African Safari

Jump to last reply

I've already purchased a 6 day safari in South Africa. I would love to visit another camp where I can stay in a treehouse. I thought maybe Botswana, because I heard I could see more animals. I haven't done my research yet, therefore still do not know which months would be best to go. Have not reserved air yet. A few questions:

1. Which months would be best to see the Big Five if possible? I know this is not guaranteed.

2. Which countries would you suggest as a second safari choice and camp for treehouse adventure and daytrips?

3. What sites would you recommend we not miss?

4. Is a trip to Victoria Falls a must? What

My trip is two weeks, not necessarily the whole 2 weeks in country and I realize I can't see everything. I like to enjoy what I can on each trip and not try to overwhelm myself with I must see everything. That's not a vacation for me.

I apologize for such a vague approach to all of this, I just have not been able to do much research yet. I'd love to hear what you have to suggest so I can begin my research with that bit of info. Budget will be somewhat limited, but the South African safari portion has already been paid for and I hope to get fights thru my miles, so I will start with a budget of about another $6,000 for both of us for the second part of the trip, but if I have to spend more to see and do amazing once in a life time things, then I will not hesitate to increase the budget, just need to be reasonable and wise about my choices.

I promise to research more, but thought I'd get a start this way. Please respond and get me started. Thanks so much.
