Solo woman traveler - needs help planning a trip to Africa

Jump to last reply

Hi all, I have just decided that I will be going to Africa solo... and need help figuring out the best place/places to go and with what company. I am a 38 yr old female... so I dont want to be traveling alone. I definitely want a group. I want some luxury, but dont know the differences between budget and luxury. Can someone help? And tell me what country/countries they would go to and why? Is it too much to want to hit two countries in one trip? I probably have 2 weeks there... Also, what is your favorite tour company? Sorry so many questions... I am a bit overwhelmed. I would like to go between May and September some time... but I'm flexible on dates. I dont want to be constantly running around... I would like SOME down time. I also know I want some adventure, but not too much... A nice mix between a luxury/service tour and an adventure tour. Any advice? Help!!!

Thanks!
