We are looking to plan a Northern Circuit safari in the last 2 weeks of May next year. I have been corresponding with a few tour companies, but because of budget and time restrictions we may have to cut out either Tarangire or Manyara. I initially felt my preference would be Tarangire because of the elephants but one tour company in particular has mentioned that Manyara would be a better choice over Tarangire because apparently Tarangire can flood at times during the rains and has taller grassy areas which make game viewing more unpleasant and challenging. Oh, and apparently prey move towards Manyara at this time. Can anyone speak about their own personal experience on this? Thanks!
