I now have a flight to Nairobi in November and have about 12 days in which to spend some time in the Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Usumbara mountains, and a few days on Zanzibar hopefully.

This may be a question that opens me up for loads of spam - BUT ..... Does anyone have any recommendations on tour operators or travel companies that could take two of us round the area?

I know there is an overland route from Nairobi to Dar es Salaam taking in Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Arusha and Usumbara along the way but I don't know if it's better to do this, or fly to Arusha and do a round trip from there?

You could tavel via the isibania boarder and then enter Serengeti, it is a lot easier and quicker to either fly from Nairobi to Kilimanjaro airport or the take the shuttle cost circa $30 pp drive time circa 5 hours.
Departure time 08:00 & 14:00 from either, all main hotels in Nairobi town or direct from the airport.
Then do your safari and then Usambara independently, after which a short bus ride to Dar Es Salaam.

Thanks for the updates, I'll consider getting the safari element seperately from Zanzibar & mountains and see where that takes me!

I can seriously recommend Leopard Tours.
They have trips from several days to several weeks, from camping to luxurious. I did a midrange trip with them and was very pleased with them. Good guides (ask for Paul if you can) and they do everything to make your trip one of a lifetime!

I'm just back from Kenya and here's the good news.... THE PRICE OF A TOURIS VISA HAS JUST GONE DOWN IN PRICE FROM $50 TO $25... US that is.
Every bit helps.
You could try STAR TRAVEL in Nairobi, Standard St. I use them all the time and find them really good and inexpensive. Ask for Roselynne, tell her Brendan from Ireland sent you.
