South Africa after Kenya & Tanzania - Why Do it?

Jump to last reply

O.K. I may be nuts (and a lot of you may say so which I'll take in good spirit) but I really am curious to hear some input to the question posted.

Four of us went went to Kenya and the Crater in Tanzania for a 14 day safari in late August/Sep 2011. We had a wonderful time. We loved seeing the animals and our itinerary gave us a variety of parks where we got to see everything from the Big 5 to the Black Rhino; however, I confess (O.K. here's where I'm going to get killed I know) by the end of the 2 weeks we were somewhat into the overload of "oh look, another giraffe" (cameras don't come up).

So now comes the general discussion of possibly doing South Africa in 2014 and I confess I'm concerned that our "Oh look another giraffe" would be an issue.

Hence my question in the title. For all of you that have done both - could you enlighten me please?
