Hello fellow travellers!

From Calgary, Alberta. I'm getting so excited for this trip! Have you started looking at the optional activities as of yet?

Hi Everyone;
My name is Beth, and my husband and I will be traveling with you all! We're from Regina Sask, Canada. Very excited for the upcoming trip. I do have one question for you all: what type of sleeping bag will you be purchasing? do you think I could get away with buying a 7 Degree Celsius bag?

Hi Beth, we were not sure on this either so we just bought minus 2 Celsius bags as heard it does get cold overnight. Not long now. How many days before the trip are you staying in joburg for? And are you staying at the companies hotel? Pretty nervous about joburg as heard it is not very safe.

Hey guys! Sorry for not keeping up with the posts. I heard it gets a bit chilly too, but not to the extend we're getting in Canada right now, so you should be fine. heh. As for Joburg, I've asked around, and I think as long as you stay on main routes and kind of know where the sketchy areas are, you should be okay (and stay in groups!). I'm getting a little freaked out though, January snuck up on my faster than I anticipated....
