Just came back from a great 10 days safari leaving from Dar es Salaam and going to the Northern circuit through Bagamoyo, Saadani, Pangane and Tanga. The news are on the transport me and other 14 friends used to do it. We rent an overland truck in Dar and camping equipment from a new tanzanian company for Overland truck rental -Lakeland Africa-. We were looking for self driven cars but finally we found out the possibility of travelling all together. We saved money and really enjoyed the experience. The truck was comfortable and the crew -driver, chef and guide- did a great job. It is really a great experience to come into the national parks on board an open truck. For game drive is perfect and is allowed in all NP except in Ngorongoro crater. We paid about 600 USD per day including camping equipment -40USD per person for transport and camping.
