I am organising another trip to Africa for my parents (great international travellers) and I for May, 2014. I am going down in January alone and staying at &Beyond properties because they don't require a single supplement. I was hoping to visit new places in May and heard it is the low season so I hope this helps with our budget.
I am looking for hints and tips about mid/luxury lodges that are not going to break the bank (I am a single and would prefer not to pay a supplement), wanting to try and see the start of the migration up so lodge ideas that follow this would be great, feedback from people who have been on safari in Kenya/Tazania during May and would they do it again (weather/sightings etc) and any other advice to assist me.
This is my parent's first trip and I have convinced them to go but have to organise it myself. I really want to make this a special holiday so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
My general outline is below:
7-11 May - Sabi Sands
11-15 May - Cape Town (self contained apartment)
15-18 May - Victoria Falls (David Livingstone?)
18 May - transit day
18-20 May - Ngorogoro Crater (Sopa Lodge?)
20-23 May - Serengeti
23-27 May - Masai Mara
27-30 May - Nairobi
