We have the following itinerary for this coming February 2017
Arrive Kiliminjaro Airport 8:30pm
1 night at Treetops Lodge in Arusha
3 nights Serian Kusini
4 nights Serian Kassekio (Serengeti South)
Fly out 9:45pm from Kilimanjaro on the final day
we have been presented with the option of driving from the southern serengeti to the Ngorogoro crater as a day trip. Has anyone done this and then continued on to Arusha? It certainly would make for a really long day given that we would fly out late that night. How long is the ride to and from the crater?
One thought is we could get a day room in Arusha to shower and have dinner on the tail end of the trip before heading to the airport for our late flight.
this will be our 3rd trip to east africa but we have never made it to the crater. We are very aware of the negative aspects of it (the crowds etc..) but we do have some desire to witness one of the natural wonders of the world.
We very much appreciate opinions and any data on distances/times.
