About 6 years ago I made a promise to my 6 year-old son that I'd take him on a safari when he finished 8th grade. A few years ago that plan became a little questionable, when we were surprised and blessed with another son. I'm trying to figure out whether/if I should keep my promise -- which would entail travel in June 2007 with a 14 year-old budding naturalist and a 4 year-old!
In my limited inquiries to safari groups I've received mixed responses. Tamu Safaris was one of the few that responded positively. Noticed that Unique Safaris also organizes individual tours and is receptive to younger children. I'd love to receive advice about whether to attempt this (I'd love to if it's not an insane proposition); whether the itinerary of Arusha National Park, Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongo Crater is a good one; whether it is recommended to use mobile luxury tent cabins or larger lodges; and anything else that you'd like to add.
