I thought there was an instructional post for first time safari goers? But I can't find it - did I dream it up?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I go away for the Canadian winter - last year was Egypt/Jordan then 2 months in Barcelona; year before than SE Asia/OZ/NZ and before that South America.

For 2009 we're considering a safari and then ???? - or India and ????. I find myself overwhelmed with the safari information and rattling around like a pinball - very much LIFO - last in/first out. I seem to recall a posting here as a place to start but can't find it - does anybody remember that?

I've seen the amazing summary of East Africa trip reports and will tackle those, but just wonder if there is a safari for newbies/dummies posting. I guess I'm looking for something like Barry Boyce's Travelers Guide to Galapagos if that makes sense to anyone. That book clearly delineated between itineraries/cruise ship types/etc and I was able to see what we would like most.

We're very independent travelers - 51/63 respectively - in good shape and adventuresome.

Thanks for pointing me to any relevant posts (or books)
