It depends when and how many people.

For two, at a start, $250-300 per person per night. If travelling solo, add 60-100%

Also, this is a very ambitious itinerary. Some of these places take quite a bit of time to get to. Tanzania is a large country and due to poor roads, one has to consider possibly 60 km/hour. You would spend most of every day getting to the next place.

Someone should pay you to do this in this time frame. With 6 days to do this, I would suggest that you scratch Arusha NP and if you are there in the dry season (July - October) then go to Tarangire rather than Lake Manyara, otherwise scratch Lake Manyara. The gameviewing will be in Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti. And there is no normal pricing, it is dependent on where you will be staying (this could be from $100 to $1000 per person) how many person will be with you, etc. So the normal pricing will be from probably $200 to $1,000 per person per day. That's why this question cannot really be answered.

January is peak season at the highest prices, Many of the lodge/camps have been booked for months if not even 1/yr ago. If anything available, might not be best as to location if you had thought to book months earlier. You might do better with a budget camping safari.

And as important... you're trying to do too much in too short a timeframe.

4 persons in Jan...depends where you stay as the prices of lodges can vary from a few $100's to a thousand.pppn. If a camping trip far cheaper normally.

But you are trying to do too much in such a short time frame leave out ANP and Lake Eyasi for a start and I would just visit Tarangire, Serengeti the Ndutu area and then Ngorongoro, probably in that order if not flying any part of the trip.

As QM mentioned $250-$300 should get you a good trip with a mixture of camps and lodges.

I agree with Noexpert. And consider flying one way to conserve your time.

This will depend with the tour operator or travel agent you are using,Why some operators has got lodges.

Otherwise the price should range from USD$250-600 depending on the number of person traveling with you.
