I'm looking at a 4 day safari (5 days for flight leaving evening) which includes the Serengeti and Ngorongoro areas.
Since time is a limitation, I've gotten a quote from one of the recommended tour operators with one way flight to the Serengeti, and drive back to Arusha.
Day 1: Fly from Arusha to Serengeti. Game drive and overnight at Seronera Wildlife Lodge. (Optional Lamai Wedge Camp)
Day 2: Full day game drive and overnight at Seronera Wildlife Lodge. (Optional Lamai Wedge Camp)
Day 3: Last day game drive in Serengeti. Packed lunch and en-route to Ngorongoro. Overnight at Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge.
Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater 6 hour game drive. Head to Tarangire in late afternoon and overnight at Tarangire Safari Lodge or SOPA Lodge.
Day 5: Tarangire National Park game drive. Leave for departure at Kilimanjaro airport for evening flight.
Are the accommodations ok? We are looking for moderately price with good value.
Is Serena > SOPA > Seronera? And would it be cheaper to stay at tented camps vs lodges?
Finally, is it recommended to fly to Serengeti and drive back to Arusha, or drive to Serengeti and fly back?Edited: 2:58 am, February 21, 2013
