've been in contact with many of the local operators in Arusha and have gotten quotes and itineraries, all seem to include Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Lk Manyara, & Tarangire. With accomodations ranging from all lodges (mostly Sopa) to some camping, I've gotten quotes from $2500 to $4000 pp.
Besides any itinerary suggestions, I'd love to know if anyone can recommend good places to camp for a few nights, or if you've had any familiarity with the Sopa Lodges. One tour operator has included a night at Lake Eyasi, wondering if that's worth it in your opinion.
Thanks a lot for any help you can give, these forums are invaluable and I really appreciate the advice.
