Planning a safari to Southern Africa can be a daunting task if you have not done so before. There are so many choices of tours and safaris that choosing the wrong one can end up being a terrible experience which all depends on your specific requirements. You might not enjoy the traditional camping adventure safari or you might not have the budget for the more expensive accommodated lodge tours.
Your safari to Southern Africa takes careful research, planning and preparation. The best option is of course to contact a specialist on the ground and discuss the various types of tours available. This can range from camping safaris, accommodated tours, self drive safaris or you can participate in group scheduled departures. The choice is entirely yours, but choose carefully.
In contacting the right people, take note of talking to someone that has experience. You do not want to talk to someone that just needs to sell a package quick. From a vast list of Tour Operators available on the net, look for their location, years of experience and the quality and variety of safaris and tours available to you. If they have a guestbook or tour reviews, this could be a good place to get your buy in. Read through their Itineraries carefully and ask the right questions
