Planning Tanzania trip-how many months?

Jump to last reply

Hello all,
My dh and I are planning a safari to Tanzania. We have the second half of June in mind for our dates. Is 6 months enough lead time for us? My husband has a medical condition (not serious at the moment) but we are thinking of not committing to a trip until he has some follow up tests in January. We are interested in the N. route of Tanzania with 7 nights in the bush and one on each end of our plane trip. Mobil tented camps are our choice--we are interested in smaller crowds and will definitely consider a private guide/driver. I understand that we will see other people, but are trying to avoid large group trips. Our budget is $3500-$4000 pp incountry. SO--is 6 months lead time enough and does anyone have a recommendation for a good safari planner? Thanks!
