Help with first safari trip - Hope you're not bored talking about this

Jump to last reply

Now that I have finished reading nearly every post on this topic, I swear I am more confused than ever. It seems that there are as many tours, tour guides, tour groups, itineraries, and price points as there are animals in Africa...No matter how I try to put my arms around this topic, I wind up back where I started - unsure about where to go and what to do...
So I turn to all of you, and hope that you are not totally bored with this topic in the hope that I can move forward and get my trip booked (as you know, you are only as good as your next trip....)
I started with the idea of going to Tanzania and Kenya during the time most likely to see wildebeest migration. I have narrowed the departure to either June or July next year, and to stay in Northern Tanzania and Southwest Kenya. I have a philosophical problem as my travel motto is "zig when everyone else is zagging", and from what I read, we'll be "zagging" along with everyone else at price points that are highly elevated.
I would like to stay in extremely comfortable (read: luxury) surroudings at least for a few of the stops.
Does anyone have an idea about what might be a better idea for a first timer?
Thanks so much.
