Thanks for the additonal comments/suggestions. I do appreciate all the help.

The single supplement really does add up quickly.

rizzuto, I am sorry you had to make changes half way through your RTW trip and couldn't complete the trip.

I am very tempted to visit South Africa [and Victoria Falls], especially since the airfare is paid for as part of my RTW ticket. (I know airfares within Africa are expensive. I have a maximum of one month in Africa, which is about 3 and a half weeks sightseeing, the rest are travel days for flights, etc. Egypt is a 10 or 11 day itinerary and therefore this leaves me with two weeks to visit another part of the continent.

I don't think you can go wrong on a first-time safari in South Africa, particularly if you stay in one of the Sabi Sands area camps. You might look at Elephant
Plains, which is reasonable by Sabi Sands standards. Kirkman's is another thought. For a recent trip report on Elephant Plains (they went in Oct.), see

Scroll to near the bottom of the report for the Elephant Plains part. You'd have to pay extran (I assume) to fly from Johannesburg.

SV, because I'd never been denied a waiver of the single supplement by &Beyond I didn't think of it as luck. But maybe you're right and it's the Universe's way of taking care of a lonely guy?

Best, Steve
