Serengeti, Lake Manayara & Ngorongoro Safari experience within budget.
Overall rating
5/5

It wasn't the way we had envisaged going on safari when we originally decided to go, but a camping safari was definitely the best we have experienced to date. Previously we have stayed at lodges in safari parks, and they have been very good. This time we were working to a budget and had to go during peak times so we had to look for alternatives. We booked a package directly with the tour operator based in Arusha and gave them details of what we wanted to see and do, they arranged everything: pick-up at the coach station, car, driver, cook, sleeping bags, tent, food. The tour guide/driver knew exactly which camping sites to stay at, the amount ot time needed to view the wildlife and also specifics about the wildlife. This allowed us plenty of time to see and enjoy the beautiful national parks (Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro and Serengeti). Once you arrive in Arusha it takes a couple of hours to get to Lake Mayara and the road is good. Getting to Ngorongoro takes a further 3 hours, but to get to Serengeti you have to go through Ngorongoro and it takes a good few hours, and be prepared for a rough ride, as the road is not smooth. But the whole experience was fantastic. Apart from the amazing wildlife the experience of staying in tented camps was graet. One night was spent in the middle of the Serengeti, where we could hear wildlife around at night and when we woke up we were a facing a glorious sunrise and giraffes and zebra roaming within a few hundred metres. Another night was a freezing cold night at the top of Ngorongoro Crater, but where you could see the stars so clearly that you felt you could touch them. Generally, the washroom facilities in these camps weren't great but the were usable. And having a cook travelling with us was great, he provided breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. All-in-all this was a great adventure holiday for the family (2 adults and 2 boys) which we will never forget and which will provide us with stories to tell.

Amazing experience
Overall rating
5/5

I found NCA a magnificent park. Unique scenary, wild animals basically everywhere and easily to spot and see while they e.g. move, drink from the lake, hunt, rest.
1/2 days in ngorongoro is in my opinion enough as the crater is not that big. Accomodation is somewhat expensive and one may consider staying in one of the villages just outisde the NCA for good accomodation at molre reasonable prices. A trek on the Empakai crater possibly walking , guided by a masai, as far as lake natron is an amazing experience.

Review about Arusha National Park by bruges00
Overall rating
4/5

Quite different from other parks. Sligthly less frequent to see the big animals which can be more frequently seen in the other parks of northerm tanzania, but great vegetation, lush and green. Nice experience that of canoeing on one odf the many lakes in the park. Not many options for accomodation. Easily reachable from Arusha. I'd consider to include a short (e.g. 2 days) visit to this park when staying for a safari of at least 10 days.

Review about Lake Manyara National Park by bruges00
Overall rating
4/5

Great scenaries around the lake. Cats, giraffes and elephants easily spotted while they go to the lake to drink at evening or inside the vegetation on the way to the lake. Rich also of hippos, flamingos and many other species of birds. Sunset is great moment to go, lovely colours on the horizon. On the way to the park, one may think to make a stop in the Mtowambu village: Very interesting the guided tour aroiund the village, organised by local people and with provents going to local population. One day is in my view enough.

Review about Serengeti National Park by bruges00
Overall rating
5/5

Its fame is well deserved. Absolutely magnificent. Huge and with different scenaries and types of natural environments. The area near Seronera is especially beautiful and full of wild animals. Pity that at times it may be slightly crowded (too many jeeps around). The area near Lobo is somewhat less spectacular and less rich of animals. Best experience for me was spending some nights in a tented camp. 2/3 days in serengeti are a must.

Great to see especially baobabs and elephants, among others. Lovely scenaries along the river. Quite impressive some accomodations inside the park, because of the marvellous locations where they have been built. I'd stay not less than 2 days.
