serengeti in august - looking for best local agency for authentic tour

by smarion Online Now Feb 5, 2012 at 10:15 AM

ciao to all,
we are a group of 3 planning to go to the serengeti for the great migration in august 2012. we are looking for an authentic experience, not seeking luxury or "standardized" tours. We would like to contact a local agency that can provide not only a personalized tour but also at the same time that guarantees THE BEST GUIDES. We have just got back from Galapagos and Amazonas in Ecuador and the guides indeed made the difference to us.

thanks for any hint!
Mary

    Hi
    We used Base Camp Tanzania.They came highly recommended by Trip Advisor and for a good price. It was the best trip ever. Check out my pages.
    Good luck

    I would suggest Bamba tours :http://bambatours.com/why-bamba/. i used them for a 5 day trip to Serengeti, ngorongoro and lake manyara. it's a small safari company but the guides where very experienced and full of knowledge. I stayed at the hostel they run in Moshi, which is nice and clean. They were a lot of other volunteers there, so i had a good coffee with with a few of them. i did a camping safari and joined another group which made my trip cheaper.You can have a luxury safari but i went for the budget one. we saw the Serengeti migration, it was just amazing.

    Only advise is to avoid Great Zone Africa, we have never seen the Serengeti...
    Enjoy, it's a beautiful country !

    Hey Mary, i just came from Tanzania with my family and had a wonderful experience down there. Serengeti was beautiful the way i never expected, plenty of wildlife but my guide said it depend on seasons because sometime of the year it is very dry and most of the migratory animals are in masai mara. Just try Afroriginal tours can advise you better.
    I had a personal touch with this guys for sure.
    Good luck for your trip arrangements
