Need comments/suggestions on solo itinerary Kenya/SA in 8/2011

Jump to last reply

I wrote earlier in the year asking advice about my upcoming solo trip. I was then thinking I would use Micato or some such company. You all convinced me that I should do this on my own...so here is the itinerary (I wanted a taste of both east/south Africa))that I put together with a local Africa hand. Would love your comments on the various camps if you have visited them. Also suggestions about what to do with my "free" AM in Nairobi. I think I may join Cape Grace Hotel small groups for the Cape Town activity, but if there are other things I should do there please suggest away!
