African Safari

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are in the initial stages of planning a special holiday next year in August.
Our ultimate aim to to go on an African safari to see as much varied wildlife as possible.
We are totally confused as to what destination we should really be focusing on in order to make any other decisions.
Are there any dos or don'ts or things to consider than aren't necessarily posted in the glossy brochures.

Can anyone recommend any companies with an all-round package? What area should we focus on? The travel agent suggested Kenya, but my concern is will that be crowded??

We don't mind a couple of nights in tents but do to health problems we dont want to spend too long in them and the same goes with walking, we are not able to trek distances.

We could team it up with a beach holiday but this is not our priority, so what do you think?
This is a dream holiday, so we want to get it right, so would love to hear from other peoples experiences.

We could have up to 3 weeks in time .

Many thanks
