Thanks all for the amazingly information in this forum. I am able to come up with following high level itinerary. We are a couple planning a safari end of february. We are on a budget, our aim is to enjoy photographing the animals and the scenery. Not exactly to rush and visit all the parks in northern tanzania.
Kindly, give me feedback or suggession to cut cost. I have not decided a specific operator, I got mail from Simon from EastCo, but after reading the reviews here i am not in the favor of picking the company.
