Hi, is anyone doing the (reverse) Cape Town to Victoira Falls trip on the 19/10? I'm interested to swap any trip tips and exchange info etc. :) Kevin B
Hi, I'm not going on this trip but i did take this trip last year and just wanted to tell you what a great experience you have in store. We had a great group and three great trip leaders, shane, gecko and happiness....we all felt that vic falls to cape town was a good way to do the trip....there's lots of wonderful things to see and do. Yep, long drives but you just have to get into the Zen of Being on the Bus. It is hot in the desert (duh) but in the morning not so much.....have a great time. africa is wonderful. sarah
Hi Sarah, thanks for taking the time to respond (even if you've already been!) I have been through the reviews for travel tips, which was useful but I have a few questions for you if that's ok? Moneywise, how did you split your currencies, in terms of proportion and were you able to pay for optional activities with a card? How roomy or not were the tents, as I assume you need to keep all luggage in them overnight? For this time of year my info is that I should be ok with a lightweight sleeping bag and/or liner.. Many thanks Kevin :)
thanks, glad i could be of some help. vic falls i believe is best seen from the air. some folks with us went over in a helicopter i think. thought it was the best fifteen minutes (or whatever) if the river is really running there is a lot of "smoke" that is vapor and all that hides the actual falls. even when the falls are not running all that much standing taking pics will get you a nice freshet shower. A few people went to livingston pools which is a place to swim, or at least get wet where one swims at the top of the falls....it was evidently very cool and i wish i had known about that. I had no problems with the moosies....we just made sure to use spray and the tents were well protected...we kept the screen doors on the tents zipped.....into namibia and the dunes we all went riding down the dunes...hilarious, fast and i hated the walk up.....some folks did the four wheelers....fun....i wanted to air balloon over the desert but it was not available and we felt the airplane ride was too long and too expensive....so some went to the snake farm and some of us ate our way through the town....when you get a chance and if you would i'd love to hear about your kenya to zanzibar trip as that is probably my next trip to africa....no pressure.....just when and if you have time....also, if i think of anything else ............ sarah
Hey, thanks! Are you dong the 30 day trip then? Awesome :) I did the Vietnam Adventure trip last year and it was brilliant (best guide and group I been with so far) so you'll have most of that to look forward to as well as the rest of Indo China ! Let me know how it all works out :) Re. Africa - how much money did you actually take with you? I'm still uncertain what to take and how to split the currency up.. thanks Kevin
I'm going to this trip from Spain, then, I join the group in Livingston, in the airport. I hope my flight arrives ontime.
Sarah, thank you so muy for the information, very practical. Everythig souns great.
Good to hear from you! I take it that you are Spanish then? I'll see you at Livingstone airport on Sunday and don't worry - they will wait for you! :) Kevin
Yes, I'm Spanish, from Madrid. Do you know if the temperature decreases so much during the nights? Also, I am following the weather in Livingston and it seems to be quite hot. I am trying to adequate my luggage but it isn't a easy job!
Yes, I also looked at night time temps as I wanted to check that a normal sleeping bag would be ok! Having checked online and also looked through the reviews on the Exodus site I'm confident that they won't drop much below 15 degrees (for mid October to early November) for the 1st 11 days or so, however it may well be a bit cooler as we head south so a normal bag plus a liner should do the trick. Day time temps will be pretty high at around 25-30 degrees but if you're from Madrid, you probabaly won't find that quite as challenging as the rest of us! :)
