I'm single, and I want to travel, but I don't like traveling alone, but I'm not going to compromise ... where to go?

I would love to go on a two week safari in South Africa. Can anyone help me make this happen before the end of June? That is, is there anyone here who is interested in this same travel?

If there's anyone here who is normal and who has always been curious about wild animals on a hot summer's day? ... normal, healthy, active Africa Safari ... for fun and the usual where everyone keeps their professional distance.

This appears to be a dead end ... but does anyone know if flying through Frankfurt is the correct route?

I think you need to be a little more patient, Your posting is only been up for less than 7 hours. Wouldn't it be Winter in South Africa in June? Not necessarily ice and snow but still the coldest part of the year, and not a hot summer day.

You need to think farther ahead. The better safaris are booked up months, even a year, in advance. Costs are $250/day to $800/ day per person (unless you're doing self drive, self guide, self camping).

Do your research and plan for next year. And June is not a particularly good month for safari in most of SA.

Looking for a quick already planned group tour that includes air from USA? Try friendly planet, gate 1, pacific holidays, overseas adventure travel, etc. (I've used friendly planet before, very happily. I've never used the others )

How should we know? We don't know your departure or arrival airports.

I'm thinking you need to call a travel agent.

Edited to add: Just realized this is a troll. Shame on me for getting fooled.

OP we may answer if you stop posting crap like Blondie videos and pictures of unrelated topics. I've been to SA, I have a lot of advice, but not with the way you are treating this forum.

If you are trying to bump your own thread - say hello to banned camp.

I apologize for not knowing that African Safaris have to be booked a year in advance, and that it's not correct to comment on one's own thread too soon. I didn't mean to get it wrong.

I would like to take an African Safari, and research shows me many options, but I don't trust any of it as there are many "private" tour options. I don't even know where to begin with finding a legitimate organization. This is something I want to do. I would prefer to do this with a guide, with a group where singles are priced accordingly.

I do understand that it's not an option for this year's two weeks, but perhaps I can fit it into next years three weeks ... if someone can point me in the right direction. If double occupation is required, I can do that, but it's not my plan.

I have no idea what you last sentence means.

Go back and reread my first post in this thread. I gave you several names of companies that do what you are describing. If you belong to Costco or AAA or AMEX, call their travel departments. Buy a recently published travel guide book on amazon. Go to the forums at fodors.com (don't bump your thread, don't post meaningless crap like you did here. It's annoying.)
