First time in Africa on safari

Jump to last reply

I've been lurking in this forum for about a week, trying to wrap my head around a trip to Africa to see the wildlife.

Basic information: We are a couple with college aged kids. I work for a school district; therefore, the summer is really my only time to travel extensively. I have to be back to work by the third week in August. Number in the party would be either 2 or 3; depending on whether daughter's schedule permits it. We will be traveling from Los Angeles (long flight.) I'd love to go in 2015, but a trip to Japan over spring break 2015 may push this trip to 2016. Three weeks including travel time would probably be the max that we could get away.

The $1k per person per night properties sound fabulous but that's just way outside of our budget. I have noticed some people in the know suggesting locations such as Mashatu Tent Camp, The Hide in Hwange, and Ilala Lodge in Victoria Falls, that seem to come in under that price point.

I don't have to do it all this trip (plan to return in future years.) Any recommendations in the sub $750(ish) per person per night?

Thanks in advance.
