Help me plan...Zimbabwe and Tanzania

Jump to last reply

Greetings, after hanging out at the Europe forum for years, I am coming over here looking for help. Been to Africa before, Ghana for couple of weeks. We visited with help of a relative working there. We traveled in tro-tros, went all over the country and really enjoyed it. We enjoyed being off the beaten path, and seeing how people lived.

This time, I do not have the relative with us (in Sudan, can consult!) so I am organizing. We are three adults, looking to see countryside and people, a safari would be great, budget wise not looking to rough it, or be waited on hand and foot (vague enough ? :) My companions are not a backpacking crowd, but are open to adventure. No bungee jumping, but going to interesting places...

We are planning for this march, three weeks (dates TBD). Flying out of N.A.

As my first pass, I am thinking Victoria Falls, followed by safari in Zimbabwe, off to Kilimanjaro/Arusha area, and finishing in Zanzibar.

I've bought the Rough Guide for Tanzania, and am starting to read-up, google, etc..

Can you experts give me a ya/nay, suggest a way to split the time, is the sequence good, etc.. book safaris there,etc..

Not sure if renting a car makes sense. I see ferries, I see overnight trains, I see buses, I see trains (too many visions :) )

Yes, I know it's vague. I can handle Europe, but Arica seems to have a new set of challenges.

Thanks for any help!!!
