Advice needed! Tanzania or Botswana for early June 2008 safari?

Jump to last reply

I am getting married in the first week of June 2008 and will probably be going on the honeymoon right after that. My fiance and I would like to go on safari in Africa and I have narrowed it down to Tanzania and Botswana based on things I've read as well as the great advice on this board.

I'd like to ask the people on this board if they could give us recommendations for or against Tanzania and Botswana at this time of the year. We would probably go for somewhere around 10-12 days and would like to maximize our chance of seeing a good variety of animals while we're there. I'm assuming this would be our only trip to Africa so we would like to see as much as we can. Even though it would be our honeymoon we are not looking for something very romantic (i.e. balloon rides etc.).

If we did Tanzania, we would like to consider Zanzibar for a day or two but would not be interested in sitting on the beach. I also understand that there may be some way to see Chimpanzees in Tanzania. Would this be easily worked into a trip which focuses mostly in the north of the country?

One other note, my fiance has pretty major motion sickness. I understand that Botswana has the delta with canoe trips and the roads in general in both countries probably aren't the best. Do you think this will be a major issue for her?

Thank you for any and all advice. I assume I have to get working right away on getting things booked for June, so any advice will help me out greatly.
