First Safari- Tanzania or Botswana?

Jump to last reply

Hello! I am planning my first trip to Africa for this December. I am deciding between Tanzania/East Africa vs. Botswana/South Africa. I have a good 3-weeks, and if time permits, I'd love to add-on Namibia or Vic Falls, perhaps a gorilla trek as well. My first decision is East Africa vs South Africa.

My main interest is wild life and the vast nature, I'm also interested in the culture of Africa. I'm most interested in the natural "untouched" experience. I don't need to go to big cities.

I will be traveling solo, safety is important to me. I do not need the grandest luxury, however I also don't want to pitch my own tent. Something intimate with charm in between is perfect for accommodations.

I would like to participate in a small group trip that makes the arrangements, and I'm hoping to not spend more than $7000.

Thank you in advance for your feedback.
