So in late January, three of us are going on a Safari for a little over than 2 weeks.
Me = 30
Brother = 25
Mother = 57
Now I posted something similiar to this post a while back but at the time I didn't know as much and I asked the wrong questions. So instead of bumping an old topic and posting my questions at the end of the tread - I figured it would work better if I posted a new topic (so sorry about this).
I read Fodor's Guide + currently reading Bradt - I didn't find much info so now I'm posting hoping for feedback.
Basically - besides game drives, I do want to ad a night game drive, canoeing and POSSIBLY some walking.
1- Night Game Drive - Tarangire vs Lake Manyara
I couldn't find much info on these in the books. Lake Manyara night drive seems newer and Tarangire is recommending during the wet months (not the month I'm going at - January). Also only specific lodges/companies run these... that's about all I found out. Any advice and/or thoughts on which is better?
2- Canoeing - Lake Babati vs Arusha National Park vs Lake Manyara
I would like to do two "canoeing safaris" - I like Lake Babati and Arusha National Park for these. But the books keep saying to not "dismiss Lake Manyara" - thoughts?
3- "Walking Safaris"
Not referring to ones that consume a full day/days - and no hike since I assume I'd be very tired. Just looking for maybe a two hour walk or something to see other things/stretch legs. I'm a little iffy on these. Pretty much everywhere seems to provide these... but frankly I'm not sold the descriptions I'm reading. Is it worth it to add one or two? Also where/which would you recommend?
I hope these questions aren't repetitive
