1st safari advice

Jump to last reply

I've read so much but feel I need some customized advice.

Taking my wife on an african safari, for both our first time to Africa. Where to go in early to mid July? this year. yes, I know it's soon, I need to get on this planning train quick! time and money is pretty open but:
July 2012
8-16 days
10-$20k (total, not each).

Never been so not looking to do a self drive (unless you can convince me otherwise). That said, we're both around 30 yrs old, very outdoorsy, we're fine sleeping in tents on the ground, not showering for a day or a few days etc. I would prefer to spend more on an amazing guide, getting the better sights, and going where there are less tourists but perhaps give up some "nicer" accommodations. Combining safari with a Kilimanjaro summit is certainly in the cards. ending the trip with some higher end accommodations for 1-2 nights would be great too.

thoughts? advice? suggested itineraries? suggested guides\companies? I can't wait to see what all you wonderful people have to say. and thanks in advance for your help.
