Should I travel with a group or have my own private guide/vehicle?

Being accommodating to others is essential if you travel with a group. Mixing travellers in the same vehicle could result in birders accommodating "cat" people and vice versa. It's impossible to pair groups of people together with the same interests, should you choose to go in a group setting. Most safari companies that sell standard "canned" tours with set departure dates mix people of all ages and interests. Can you imagine spending $6,000 pp to share a vehicle or your dinner with others that have the exact opposite interests as you? Bird watching while a lion in the distance is about to hunt a cape buffalo is frustrating. What if you wanted to leave at sunrise and the others in the group drank to much Safari Lager the night before and wanted to leave at 9AM? The solution to this problem is a private safari with your own vehicle and your own guide.
