safari tour in June 2014

Jump to last reply

want to know....is it reasonable to try and book a trip to south africa or botswana beginning now for a late June trip? there seem to be so many reserves, tour operators, and options and it's the colder season (though is summer vacation period for many families) so my sense is that there would be plenty of openings. however, i recently read on one of these forum threads, a comment about being booked up and i also see a lot of travelers discussing their trips next year and having already booked. need advice. we could not know our free dates earlier. we've just figured out there are international flights available and that we have the green light on being away from our work positions and other responsibilities. can we pull this off? is it worth putting all the time and money into making a trip happen for essentially 10-12 weeks from now??? thank you
