Egypt and Great Migration Africa Safari Trip

Jump to last reply

I am trying to put together a trip to Egypt only for 2 days and then spend about 2 weeks throughout Africa. Not sure as beginners where we should start out in Africa and how long we should be on a safari, I hear it can be physically exhausting day after day. We would like to see the great migration, be in the wild as well explore the small communities and interact with the locals. Does anyone have advice from a trip they may have done and also what is a great time of year to go when the great migration is in full swing, I understand the rains have a lot to do with what migrating you will see. We are planning to go sometime during September, October or November. I have found that September may be a great month.
Also it seems that local African Agencies are a far better route and less expensive in comparison to US Travel Agencies? Any suggestions for reputable local agencies?
Any Suggestions would be greatly appreciated??
Thank You,
Tanner
