Spatial orientation is important to me, so pl. help me evaluate if the accommodations being suggested to me make good sense for my plans. I'm considering flying in or out of Kogatende for my 5-6 day safari in late Oct. Two nights at the Kogatende end of the itinerary are at the same camp/lodge (I'll call them K2). After consulting various sources incl. google maps, I've concluded that Kogatende airstrip is somewhere between Sayari Camp and Singita Mara River Tented Camp on this map -
Where approx. are the following?
* Nasikia Luxury Camp
* Serengeti North Wilderness Tented Camp
* Serengeti Savannah Camp
On the above map, what accommodation would be too far out for K2, given the time to/from Kogatende one day, and the connection to Central Serengeti on another? Does the Lobo area make any sense for K2 if I were to fly in or fly out? It has been suggested by some TOs for itineraries for both directions. It doesn't seem "north enough" to me, given that I'll be spending to fly to/from Kogatende, by which I mean that I don't want to spend a considerable time just between Kog and K2 without actually seeing anything much in northern Serengeti. I know the locations of other lodgings on my proposed itineraries except the K2.
I don't know if I am making any sense to anyone here. It appears that I am either not exactly able to convey my concern to the TOs or treading where I should not as I'm met with silence on Qs regarding distances, directions. Am I over analyzing? I'm not wired to be completely hakuna matata without knowing what I'm letting myself in for, definitely not with these kinds of $$$s involved.
I am quite taken aback by the photos of some of these places. All that (luxury, IMO) in the middle of the wilderness? Seems like it's either that or basic camp with tent and cook. :(
