Organizing a safari requires time and patience. The itinerary and accomodations alone can take a week or two to sort out if you take a hands-on approach. Researching where to go at what time of year, which company to use etc it's all very stressful especially if the safari is a once in a lifetime adventure
Having been on several safaris in the last few months, I decided to put together a "behind the scenes" article that really deconstructs the whole process and gives you a glimpse of what it's like to be there and some advice from a travel, tourism and camera equipment perspective. So head on over to my blog article entitled "Behind the scenes of an African safari" once you're done viewing this collection.
