Kruger, Falls and Zimbabwe trip-departing 3rd August 13

Postby marielouise28 » Mon Jun 24, 2013 7:02 am

Hi,

I'm Marie, 28 and have just booked the Kruger, Falls and Zimbabwe trip leaving on the 1st August.
I'm flying into Johannesburg, staying overnight and getting an internal flight to Livingstone to join the tour on 3rd,then last day of trip having another night in Johannesburg before flying back next day (cheaper to do return flights London-Johannesburg)
I'm staying at Ritz backpackers, anyone else?

It would be great to chat with others going on the trip to share the excitement....! :D

Hi Marie
Natalie here, 25 from the UK.
Just wondered what dates you are at Vic Falls? I am there from the 7th - 10th doing the self led 'explore livingstone' tour, before joining the 'SA & Swazi quest' on the 10th.

Hi Marie,
My name is Kim, I'm going to be on the same tour as you, Kruger, Falls & Zimbabwe starting the 3rd August ending in J'burg. I'm 24, from the UK but living in Australia at the moment and have always wanted to go to Africa, even if it's just for a short time before I travel on to London.

I'll be arriving in J'burg on the 3rd to get an internal flight to Livingstone. Would be great to hear from someone whose also doing the tour :D

Kind Regards,
Kim

Hi Kim,

Brilliant! Thanks for your message. What time do you get your flight to Livingstone on the 3rd? I'm in Jo'burg night before then getting internal to there, think my flight is in the morning...will check. Yes-Kruger has always been on my wish list, should be amazing!
Where are you in Australia? I was there a couple of years ago, SA a pretty good stop gap to the UK :)

Hi Marie,
Sorry for my late reply the Internet had been down where I was in the Philippines. I've just got back to Perth on Saturday. Can't believe that it's only 4 days away :) :D :D
My connecting flight is at 11am on 3rd August. might be the same flight, I'm going BA?
I'm based in Perth, WA, kind of a big country town with better infrastructure. I haven't been to SA yet, but might be on the cards later this year with work.
Have you been able to make contact with anyone else on the trip? I'm so excited, it's like a dream come true.
See you soon :)
