Hello! I'm so excited that my parents, brother and I are going back to Africa after our "trip of a lifetime" in 2007. I wanted to share our itinerary with you all and provide a write-up for anyone interested after we return. We trolled the forums a bit in planning this one, so thank you all for your write-ups, information and advice!

We are leaving mid-November, returning in the beginning of Dec.
