East Africa or South Africa?

Jump to last reply

First time thinking about a trip to Africa. Before my hisband and I retire, want to see the scenic beauty and wildlives/safari, historical places, and local culture and enjoy the ethnic food of Africa.

First decision to make: Should we go to East Africa or South Africa? I did some preliminary research. Both look good. Do you have any preferences based on your experience from both places? If I have only 12 days to travel ncluding arrival n departure, which one is more doable?

2nd Qs: We are from NJ. Do you have a recommended travel agent. I am on the list of Independent travelers group. Never tried them before. What are the things to watch out for Africa trip?

3rd QS: I see that the trip could be somewhere between $5-6K per person. Its really expensive for m and my husband. Need your input here too.

Thanks much
