First time safari question

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I will be going on a safari for our honeymoon in August. Neither of us have been on a true African safari before. We're attempting to decide between 2 locations and curious as to what other travelers have thought of one or both:

1. Overland Safari therough the Northern Parks of Tanzania. This would gives us the opportunity to view the great migration up close, as well as the Ngongoro crater. We'd be largely driving from camp to camp (looks like around 2 hrs b/n if straight but I'm assuming we'll take longer to take in the wildlife), though there are times where we're at one camp and going on game drives and coming back.

2. Vic Falls and Zambia. We'd start with some relaxation in Vic falls before going down to the S Luangwa and splitting between 2 camps. This would be morning and night drives/walks based out of the camp.

I've been told that Tanzania/Kenya are the 'ultimate' first safari experiences, but am a little worried about the crowds. I'd rather go somewhere that's a little less crowded (other people is fine, I just don't want to see a dozen other vehicles circled around a single pride of lions - as an example). Zambia seems a little more remote but still has quality game viewing and opportunities to get close to the African bush.
