    Hello. I need some advice. Im looking for a second opinion about what are the best countriest to go on a safari. A friend went to Botsawana last year and she enjoyed the experience very much. But the way she described i dont like, it was flat and dry so it is similar to my own country (im hungarian). im looking for something different but a real safari experience. I dont know what else to do after the safari is over. What are some good places to go visit to enjoy good food, buy lots of cool traditional stuff and relax? Hope you can help, thanks.

    Hello. Thanks, i have looked similar websites before, but im looking for personal experiences and opinions. I dont trust those webside much becuase they try to sell a perfect vision of your vacations. Too much marketing.

    Im ttrying to find out what are the best countriest to go, what are the safest ones, and cheapest, best time of the year to go, that kind of information.

    Hello. Yes sounds very exciting to go for a safari. I want to try something new becuase traveling in europe has become boring for me. I like animals a lot, in the budapest zoo there are many african animals like lions and elephants and hippos. But it is not the same to see them in a cage than in the wild, so that is one of the main reasons I want to do this. I just hope i dont get eaten alive out there.

    :lol: @ getting eaten alive ... :eeek: ... oh gosh ... don't let that happen!

    i'd be concerned about that too ... but i'm sure there are safety measures incorporated to prevent that ... right ... :)

    Do have fun ... and don't get eaten alive ... :grouphug:

    :heart:

    You should be fine. You can even wear your best jewelry.. diamonds and gold are very common in Africa so you won't attract much attention. They actually worship consumer electronics in Africa.. so you should take everything you have and drape them all about your body, the people will fall down on their faces and treat you like a God. European tourists are treated with the utmost respect all over Africa.. it's the people's way of thanking the European for all that they have done for Africa. You will have the time of your life.
