Tanzania safari in Sept.- campsite and operator comparison

Hey guys,

we are going to Tanzania in September and want to get a wildlife, landscape and camping experience. After a thorough search, we cut it to 2 itinareries for 5 days budget safari. We would like to stay in the park and go in the ngorongoro crater.

1) What to do you think of the campsites listed below? Should we suggest different campsites?

2) Have you heard anything about these safari operators? Bright African Safari and Sunny Safari?

Option 1: Sunny Safaris Ltd $1050 (2 people)

Day 1: 08h30, P/up from residence/hotel in Arusha and depart for Tarangire, lunch and gamedrive in Tarangire National Park, drive to Lake Manyara, Taro Sero Campsite.

Day 4: Early morning gamedrive in Serengeti National Park, brunch and depart for Ngorongoro Crater Rim, en-route gamedrive, dinner and overnight, Simba Campsite.

Day 5: After breakfast descend to the Crater floor for gamedrive, lunch at hippo pool picnic site, ascend to the rim and departure for Arusha End of Services.

Option 2: Bright African Safari $1150 for 2 people

Day 1: Breakfast before drive to Tarangire park crossing maassai steppe. Sunset & evening game drive at Tarangire park -wild palm campsite

RaNa24, thanks for reporting back and telling us you had such a great time. We hope that when you have sorted through some of those photos, you will share a few more details and some pics. As you will find, many of us wish to return but have to be satisfied with everyone else's trip reports and photos.
