need help planning s africa trip

Ten friends in our forties from Atlanta are planning to go to South Africa in Feb/Mar 2007 (flexible) We are excited and want to do things right. We want to go to Capetown, do a safari, a side trip to Victoria falls and open to other ideas. Money is an issue- would love to keep costs under 3k but don't want to rough it either. Any ideas? Should we consider an escorted tour group like Globus or find another way to personalized it. Thank you for any help you can provide!

mcdan58,

5 points

1. Much of your planning will depend on how much time you have available for your journey?

2. Even though I cant really see how it would be possible I must ask whether your 3K includes airfares and if so from where are you travelling?

3.What currency are you quoting in?

4. Another point that not many will realise on this board but that is VERY IMPORTANT in terms of costs would be whether you DEFINITELY are going to be 10 people? I ask this because the difference between 6, 8 or 10 people on group tours is huge due to switching over to larger vehicles.

5. It looks if you could have flexibility on your hands so with that said can you travel in March/April as an example. I ask this as you will be crossing over shoulders seasons and will obtain better rates in many places in the Western Cape region as an example.

Please elaborate on the above and I am sure that someone on this board will be able to help you further thereafter.

Very proudly part of the wonderful nation of South Africa
