I think I'll be travelling with you! At least for the first couple of weeks.

I'm doing trip DATJ, Cape Town to Jo'burg Adventure leaving on August 11th.
I posted a couple of weeks ago but didn't think to look for trips with shared paths.
Our trips are doing the same course up until Livingstone (DAY 19). I assume we'll be in the same group. I'm very envious of your 40 day tour and that you're off to Kenya. My other option was to go Jo'burg to Nairobi.

My name is Xavier.
I live in Melbourne, Australia.
I am 27 years old and riding solo. Looking forward to meeting fellow travellers.
I'm pretty well travelled and have used G Adventures once before through Peru.
The tour is attractive for ease and adventure.
The Cape Town to Jo'burg Adventure is 28 days. I've got 5 weeks off in total and will be arriving in Cape Town a couple of days in advance if you want to catch up previous to the tour. I wouldn't mind seeing the night life on the Saturday.

What about you? Where are you travelling from?

Hey! That sounds awesome! I am really looking forward to this trip!

My name is Kenna.
I am from Manitoba, Canada
I am 24, and also doing a solo trip, very much excited to meet people!
This is my first G Adventures, so I am really excited to see what is in store. I have traveled a fair bit around Europe, and North America.
I'll be arriving in Cape Town a few days early, and staying in Kenya a couple days after the tour..so it could be great to meet up prior to the tour if we could work something out!

Hey Kenna,

Nice to hear from you.
I think we should most definitely hang out pre-tour.

So, my plans:
I fly in on Friday 9th of August.
I've booked two nights stay at a hostel, Zebra Crossing, which is pretty central to town and not too far from the joining hotel.
The only thing I've locked in is a tour of Robben Island for Saturday 10th at 9am. Feel free to join if you haven't yet booked. I'm sure it'll sell out at some point.
I'm also keen to hike up Table Mountain on one of the days and would enjoy having a beer or two on Saturday night.

Keep in touch and closer to the date we'll lock everything in.
Getting pretty pumped.

Hey! That sounds awesome! I arrive in Cape Town on August 7th and am very keen to soak in all I can. I am staying at The Backpack, which I think is farily central as well. I am booked for the same Robben Island tour, so we shall at least see each other their!

I leave 2 weeks from today..so I am getting quite excited!

Hey Kenna,

From your post you must be getting into Cape Town today.
I'll be arriving there Friday morning.

Not sure how I'll be feeling (jet lag etc.) but maybe we catch up some time Friday?
Perhaps head out for a drink as well.
Glad you're on the same Robben Island tour.
I'll definitely be seeing you there,
But let me know what you're up to Friday.

Looking forward to it.
Email is xlawlor@gmail.com if that's easier.

Xavier.
