Hey guys just wanted to know if I should wait to do this till later in the year. I have an opportunity in late June but am thinking that the heat/Ramadan combo will really reduce what I see and can do. I've traveled to Iran and Turkmenistan during the summer but Djibouti, as I know, is a whole other beast. Anyway what do you guys think?? I also have Eritrea on the list but the visa is sooooo difficult I don't think I have enough time to get it.
My boyfriend and I (both 24 years and Dutch) are planning on doing a three day safari starting in Mwanza from where we head to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro and finish in Arusha. We have found a tour operator who offers us to do the safari for 500 dollar if we find three other people who'd like to join. It will be a camping safari.

Considering flying from KL to Mauritius in October.
I hear it may be only worth several days at most so I am looking to travel to other locales/countries.
What are the best transport options to visit nearby more interesting countries?

Air Asia is opening up the KL to Mauritius route with starting fares fairly cheap.
It is a long way to go-about 8 hours from KL after I travel 8 hours from Australia.
I have done much of Asia and thought a new destination would be good.
However my neighbour who has been there many years ago says it is not as good as many Asian countries.
Does it have a distinctive culture, food, attractions,cheap accommodation, friendliness of locals etc????????
Another option is to use Mauritius as a…
I want to cross over from Israel to Egypt, but need to get a proper visa (as the land entry visa gives me access only to the Sinai). Is it possible to apply for this in Tel Aviv or Jerusalem? If so, what are the (approximate) costs?
