After contacting a few companies I've come to the conclusion that safaris are beyond my budget, so I'm just going to do the tourist thing without spending a fortune to go on safari.
So I'm looking for suggestions for an itinerary. I'm going to be in Tanzania for a couple of weeks in Sept. I don't mind hanging out for several days if I find a nice place and don't need to move everyday. It's a holiday after all.
So where would you go? Should I just stay on zanzibar for 2 weeks or is it worth exploring the mainland if I'm not going on safari? I wouldn't mind doing some bird spotting if it's not going to cripple me financially.
