Hi Africa lovers!
We have been to Tunisia and Kenya. Tunisia is cheap and cheerful - a 3 day
Sahara trip was fascinating and fun if touristy. We went to kenya 3 years
ago - cheapest destination for safaris. The children still remember it
vividly and long to return. You have a huge range of prices and really
whatever you do will be special. An option for a long trip from LA might be
to have a couple of days in London and buy a 'package' from there. Companies
like Hayes and Jarvis &Somak run all sorts of options. Zimbabwe is still
unsettled. As of this week Kenya has reintroduced a visitors visa costing
about £35 per person. You need a visa and yellow fever jabs for Tanzania.
Wherever you go do not forget the need for antimalarials - there has been a
huge increase in malaria cases in the UK this year mainly due to people
buying last minute deals to Africa and not taking antimalarials. Also
paludrine and chloroquine no longer effective in many areas and you really
need to take mefloquine (Larium in the UK). But it really is worth it.
