I would ask a few questions first - price how do they compare. How long is the trip and is it camping or lodges or both?

Is it a simple trip or one off the beaten track.

Feb. next year is the best time for the migration. You will see a few million wildebeest calving around the Ndutu area. It is a bit difficult to mention quality without knowing what is involved.

All 4 operators would deliver what is required Good Earth Tours operate out of the US. The other three are based in Arusha.

East African Safaris does very good off the beaten track itineraries. But all will be able to handle your trip.

OK cool

our basic itinerary is roughly

serengeti

seronera valley (+ hot air ballooning )

serengeti and Ndutu area

ngorongoro

etc... etc,,

just realised i was thinking north and south Tanzania rather then north and south Serengeti was having a heart attack thining i was going to be in the wrong place at the wrong time

Thats seems okay with what you have mentioned In would try and fly one way, maybe out to Seronera stay a night or 2 then onot Ndutu then Ngorongoro, Manyara and Tarangire-if you have the time to fit everything in.

Email all operators and eventually youn will get a feel for the one that suits your needs and budget.

Hmmmm!

enuffing. glad you got your locations sorted out. Yes Southern Serengeti around serenera/Ndutu is the place to be in February. I assume this is for 2013 as limited space now for Feb 2012.

I have used Swala and would do so again. A good established local company well able to do the job.
