Hi everyone and I need your help.
I am determined to go to Africa this year: end of December, beginning of January. Countries that I am considering are Kenya or Tanzania or both. Little bit about us: we are in our mid 20’s, we love to be active, and we love nature, authentic culture, food, bars, beaches so we would want to experience it all not just safaris that seems like most are talking about. Also budget is a very important part, I usually plan all my trips, itineraries and travel by ourselves. If I understand correctly, safaris are usually done with the guide, so you are in their hands for couple days or whatever you buy. But I imagine traveling to different destination could be done by us (buses, trains, cabs). We will have 10-11 days for this Africa experience. So I read quite a bit and still feel like I don’t know much at all, I would appreciate any info for possible itineraries or any other info. I guess it could start in Nairobi and I would just explore Kenya, or in Dar Es Salaam and just Tanzania or maybe I could start in one and finish my trip in the other? Also I would consider other countries as well if you think they would create a better experience for authentic Africa.
Thanks a lot in advance. Lets start this planning officially :)
