Africa Tours and Safaris??

I am attempting to plan a trip to Africa for my husband. Can anyone recommend any tour group operators for a safari trip? Which areas should I be looking in...we will only have 12-14 days. Also-are there any discount travel brokers?

megtr,

I have been very happy with Taga Safaris.

I am not so sure what you mean by "discount travel brokers."

Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions. I will be doing my 4th safari in as many years in September.

Do you have a specific country or area in mind or is that part of your question? If you're asking where to go, then time of year could be a factor and also any particular interests/expectations you have.

I'm not sure what you mean by discount travel brokers either. Are you pretty set on doing a group tour or would you be interested in a private itinerary as well?

If you could answer some of these questions, then you might get more specific recommendations.

My husband and I took a safari to Kenya with 2afrika and it was delightful (price was $1,900.00 PP which included airfare from NYC only 3 other people on the trip with us also, 9 days). If you do a search on 2afrika on this forum you will find many posts.

What you first need to determine is what are you interested in.. africa the continent has extremely variable climates cultures and wildlife.. do you want to go gorilla trekking (Uganda/Rwanda) see the great migration (Kenya/Tanzania) are you interested in cultural experiance(Ethiopia)?
If you are just starting to plan, visit a couple of safari providers websites and view their various itineraries, this should give you a notion on what interests you the most.

Happy travels, this was the trip of a lifetime!

What time of year do you think you'll be going? That determines which countries would be best.

Are the 12-14 days in Africa or the entire trip?

You mentioned tour group. Many African agents can do a custom trip that would cost about the same as a group, if that would be of interest.

Here are some agents, but certainly not all, that have been mentioned favorably in the forum.

Africa Adventure
Africa Dream Safaris
Eastern & Southern Safaris
Fish Eagle
Go2Africa
Good Earth
Interntational Expeditions—small group travel specialists
Natural Habitat—small group travel specialists
Overseas Adventure Travel (OAT)-small group travel specialists
Roys
Taga
Thomsons
Wild Trek Safaris

You can search for these on this site for more comments.
