Recommended Tour Operators - Honeymoon in South Africa or Botswana

Jump to last reply

My wife and i would like to honeymoon in South Africa/Botswana and go on a safari (and maybe take a side trip for shark diving if at all possible) sometime between January and March 2012. We'd like to spend approximately 9-11 days on the ground and would like to have as much of the trip arranged as possible (e.g. pickup/drop off at airport, itinerary, travel to destinations, etc.).

I was hoping to get some recommendations for reputable (high-end?) tour companies or local safari agents in Chicago, IL that may be able to help us plan a memorable trip. We're fine with pre-packaged tours or having a more custom tailored itinerary. Are there any significant differences between going on safari in one country vs. another?

I would also be interested in any recommendations for any game reserves or destinations that would be considered "must sees" as it's our first trip to the region. Thanks in advance for your help.
