I am a solo traveller, travelling north from Dar es Salaam to do a day-trip to the first hut on Kilimanjaro on August 19th. After that I am hoping to visit the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara (can drop Lake Manyara from itinerary if necessary). My preferred option for this would be to join a tour group. I have found lots of tour/safari operators that go to these places but due to time and budget constraints, I cannot seem to find an option that suits.
I must be back in Arusha on the 23rd in order to make it to my next destination and yes, I know I'm pushing it but I only have a budget of approx 900USD.
Any advice for a desperate traveller???
Also, is it allowed/safe to self drive and would this be cheaper?
