The budget traveler's guide to safaris

I’ve recently written about traveling cheaply to a few places considered somewhat atypical for most American travelers: Colombia and Jordan (incidentally, I’ve also been to Egypt). It turns out that adventurous travel runs in the family. My sister Holly Van Groll is a Peace Corps volunteer serving in Zambia, and she recently shared some advice with me on traveling cheaply in Africa — specifically the southeastern part of Sub-Saharan Africa, where she resides.

Note: In 2014, I wrote a weekly blog series on budget travel for eHow. This post is from that series, so you'll have to head over to their site to read it in full. Thanks for reading!
