Planning for 2012 or 2013

Jump to last reply

I'm just starting planning a trip to Africa within the next year and a half. We , my husband and I, want to do a safari - see the Big 5 etc., see some cultural sites, perhaps tour tea or spice areas, and spend a couple of days on a beach. We are hoping to have a couple of friends join us.
We're in our mid-fifties, relatively fit, can't afford luxery but are past the point of wanting to really rough it. Camping for part of it appeals to me but not if I have to sleep on the ground and don't have access to a shower. I'm hoping we can do it for the two of us for 2 - 3 weeks for around $10,000. - not including plane fare to get to Africa.
We'll both be retired by this summer so the timing of the holiday can be flexible.
I appreciate any advice you can give me: where to go, when to go and with whom we should book.
Thanks.
