AKL tours - please help a newbie!
Long-time reader (about 2 years or so), first-time poster here. Thanks for all the invaluable reading material over the last couple of years!
DH and I just booked a trip for mid-April this year at AKL CL. This is our first time ever doing CL, and our first time in a long time at AKL (last time we stayed there, construction hadn't even begun on Kidani, so it's been a while)!
We just got the CL form listing the tours we can sign up for. I knew about the sunrise and sunset safaris, but there is also a night vision safari that I didn't know about.
We are 99% sure we're going to do the sunset safari, if it's still available for our dates.
I'm wondering if anyone has done the night vision safari, and if it's worth it to a couple who a) loves animals and b) is up at night anyway, but will have already toured the AKL grounds on the sunset safari.
Also, I'm wondering if the sunrise safari is similar to the second half of the Wild Africa Trek, where you're driving around in the private safari vehicle. We've already done the Wild Africa Trek and loved it, but if the sunrise safari is similar, I don't want to get up at 6 a.m. The only day we could do the sunrise safari is a thursday, which happens to be my birthday (why we're splurging on CL - it's a milestone one - 40!), and i work afternoons/evenings so am normally a late sleeper, so I'm thinking of skipping this one if it's similar to the Trek.
Thanks so much! I hope I'm doing this right - posting for the first time is nervewracking.
