I know who I am travelling with, so why the question?
You find your tour operator, you choose your time of year, you decide which parks you want to visit. But who do you want to travel with? Not a silly question, and the answer is very important, says our expert, Safari Wanderer. This could be a once-in-a-lifetime trip, so everything has to be just right – especially your travelling companions!
Well, you have an important choice to make. Yes, of course you already know who’s going with you – maybe just your spouse, or your children too, maybe your safari to Tanzania will be with a group of friends. But depending on the choice you make, you could also be sharing your time and space in Tanzania with someone else. Many operators provide two choices: those that are usually called private tours and those that are called small group tours. The difference is important.
