Safari Planning--Where to Begin?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I would like to go on an African safari in 2013. At this stage of the process (the very beginning), it is overwhelming. I'm willing to do the hard work but any guidance you can give me now will be greatly appreciated.

I went on a Micato safari to Kenya many years ago and very much enjoyed it. My husband has never been. While I loved my trip to Kenya, I would like to visit a different country and have narrowed it down to three: Tanzania, Botswana, or South Africa. If we go to either Botswana or South Africa, we would probably want to visit Victoria Falls.

So how do I begin gathering the information to choose?

At this point, we are looking at 10-12 nights in Africa. (It will take us forever (at least) to get there from Los Angeles. We do not want to self-drive and would prefer to stay in permanent tented camps. I'm guessing our budget is about $10,000 per person not including air fare. We haven't selected any particular time of year to travel. What other factors should I be considering? What are the advantages/disadvantages of each country? Besides all of you friendly folks providing insight, any pariticular resources I should be looking at?

Thanks in advance for setting me on the right path.
