I'm new to this forum, but I was told that this is the place for experienced insight. We have three months (Aug-Oct) to explore eastern and southern Africa, traveling overland from Kenya to South Africa. We're mostly budget travelers, but the three big ticket items we'd like to splurge on are a chance to see the Serengeti migration, tracking gorillas in Uganda, and climing Kili. Are we better off arranging this in advance from the states or figuring it out once we get there? I know we'll be there in the busy season, so we don't want to miss out by being too laissez-faire. How do we know which outfits are reputable? Which are worth the money? And which are cheap for a reason? Any advice would be appreciated!
Migration and Gorilla permits--how far in advance?
