Safari Planning for 2015

Jump to last reply

DH and I are considering a return trip to Southern Africa for a safari. Here's what we are pondering 1) its a very LONG trip from Los Angeles. Where could we stop on the way to relax for a day or two? and ditto on the way home?
2) We just came back from our second trip to Costa Rica and were disappointed, the wildlife sightings weren't so good, no wow factor. We'd hate to have that happen in Africa. Having said that, we've gone back to Thailand, Bali, India and many other places and loved it as much the second time. OK probably answered that.
3) We loved the game viewing and birding from Land Rovers in the Okavango Delta a great deal (stayed at Mambo Camp, what's not to like?); probably a bit more than Zambia. We've enjoyed the mobile tented camps with friends in the Serengeti and the Mara. Would we see different landscapes in other parts of Botswana? Different type lodging experiences?
4) Also considering Namibia while in the "neighborhood". Any recommendations for 2 areas, 3 nights each?
5) We are seniors, my husband will be 77 when we take this trip in May-June '15, I'll be a young 70. It will be our last big blow out trip. I just want to insure that we build in lots of relaxing time and creature comforts.
All suggestions and advice welcome.
