Southern Africa trip, 3 weeks, 2014

Jump to last reply

Just beginning planning a trip for two couples, first timers to southern Africa, September 2014. We mostly want to see things not available in the Americas or Europe (hence not interested in spas, or wine tours.)
Rough itinerary so far is:
Capetown (3 days), train for some portion, Victoria Falls, plus several (2?) safari trips to see a variety of fauna.
Usually, we book our own trips, but as this is completely new to us, we would be open to using a service (only if they are truly knowledgeable.) We prefer a mid-level of comfort/luxury, not backpacker-ish, not ultra-luxury (too isolating for authenticity.)
Looking for suggestions A) itinerary (are we way off base as to what we can accomplish in 3 weeks?) and B) safaris.
Thanks, Fodorites!
