ok- I have gotten some advice from some of you experts, but thought I would post for others to comment. Planning our first Tanzania trip for March 2014 ( know a long ways off!). Wife and 2 daughters (will be 12 and 14 when we go). We love animals and scenery and photography has become their hobby. Been to southern africa before (SA and Namibia). Traveling last 2 weeks in march.
Sat- arrive KLM at JRO- overnight in Arusha
Sun- shop, acclimate, arusha NP- overnight in Arusha
Monday- to Tarangire
Wed- to Ngorongoro Crater overnight at rim
Thurs- down to crater and then to Ndutu for overnight
Sunday- to central serengeti
Monday- central serengeti
Tuesday- central serengeti
Wednesday- to manyara and overnight manyara
Thursday- overnight manyara
Friday to Arusha/JRO and fly out
We are not interested in a beach vacation (we do those regularly).
I have the option of possibly taking out the third night at Ndutu and/or serengeti as well as the second night at Manyara. We could add another location, but aren't too keen on one night stands or being rushed.
Any advice would be appreciated!
