We are a family of four (ages 62, 60, 29, and 27) planning our first safari for the first 1/2 of June 2019. Tentatively, we are thinking 7-8 nights safari and a few nights ending in Zanzibar. I know most folks do the Northern circuit, but DH really hates crowds, so after reading a lovely review of the Southern circuit by ShepofBristol, we started looking into that. I love the idea of boating and walking drives to mix it up with the SUV drives.
Here's a few questions: Will we see a lot less animals in Selous/Ruaha? Would it be feasible to add Ngorogoro Crater to Sealous/Ruaha? Mosquitos are also really attracted to my son and he is very sensitive to bites...any difference in north vs. south?
