First Time Safari Questions

Jump to last reply

Here's the situation:
Never been to Africa
Want to go on a safari
Don't know what country
Don't want to cram in too much
Purpose is to observe wildlife but not necessarily for photography
Want the comfort/atmosphere/scenery you see on the commercials
Walking/trekking would be nice
Would like this to be a bit special, may be once in a lifetime
Want nice lodge(s) but tents are fine
Will likely need professional help planning
7-14 days, including travel from Europe
Can I find something for May - August 2012?
Budget: I'll deal with stick er shock when I figure out if this is even within the realm of the possible. I know this will not be a budget adventure.
Am I crazy? Should I wait and give myself more time to plan?

All opinions, advice and suggestions are welcome.
