Three Weeks to Travel in Africa

Jump to last reply

I am planning my first trip to Africa with a girlfriend of mine. We will be traveling to Africa for three weeks in July 2011. We will fly into Jo'burg and then to Richards Bay to spend 5 days at Amangwe Village conducting photography workshops for the children there.

After that, we were thinking of backpacking the rest of our time there -- hoping to travel along the coast, see Victoria Falls, a game preserve/safari and then fly home out of Nairobi.

Is this too much to fit in our amount of time? Too risky backpacking for two females? We are planning to spend between $3,000-4,000 USD on the trip. Given what we want to see and the amount of time we have, what would be the best way of getting around & where are the must-see spots?

Thanks for any help!
