Trip Planning Tension

Tension and anxiety build as decisions come to a critical juncture. We narrow the possibilities for Tanzania down to two tour companies and the decision is a hard one. When there is so much money on the line, we cannot just “go with it”.  We try to eliminate the unknowns but there still many. It’s a big commitment and it is so many months away.  But there is also excitement – for the animals, for the beauty, for the traveling.

On Friday, we finally get closure on the safaris we are looking at. We sign up for a private safari with L&R for 10 days in Tanzania, visiting the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park.  Murray and I also sign up for a 10 day safari in Botswana heading to the Moremi Game Reserve, Okavango Delta and Savuti. Although we still need to send money and papers, a great weight has been lifted.  Murray says the shroud surrounding his head has cleared a little.

Now that those dates are set, we can concentrate on our flights – both long haul and domestic flights. The flights are quite complicated so the tension builds again. Once those are done, the tension and anxiety will ease substantially.
