My husband and I are hoping to go to Afica for 2 1/2 weeks in mid Jan or Feb 2008. We were hoping to spend time in South Africa, botswana, visit cape town and drive garden route. Once we started researching we learned that south africa isn't as good in Jan-feb as tanzania. It's high season, busy, more expensive and animal viewing isn't as good at that time. So we started researching Tanzania which looks wonderful but worrying that I will regret not being able to get to a city or to to do more than just be on Safari. I don't need to go so far to find a beach (ie visit Zanzibar) and I don't know that we will be able to go to Africa again.
Any one have experience visiting southern africa parks, etc. in Jan or Feb.
