KT,
You have asked a challenging queation to answer.
due to the sheer enormity of Africa a trans African safari would not be possible in a week or a month.

So you will need to narrow down your search to a couple of countries instead. If you are after an inexpensive week to month long break and if it is the wildlife element tha appeals to you, I wouls duggest that you research an East African safari.

Should you desire a holiday with greater variety and NOT just a wildlife experience then I would suggest that you look into a southern Africa trip. Here however I do believe that you will not get the same values as east Africa, however I would be pleased to learn if I am wrong.

Hope that helps you get started,

It's true one word can change everything.
Suggest you look into a Kenyan overland trip.
2afrika.com has some nice journeys that are inexpensive. I notice that the SA/Botswana trips are well priced too.

If that is still on the high side, may I suggets that you get closer to sourse and speak with companies such as: whichway adventures & drifters, both based in SA offering southern african adventures.

they are what are known as particpative journeys where you get involved in the cooking cleaning etc of camping.

For a camping tour that is not participatory, but still budget and balances cultural experiences with animal viewing I suggest you look at IntoAfrica http://www.intoafrica.co.uk/index.htm, AfricAdventure http://www.africadventure.net/index.htm and Mount Safaris http://www.mountsafaris.com/

I received very good recommendations for IntoAfrica both here and on other travel forums. Will be travelling with them next month.

Hello, sorry for the intrusion. In this post AfricNow mentioned africadventure.net. I just wanted to clarify that we are now operating as Zed&Away (www.zedaway.com). AfricAdventure focused mostly on Uganda, but we are now offering several countries in Africa, including safaris, sport holidays, volunteer work, etc. Thanks, Ivan
