I have been monitoring this forum for months and most of my questions has been answered. There are, however a few things where the experts can assist:
1. Is the Serengeti safari doable from west, starting from Mwanza, ending in Arusha?
How long drive to central Serengeti, how are the road conditions?
Are there OP's operating from Mwanza, or is the vehicle/guide sent from Arusha on my account?
2. If booking private safari, which vehicle/guide is used when staying in camps/lodges, my private one or the one arranged by camp/lodge.
3. and then specific question on luggage: are medium size hard-sided suitcases at all possible on private safari, including possible light aircarft flights (we are on a longer tour and duffle bags not preferred)
The plan is to do this in Nov/Dec 2012
many thanks in advance
