Hi Thank you for your time and patience to answer my questions in advance. My husband and I are planning to travel Serengeti from June 27 to July 4, 2017 (the time is adjustable), including flight tickets from and back to New York, our budgets are around $6000pp. 1. Should we do Serengeti only or include Tarangire and Ngorongoro as well? What special sceneries and animals we would expect to see in Tarangire and Ngorongoro but not in Serengeti? 2. If we only visiting Serengeti, how do you suggest we plan our trip? Do you mind provide some itineraries? We do prefer travelling with a private guider and is there any chance we can stay in Singita for last 1 or 2 nights? What’s the cost of adding a Balloon Safari? 3. How can we book flights between Arusha and Sasakwa, and how much do they cost? Which website do you suggest to use? Looking forward to hearing back from you soon. Thank you again!
