I am overwhelmed here. I want to start planning for a safari in 2014, but I'm having a difficult time getting started..
Can someone suggest a good resource to get me started? I suppose the first step would be to decide where I'd like to visit? Or would the first step be to seek out a reputable tour operator and have them make the recommendation.
I know basically I want a less touristy trip, no big cities or beaches, just wildlife and some culture. i don't want to be with bus loads full of folks, but being a solo senior (60) female traveler, I would like the company of others, with fairly nice accomodations, though not luxury. I'm thinking 14 to 17 days including flights, and would like to spend around 8,000-9000 USD if possible ( single accomodations....including air ) So what do you folks think? Where do I begin.
