My friend and I, both 23 from South Africa, will be backpacking in Kenya, Tanzania and Malawi in June. We are hoping to do a 2/3 day camping safari to the Serengeti and Ngorogoro Crater around the 17th – 25th of June, leaving either from Arusha or Moshi. According to posts on Trip Advisor, it’s probably best to round up a bigger group of people for a more affordable safari. Is it likely that we will be able to find like-minded travellers in either of these cities once we’re there, or would you suggest we mail several operators about fitting us into one of their groups? If so, which operators are best for those on a budget? Also, what is the lowest probable rate pppd we can hope for with a group of 5 or so?
