Consider time restraints. Africa is an enormous continent, and travel between countries is expensive by air and time-consuming by land. For shorter trips, plan to focus on one region to avoid spending most of your time in transit. Consider also the travel time between countries or even between cities in a single country. Much of Africa does not have a well-developed transportation infrastructure, and long delays are common. In a time frame of two weeks, for example, you could reasonably plan a route that includes a camping safari in the Masai Mara in Kenya, a visit to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, and a day or two at Lake Victoria in Tanzania.
