South Africa and Victoria Falls: a newbie needs some pointers

Jump to last reply

I'm in the very early stages of planning a trip next May for my wife and me. I'm thinking of leaving St Louis on Sat, May 18 and returning Sat, June 1. That would be 13 nights.

Having never been to this part of Africa and being interested in wildlife, pretty cities and nature, and being active travelers, I'm considering this "first draft" itinerary.

May 18: Fly from St Louis to Johannesburg and spend the night there (Delta has a non-stop from Atlanta which gets in at 5:25pm on May 19).

May 20: Fly to Cape Town and spend 3 nights there.

May 23: Fly back to Johannesburg and end up in a camp near or in Kruger for 4 nights for safari.

May 27: Fly to Victoria Falls and spend 4 nights there, seeing the falls and doing some wildlife viewing, perhaps a day trip to Chobe.

May 31: Fly to Johannesburg and spend the night.

June 1: Fly back to St Louis.

How does this itinerary sound?

Will Cape Town still be beautiful in mid May and worthy of a visit?

Our safari budget is unknown at this point, but we'll probably want mid to luxury camp accommodations where there are private baths and excellent guides.

Any recommendations for a tour operator to help plan and book the Kruger camp and intra-Africa airlines?

Any recommendations for where to spend the 4 nights in Kruger area for the most variety of wildlife viewing? I'm thinking a private reserve would best suit our needs?

Any tips on how to get the most out of our time in and near VF and where to stay?

Thanks so much!

Dave
