Help - July '07- Southern Africa trip

Jump to last reply

I am new to this Fodor's forum and have been reading several of the postings for the past couple of weeks. Yesterday, I contacted some of the recommended agencies I've read about here for my upcoming travel in late July 2007 but am hoping that some of you may also have some unbiased views to offer as well.

I have traveled to Africa (Kenya) once before, but it was primarily a business trip.

By the time I will arrive around July 23, my boyfriend will have just completed an internship in South Africa (and he will have been there for about 3 months).

I would like to plan a trip that will include sights he will not have seen (so outside South Africa - Maybe Zambia, Botswana and Namibia?) and also visit some of the key sights in South Africa (probably Cape Town and something near Cape Town). I don't have much time to give (about 15 total travel days including flight time).

A trip that includes a visit to Victoria Falls appeals to me, and we would like to go on a safari (maybe just 2 days though) because the boyfriend is going on a week-long safari during his 3-month program.

I realize that time is very short and know that I need to pull the planning for this trip together pretty quickly. I have looked into organized tours because of the short planning time and short travel time. I'm just not sure I have a lot of faith in the organized tour agencies out there. I've read a lot of negative reviews about G.A.P Adventures and mixed reviews about 2Afrika.

I wish this message weren't so open-ended so that it could elicit more specific responses, but any help someone might be willing to provide will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time.
