Getting married this summer and looking to go on an African safari for our honeymoon Sept-Oct 2024 for about 10 days. Budget is $10-12k all in. Is this doable with still nice accommodations? Where do I start the search/planning process? Any advice would be awesome

Did a South African Safari as part of our honeymoon ten days is way too many. We did three nights, and it was plenty. Most game reserves do two drives a day, and that was great.

I highly recommend spending time in Cape Town or adding on Seychelles or Mauritius for your other days.

I have recommendations for a travel agent and activities if needed. DM me

Your budget will allow you to have a great experience. Most safari camps are all inclusive (expect high end alcohol). It'll start to get expensive if you add on gorilla watching, as the permits for those are around $1,500/person.

I did a similar trip last September for 10 days and it was spectacular. I recommend adding more than just the safari to fill the ten days. For example, 3 days in Cape Town, 3 days on safari near Kruger, and 3 days somewhere else (we chose Victoria Falls, but you could try Namibia, Botswana, or Madagascar)
