My mate and I are planning our first trip to the African continent.

 

When it comes to Africa we are as green (inexperienced) as the grass.

 

I'm retired but work summers as a tour guide at Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin, my mate works for our state's technical college system.

We're both former teachers.

 

We have a lot of back country experience in Yellowstone NP (America's Serengeti), Boundary Waters Canoe Area, but nothing like what we expect from Africa.

 

I'm here to research the subject.

 

Thanks in advance for the help.

You are now in the process of discovering that research is perhaps 40% of the fun of going on safari;furthermore it's quite educational. You will undoubtedly get more ideas for places that you want to go in in the future. I've learned a huge amount on this site. I'm constantly coming up with new ideas where I'd like to go on safari. I moved to Nairobi almost four years ago because of my great love of Africa. I have a great affection for Kenya,and it's people. I can't imagine living anywhere else but in Africa. I'm going to the States to visit my 80 year old mother.
