Name 4 Day Safari to Serengeti, Ngorongoro, and Lake Manyara

we (couple, 27 and 31, ger and mex) are planning to do a safari trip (4days, 3nights) from Arusha (or Moshi) to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara from August 26 - 29. To save costs we are looking for 2-3 nice and easy-going people to share the car with.

We are planning to do the safari with "African Scenic Safaris" and all information can be found on their website: http://www.africanscenicsafaris.com/safari.html

You can also contact them directly if you would like to join.

Costs:
On the basis of 5 people the trip would cost 600UDS pp, if we were only 4 it would be 660USD pp. This includes pretty much everything you'll need during those days (camping, meals, transport and game drives).

Itinerary:
Day 1 - Lake Manyara
This morning you will depart for Lake Manyara National Park. Spend the afternoon on a game drive of this park, described as one of the hidden gems of Tanzania. This park is famous for its tree climbing lions and large herds of elephant.
Overnight at Lake Manyara

Day 2 - Serengeti
After breakfast drive to one of the most famous game parks in Africa, the Serengeti. Here is home to millions of wilderbeest during the migration and over the huge flat plains you are likely to find lion, cheetah, leopard, elephant, giraffe, zebra, hyena and many other small predators. All afternoon will be spent on game drive before enjoying dinner and the experience of sleeping in the middle of the Serengeti.
Overnight in Seronera (the centre of the Serengeti)

Day 3 - Serengeti/Ngorongoro CraterAn early morning start in the Serengeti to try and find cats before they retreat away from the blazing sun during the day. After a few hours game drive in the Serengeti drive to the Ngorongoro Crater.
Overnight camp at the rooftop of the crater, providing amazing views.

Day 4 - Ngorongoro CraterThis morning you will descend into the Ngorongoro Crater - a wonderful haven for wildlife. Ngorongoro is unique in that almost all the wildlife live within the crater walls hence you have the opportunity to find game easily. Rhino, in particular, can be seen regularly as well as prides of lion and other predators like cheetah. Enjoy lunch by the hippo pond before beginning your drive back to Arusha/Moshi.
