Dar Es Salaam to Serengeti- how to get there

We will be in Dar Es Salaam in early April, 5 days on business

And we are thinking of traveling to Serengeti National Park to stay for 2 nights.

Don't have much time, is there a quick way to get there?

How long does it take?

By the way, does it make sense going there for 2 nights?

Quick way would be to fly. From DAR via arusha with Coastal. www.coastal.cc

the flight will take around three hours +/- any connection time in Arusha.

If it is all the time you have got then it makes sense. Otherwise not.

You might want to consider one of the other closer parks to Dar es Salaam. With limited time you are liimiting yourself on what you will be able to see once there. The best thing, if you do this, is to contact a safari operator and have this arranged for you, you will need a vehicle after getting there to take you to where the animals ae located (the Serengeti is larger than some small countries) and you will want to fly into there at the right place for where the animals are located in April, you will need to have an accommodation booked for a place to stay, and a driver/guide for the vehicle to know where the animals are located specifically.

If you go to the Tanzania forum you will see a list of Top Questions about Tz, on the right side of the web page, look these over and you will get an idea of how to approach this, look at the 4th Q down to find a list of safari operators.
