How to get to four season Serengeti?

Important Point to note:
- It is difficult to get Transport/Transfer from any Strip in Serengeti ( Seronera Airstrip, Kogatende Airstrip, Sasakwa Airstrip, Lobo Aistrip, Serengeti Kusini Aistrip, fort Koma Airstrip and Kirawira Airstrip) to any lodge/tented Camp in Serengeti
This means that, if you book a flight to Serengeti, and you need a transfer from any of the above airstrip, the Safari Vehicle has to drive from Arusha or Karatu to Serengeti ( It may drive for: 450km from Arusha), to pick you up, and transfer you for a distance of about: 50km or more depending with the location of the lodge/tented camp.
- You may need a Safari Vehicle for game drive in Serengeti: As you visit Serengeti, you need a safari vehicle to drive around Serengeti, in this case, my best advice would be, why don’t land in Kilimanjaro airport, or Arusha, and drive in to Serengeti with your private Vehicle that will do both transfer and game drive?
