Advice Please for an African Safari

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are interested in taking our first (and possibly only) trip to Africa sometime in the next year or so. We are in our 50s and in good health. We have just started researching and are already quite confused. I have always heard of the Serengeti but am wondering now if that is the best place to go. We would love to particularly see elephants and giraffes in the wild (and other animals, too!) I am guessing we are looking at a mid-level price point (not sleeping on the rocks but probably can't swing 5 star accommodations all the way.) We're thinking of a two week trip but could shorten or lengthen this a bit.
I also have to admit I am not a fan of mosquitoes or sweltering heat!
We would love any suggestions or recommendations for further research.
