East Africa (Tanzania) or South (Botswana) Middle June 2018

Jump to last reply

Looking for some feedback on a trip for family of four this June to either East Africa or South Africa. Trying to decide which will be a better fit. I have researched Tanzania, Kenya and much of the East. Finding that there are closed vehicles in the large parks. I am reading a lot of comments on mosquitoes and tsi tsi flies and have had several proposals from different companies. Some say East June is not a good time of year high grass hard to see the animals others say its wonderful. Not sure we want spend 12 days in a vehicle though we want to see wildlife! We have about 15-17 days and I did consider incorporating both areas. Botswana looks amazing quite remote and it has the land and water option. I am not sure there is enough abundance of wildlife I hear it can be scarce at times. I have had one person tell me June is the worst time to travel to East Africa and we will not see any of the migration at all.
Botswana and Vic Falls and Capetown with Mozambique is another option or East - Tanzania areas ending in Zanzibar or possibly with a Gorilla trek. We are a family of four twin 19.5 year old twin boys. I welcome any suggestions on which area they might enjoy more. I really do not think we can go wrong after my research both seem amazing, just having a hard time deciding. Thank you for any help and or recommendations of the best go to person. I have spoken to many companies from A&K to Thomson to Micato and cannot seem to decide which or who is the best fit. Thanks in advance.
