I'd have to say either Masai Mara Camping Safari or Inca Trail (if I was in better shape).

So many to choose from... I like Delta and Falls Experience (Namibia), Annapurna Sanctuary (Nepal) and the Bali trips.

Fav cheapest trip would be the one to the liquor store...oops wrong list...I'd say it's between the Delta and Falls and Cinque Terre Coastal Walk.

I agree the liquor store is a favorite trip, but even they keep uping the prices. Eventually it will be cheaper to fly to costa rica for my beer.

I'd really like to go on the Northern and Southern Thailand Discovery trips with Cambodia. I'd be on the lookout for one of these the entire time:

Ahem, the fruit loops guy is a toucan. They're much cuter than the hornbill, except to another hornbill. :lol:

Better start brushing up now on your Peruvian birds -- 1,800+ species await! There are really great birds in the Amazon. You'll see some toucan-types there. Keep an eye out for hoatzins (pronounced watsins) there. They were one of my favorites (on a long list of favorites).

I kinda thought I'd could fool someone re the Tucan...lol

Unfortunately I'm not heading to the Amazon. I opted for the Inca Empire instead of the trips that hit the Amazon for 3 days. I now have an excuse to hit the Galapagos and Amazon next time.

I think I'd go with the Kruger Camping Safari from that list, although there are plenty of tempting options.
