I think I will feel a lot better if I ask for an escort to/from my tent on a regular basis. Will the camps think I am an "annoying tourist" if I ask for this? Will they even do it if I request it? Maybe I will feel more comfortable once I get there!

Imavolio,
I can just share with you my first impression from my first safari. I was very surprised at how little the animals cared that I was there. Of course, I followed all rangers instructions about not getting up or moving around in the vehicle or making any noise while in close proxcemity to the animals. Still I had it in my mind that they would somehow be very interested in me being there (I guess I watch too much Animal Planet).
Like they will tell you, they view a jeep load of people or a tent full of people, like any other large object (think big rockor large swaying tree). As long as you are not a threat to them, they really don't care that you are there. I think you might see what I mean, once you get there.
That being said, if you feel uncomfortable about anything, while you are there, be sure to ask and they should be glad to accomidate you. Never feel like you are not safe, someone can always be made available to you, to make you feel safe. So go and enjoy!
