- Wedding: December 2012
Ok, a little background: FH and I are getting married on New Year’s Eve. Our choices for Honeymoon scheduling are January or August ’13. If we go during January, we can pretty much spend the entire month. If we vacation in August, we can only spend 2 weeks. We are theater nerds, live on the Gulf Coast, and are in our late 20s. Our budget is on the generous side. We have traveled abroad before, both independently and together (cruise of the Med).
Since we got engaged (even before that, really), we were considering the UK, namely Ireland and Scotland; however, that was with a different vacation schedule in mind. On good advice from you fabulous Bees we are pretty sure Ireland and Scotland in January is a no-go. So, where should we go?
The option of going on safari has come up. We are both active and physically fit, we enjoy day hiking, but FH is no outdoorsman (I don’t think he’s ever even been to summer camp). I grew up camping, hiking, all that good stuff, but FH’s first comment when safari came up was “isn’t it dirty?” I don’t know anyone who has gone on safari, unless you count a camel trek in Algeria.
So, I’m looking to crowd source the discussion a little bit.
What did you love (or love currently) about your safari honeymoon?
What did you hate (or hate currently) about it?
Would you recommend safari to a good friend? Why or why not?
What made safari the best option for you and your SO?
Do you think an active, physically fit person without substantial experience outdoors would enjoy a safari?
If not, do you have any other recommendations?
