Hi everyone, we are finalizing our Safari itinerary for our first time ever in Africa and doing a Safari. We are a family of four, 2 adults, and my 2 kids, which at the time of our trip will be 9 and 8 or 10 and 9 depending on dates we decide on. Here is our plan and we are trying to figure out whether to add the cultural leg of the trip to Lake Eyasi with the Tribesmen or extend ourselves instead to the North of Serengeti to see possibly the migration (which I heard is never guaranteed). Thoughts? Here is the proposed itinerary 7 days and 6 nights
1. Tarangie 1 night
2. Lake Manyara 1 night
3. Serengeti central 1 night
4. Serengeti Central - 1 night
5. Ngorongoro 1 night
6. Lake Eyasi (end here) last night
If we do the Wildebeest I suspect due to time and money we would have to skip Lake Eyasi and spend 1 extra night but in another part of the Serengeti. Which I am told to see the migration is far, and may or may not require a plane, which I do not want to do. I prefer all by land. Is this unrealistic, too much driving for 1 day to see the migration in the other part of the Serengeti. Am I truly missing out if I skip the tribesmen in Lake Eyasi?
