Thinking of going on a safari in May/June 2013 if that is recommended open to other times if suggested. I read somewhere Botswana was the better of a first safari, looking to stay 12-14days with a budget of about 8,000/pp. Would love to stay in places that have luxury accomadations but also feel like a part of Africa out in nature. Really interested in seeing the Big five. Was looking into Tanzania and the Serengeti then read about Botswana. Would love to hear recommendations for both and also touring outfits. Would like it to be a private tour for about 5-6 people. Also wonder if Victoria falls could fit in any of this? Thanks for any help!
