Photography safari in oct./sept. - where to go

Jump to last reply

I've been to Tanzania for 3 times now, 2 times to the northern circuit and 1 time to selous and ruaha in september 2011.
Right now I'm looking into a trip for september/october this year and really doubting where to go. I'm tempted to go to Selous + Ruaha again as I absolutely loved it, but on the other hand Im wondering if i shouldn't go explore somewhere else ;)

What I'm looking for on safari;

Absolute nature; I love the tented camps of around 10-12 tents, more basic = better (prefer no electricity, but candles and campfire :) )
Pure; not a fan of tarmac, waterholes with lights on them, etc. If I wanna see a leopard on tarmac I'll go to the zoo ;)
My passion is photography (next to the wildlife of course ;) ), so don't care to much for walks. Not really interested in night drives per se either, but this can be convenient as this often also means the can leave earlier and stay out later on 'regular' drives.
Open vehicles
No more than 4 people per car (by default)
No crowds; i prefer tsetseflies over safaritrucs and 6 cars around 1 lion ;)
Wildlife: would do anything for wild dogs and serval... big fan of leopard as well (duh ;) )

Budget is probably around 5000$ (excluding international flights) and i'll be on my own.. (single supplements...sigh)

Looking forward to your suggestions!
