Would you rather go on a two week Mediterranean cruise, or a two week African safari?

Screw a safari. I've heard Syria is the best place to currently visit in Africa

Done both... In military... Safari is something I would like to do for fun. Med cruise would be a lot if shopping.

I've done both and the safari was simply amazing, and for me a more enriching experience. Tanzania is a safe place. The people are warm and welcoming. No need to be afraid. The loins were my highlight. Amazingly beautiful creatures.

- Monkeys/baboons & elephant IN lodge
- Friendly, well dressed, polite people. Felt completely safe.

Um, do you tend to sleep with random people or do a lot of hard drugs on vacation? If not, I wouldn't worry about HIV.

Safari. Cruises break down or wreck a majority of the time and the cruise line dicks you out of compensation. If you die on a cruise you're eligible to get 15k. Die on a plane you get 2 million plus.

A safari's an adventure. I'd rather that than a boring old vacation.

Neither. Don't like cruises and Africa has no appeal, what so ever! Now if you said Africa on a poacher hunt, I might be interested! I might be fun to see how many poachers I could bag.

This is all assuming the cruise line is NOT Carnival! If the its a Carnival cruise I'll do Africa instead of being stuck at sea when another of their clunker ships breaks down. Lol

I've lived in several African countries, they are as safe as the US. There are the dangerous places you don't go to, just like the US. But there are plenty if safe amazing places to visit.

Safari on the condition that it's a hunting safari. Dangerous game hunting would be quite a rush, and also a good excuse to use ridiculously powerful rifles. .458 Magnum, baby!

The Med is amazing and my first choice. But I realized that I might do that in my lifetime. An African Safari would be harder to afford or come by. So it's safari time!

Been on a 5 day cruise n loved it. What worries me about a safari is the food. I'm just very picky. That and to me a safari is hunting. Extremely expensive and so hard to do it right. I know they have non-hunting safaris but that is a true safari.

Most people don't hunt when enjoying the wildlife. I have enjoyed many relaxing, fun and exciting trips in Africa. There you actually get to use your 4x4. Most hunters go to game farms for commercial hunting. They have some in Texas too.

Texas grown African animals, ready to hunt in a natural setting without customs issues for importing dead animal hides etc.

While growing up a safari was always hunting. That's what it will always be for me. I've known several people who have gone on hunting safaris and that was their experience.$$$$ and hard to do right. The other is done daily at most any zoo

I will say that it is different peeing in the wild, trying to stay close to your vehicle while others keep watch. Living on the edge can be really fun ;-)
