I just saw a TV show about Botswana - one of those where they fly over the countryside. Needless to say, it looked amazing. And it got me to thinking about Africa. We've never had Africa on our wish list, but now I'm asking myself why not. Other questions I'm asking:
So - anybody have any advice? @Deborah , didn't you visit Africa?
- How do I decide what country to concentrate on? More specifically, what country give you the most bang (i.e. wildlife) for your buck? Big cats are high on my list, followed by elephants and giraffes.
- Just how expensive are these tours - and I'm assuming you'd need to go with an organized tour, correct?
- When is the prime time to visit, and when are the shoulder seasons?
- And the hardest question of all: am I too old??? I'll be at least 67, probably 68 by the time we make this trip, and Art will be 73/74. I realize that our helath can change, but at this point we're both still active and mobile.
