We are planning a trip to Okavanga Delta then Tanzania hopefully Tarangire NP, Lake Manyara NP and Serengeti NP. We will be starting our trip in Cape Town and after visiting the above will finish in Zanzibar.
We checked prices last year for travel in June 2013, but the cost for the standard of accommodation we wanted (4/5*) was a little outside of our budget. There were quite a few flights included and we wanted private safaris, as we have travelled to Kenya and Botswana before on private safaris and prefer to do it this way. We do not want to compromise on standard of accommodation.
Would appreciate any advice on alternative times to travel, other than June, wheen we can get the best weather possible in all these areas at the same time getting the best animal sightings. Do the changes of seasons have that much impact if you travel at the end of one or beginning of another?The prices can be quite different. We anticipate a trip of approx. 3 and a half wks.
Thank you in advance.
