I would like to introduce myself to anyone going on this wonderful tour. Im an active 67 year old female who has done alot of traveling in the past. I was a travel agent for 30 years. At the present I work at an RV Resort in the office. Im a life time Girl Scout (so have done my share of camping and ruffing it) Advance scuba diver, rock climber, back packer and hiker, and I'm a full time RV'ER, Love horsback riding, Eating out, Movies and you name it and I will try it. I love adventure.

Welcome to the Watering Hole, bjschilf! Thanks for telling us a bit about you. Sounds like 47 days in Africa is the perfect trip for an adventurer like yourself.

Be sure to check the Departure Lounge for August to see if your trip mates are looking for you. If you don't see your tour listed, go ahead and add it.

Buen viaje!

Welcome, you're going to love the heck out of that trip! I did the overland from Nairobi to Johannesburg last summer and to this day it remains one of my favorite trips of all time. Don't overlook the chances to dive and ride horseback (English style) at Malawi! You'll probably find as I did that very few people on your tour are campers -- they can use all kinds of help and advice (like, the bags for sleeping bags are called stuff sacks for a reason -- don't waste time trying to roll those puppies!).
