Safari Advice for First-Timers

The Seattle Post Intelligencer has published a piece on a safari trip to Botswana – with a day’s excursion to Johannesburg and Soweto – that should be of interest to all who’ve ever wanted to get up close and personal with southern Africa.

John Engstrom, who wrote the article, had a thoroughly enjoyable experience, and picked up some valuable travel tips for others along the way. The only quibble I have with his piece is the “worth every penny” price for his Soweto tour. $70 a head is rather steep; he could have had something just as authentic for almost half what he paid. (See A Day in Soweto for a good, reasonably-priced Soweto tour.)
