Honeymoon Safari recos? (want no kids, small groups)

Jump to last reply

As my screen name may imply, I'm not quite as excited about my wedding as my long-standing dream of doing a safari in Africa. I have spent hours (days?) reading through the forums here and am impressed with the knowledge of tours and countries, but didn't see anything fitting my specific questions, so here I am.

My fiance and I are both very flexible as to location within Africa, luxury level, booking our own vs. tour, and strenuousness (i.e. we are both athletic but do not require that to have fun). We are getting married on November 3 2007, so would leave a few days later. I would love and appreciate any recommendations that fit our requirements:
1. Smaller tours
2. Less crowded park (if you see a lion, you do not have a photographic background of 8 other Land Rovers)
3. No (or few) kids
4. Hopefully under $5000, but again, we're flexible within reason.
5. If not a tour, places to stay from which you can see wildlife.
6. Length from 7 days - 15 days.

Thank you very much for any help!
