Hi there,

We are looking to travel in Tanzania for a few days en-route from Cape Town to Zanzibar. Does anyone know how we can travel around the serengeti?

We like to travel independently as much as possible - can we just hire a car in, say, Arusha and drive to the lodges in the serengeti plains or do you have to go with a tour operator?

You can hire a car on self drive basis and drive to the park but this is not advisable unless you know the area around Serengeti really well.
The best option is to hire a car with a driver who will double as your guide. So you don't really need a tour operator.

Kilimanjaro is doable all along the year
But its just not recomended during rain season thats April, May and much little june

Fortunately the rates for the climbing are not seasonal and here is where they range

2 Pax = 1,300$
3 – 5 Pax = 1,180$
6 Pax & Above = 1060$
2 – 5 Pax = 910$
6 Pax = 860$
