One of the TOs proposed itineraries starts with flying from Killi airport(where we fly into) to Mwanza to start our 10 night tour exploring Mwanza and Lake Victoria. After spending a day at Lake Victoria, we head to the Serengeti.
The rest of our tour will cover the Serengeti, Lake Natron, the Crater, Lake Manyara and Tarangire, We will finish our safari in Arusha.
I am not sold on flying to Mwanza and visiting lake Victoria. Is this area worth seeing and worth the extra cost of a plane ticket?
This will be our first safari in Tanzania and although we want to see as much wildlife as possible, we are not huge birders; It is the big mammals that interest us the most. Also, we are on a limited budget, between 200-300 USD per person per day..
Please share your thoughts with me, any input will be greatly appreciated :)
