>>going to africa at the end of october to november for a 16 day trip. <<

Where in Africa? It's a very big continent? You're on the Kenya Forum... is this where you wish to visit, or maybe Tanzania... both in East Africa. Or do you with the southern African countries, as South Africa?

Whichever area, suggest you buy a guidebook so you know why you're visiting where, history, culture, areas to visit, suggested accommodations, visas, health, etc. All in your group should be on the same page and in agreement of where, interests, etc.

Do know that in East Africa, end-Oct into Nov is the 'short' rainy season (also rains can come in the southern countries), but this doesn't mean it will rain, and if it does, not daily or all day... and for certain the game don't go on holiday. A little wet doesn't inhibit safari. Prices though do come down a bit by this time of the year.

The replies so far are assuming Kenya, but if other... do let us know or post on the appropriate forum, but provide more info than 'where should be go' as each safari can be designed for the particular traverler/s.

I whole-heartedly recommend Benefactours. They are East Africa specialists who can create custom safaris for any budget, with accomodation from home-stays to 4 star hotels. They also have tons of experience and contacts to arrange volunteer opportunities in a variety of settings. We went to Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania. We saw the Mountain Gorillas, took 2 safaris (4-day in Queen Elizabeth Park, Uganda and a 2-week in Kenya/Tanzania). Also vouluteered at a preshool and at an orphanage. It was truly the trip of a lifetime!

Benefatours customer service is exceptional: quick and courtious. You can check them out at benefactours.com or on facebook at https:/…

Get in touch with Cynthia, the owner, before you book anything.

Have a great time!!
