What i Learned About Planning a Safari In Tanzania

It took me quite some time with planning Safari in Tanzania. First of all, because there is so much to see and selection among Tanzanian Safari operators was tough and overwhelming. Since i havent known any of them a threat of scams mentioned on Trip advisor made me even more cautious. At the end i booked my safari with reasonable good operator that turned out decent choice. For more info on safaris in Tanzania you can explore the site Safari Junkie which is really helpful source of information for all that are considering planning either safaris in Africa or some other holidays within the East Africa region.

Finally I made a compromise between my budget and wishes and ended up booking private 4 day Safari in Tarangire, Ngorongoro crater, Lake Eyasi and Lake Manyara. Unfortunately Safaris including Serengeti visited were little out of my financial reach, so I am saving it for next time.

Your budget will be crucial when selecting and planning  Safari in Tanzania. This is especially true for level of comfort you wish to have during safari.

To me most important thing was to see animals and enjoy the nature and not luxury tents and lodges therefore i immediately eliminated luxury safari options.

I went for average safari spending nights In very nice  lodge in Karatu that is en route to Northern circuit Safari locations.  I would have breakfast in lodge, then my driver would drive me to different park every day  and the end of the day we returned back to the lodge. In meantime lunch boxes were provided.

From all visited parks on safari in Tanzania I will definitely remember most Tarangire and Ngorongoro crater area.
