First Time Safari Help...Use a tour or not?

Jump to last reply

Hello all. We are a group of 6-8 people planning a safari for September of 2017.
We have made inquiries with Tauck and a company called Yellow Zebra. This is the itinerary we like from Yellow Zebra:

Day 1 Arrive into Victoria Falls. Overnight at Royal Livingstone (Deluxe Room)
Day 2 Overnight at Royal Livingstone
Day 3 Fly to the Khwai. Overnight at Machaba Camp
Day 4 Overnight at Machaba Camp
Day 5 Fly to the Okavango Delta. Overnight at Shinde Camp
Day 6 Overnight at Shinde Camp
Day 7 Overnight at Shinde Camp
Day 8 Fly to the Kalahari. Overnight at Kalahari Plains Camp
Day 9 Overnight at Kalahari Plains Camp
Day 10 Fly to Cape Town. Overnight at Four Rosemead
Day 11 Overnight at Four Rosemead
Day 12 Overnight at Four Rosemead
Day 13 Fly out from Cape Town
$9,461 per person

Being our first time, is this a reasonable cost??? Or can other outfitters get us the same trip for less?
Also, has anyone dealt, or heard of Yellow Zebra? I've heard of Tauck, and they have a good reputation, but their prices for the same thing are even higher.

This price does include all in-country flights and transfers.

Thanks for any help or suggestions you can provide.
