First safari

Jump to last reply

I am in the beginning stages of planning an African safari. At this point, there are two of us traveling but will likely be at least another two couples. I have narrowed it down to one country - Tanzania. My next step is to determine how long I would want to spend on a safari, I'm guessing no more than six days, only because I would also like to visit some other parts of Africa (i.e. Cape Town, Johannesburg and Zanzibar). Am I being too adventerous? Willing to spend $5-8K per person but would like some recommendations on when to travel and various travel agencies/groups/organizations that provide private tours/drives for 2-8 individuals. We are adventerous and really don't like the "cattle call (herd) tours". Have found - Africa Dream Safaris and a few others but so far ADS is the only with private tours and customization.
