Hello Daan!
I was visiting Tanzania in 2004 and did some occasionally recordings there
during a 3 week stay. The recordings where not the reason for going there,
so it was like an extra - like instead of shooting photos I made sound
recordings. Though having not traveled in lots of other countries in Africa
I felt Tanzania being very friendly and probably as you seems to want to do=
probably very easy to make some arrangements with individual guided trips.
We where staying some days in the Mikumi national park and as I remember it
was very easy to make up day to day plans with small group tours in the
national park. (means I doubt it would be a problem arranging solo travels
into national parks).

Also I guess Kenya, the north neighbouring country might be as easy as

Hakuna matata! (as I learnt it - means "Don=B4t worry" in Swahili)

All the best!
