First time Safari

Jump to last reply

Hi all, any help however little will be appreciated. We don't have a clue where to start. Don't know much about it at all so need a lot of guidance. My partner and I are wanting to do a 2 week luxury holiday with Safari included. We are looking at Kenya/Tanzania. We are keeping our budget open for the moment! This is a once in a lifetime holiday so we want to get it right. We want to see as much as possible from animals to just amazing sights! We would love to stay in a luxury lodge when doing the actual safari. We are planning to do about 4/5 nights. Then off to a luxury hotel for chill time. We would like good weather but views/animals are our biggest reason for this trip. Would love to do a hot air balloon trip! We want to make this special/once in a lifetime trip so any tips on where to go/what to do/where to stay/who to travel with/anything at all will be greatly received! We are looking to go in the summer of 2014, again time of year suggestions would be appreciated!

I look forward to receiving your posts! Help us plan this dream holiday.

Kerri & Ian
