Sonali and Hari,

I'll be at Mala Mala main camp end of May/beginning of June this year.

Mala mala is well known for its leopard sightings... so it was about time to check that one out.

I've been to Tanzania and Kenya and loved it but if I can choose well... you know.

But I am planning to do the mother of all trips to Tanzania in 2008. (Selous/Mahale/Ruaha/Katavi/Serengeti/Ngorongoro)

Greetings,

Johan

Sonali, I saw lots of polar bears in Churchill, Manitoba last October. I did a trip report, on both the Africa and Canada forums, that have provide the link to my photos. Should be easy to find by putting "polar" in the search box.

Sonali,

To answer your question about where I was, it was at work! No chance to check the boards. Sorry about the passport.

Johan,

When in 2008 are you planning on Southern Tanzania? I was strongly considering that too for about Aug 2008.

Lynn,

I was thinking to go in July 2008.

I got something of the following in mind:

- Mahale (4 nights);
- Katavi (7 nights);
- Ruaha (5 nights);
- Selous (4 nights);
- Ngorongoro (3 nights);
- Serengeti (10 nights).

Not particularly in that order.

I am planning to book it early 2007.

Greetings,

Johan

Johan,

This thread is going all over the place from Montana to the Serengeti! If you care to share any of your findings on those Southern Tanzanian locations, I'd love to receive any info--either on Fodor's or my email. If I don't go until 2009, which is also posssible, I can just read the details of your report.

Yes, Johan, i would be interested in knowing more about your research about Southern Tanzania.....

Sonali,

Honestly, you should give South Africa a try...any of the Sabi Sands reserves......i'm sure CCAfrica don't charge a single supplement charge......you can combine Londolozi/ngala/phinda

They are all good for predators, and you can follow the big cats for as long as you wish.......the best thing is, there is never a bad time to visit these areas.....you are always going to get to see good game...
