Based on my read in TripAdvisor, the recommended average cost per person per day is about US$350. What are the accommodations in this price range? (Serena or Sopa?)
I have a quote from Bush 2 Beach which included places from Lemala (Serengeti & Ngorongoro), Asilia’s Oliver’s and Sayari, Onsea House in Arusha, Ndarakwai Camp, Kirurumu, and Plantation Lodge. The itinerary averages to $540. BTW, this is a 17-day for September 2011.
Good Earth Tours 8-day itinerary averages to $625, at places like Lemala and Migration Camp. http://www.goodearthtours.com/Tanzania/Itineraries/T1Tanzania_Exclusive.html
Both these are guided road tour.
What is a good yardstick to determine a reasonable price, even at a “luxury” camp? Number of tents/lodges? The rack rate? I have used www.tanzaniaodyssey.com “paw” rating and their review as a reference. Any other help is greatly appreciated.
