Hi! I am planning a trip for my husband and I to Tanzania during Feb 2011. We both have never been there, so we need some advice. =)
I'm using Access 2 Tanzania, and Karen seems really sweet.
We arrive and our first trip is to Arusha N.P. Next we go to Lake Manyara. How is this comparable to Tangire NP? Can we do both in one day or we need two days? Or is just one of them ok? We then go to the Ngorongoro Crater Game drive for one day. Next day she has us down for the Olmoti Crater hike/Conservation area. Has anyone does this hike? Is it worth it or can we take it off the trip? The day after, we are still in the crater area/olduvai gorge and move to the serengeti(Ndutu area) to see the migration, in the migration tent camps, which i read are pretty awesome. The next 2 days are here in the serengeti, and then we move to a different campsite within the seregeti for another 2 days. I would like to add in somewhere a trip to the village or hospital area( I'm a physician).
Anything you think we can take out? or we should add in? I'm not sure I need 2.5 days in the ngorongoro crater area....and how worth it the hike and all is...we have one day for a game drive in the crater, i thought that was enough. Also how is Dar es salaam? is it worth adding onto the trip? Thanks!
