First Trip to Africa. Suggestions?

Jump to last reply

My girlfriend and I have recently begun looking for our next vacation destination. Africa seems to be the ultimate destination for adventurists like ourselves, but we want to see it all, and unfortunately don't have unlimited time or resources. We are considering spending time in South Africa and maybe Kenya or Tanzania. Our "to do" list currently consists of mostly "adrenaline junkie" stuff like bungee jumping, cage diving near seal island, free diving with whale sharks, and of course some type of safari. We would absolutely love to see the Great Migration, but aren't sure if it is really feasible or worth the extra expense/time. Anyone have any suggestions when it comes to seeing the Great Migration? Also, although we tend to be geared more towards the "get your blood flowing" type of activities, we enjoy learning about the history and culture wherever we go. Any other activities, adrenaline rush or not, that people suggest?
Thanks for taking the time to read this and help us out.
