Cape Town to Vic Falls, May 2014
First trip - amazing experience - next time might try a trip with shorter drives or more double days as the set up chores and take down sometimes uses a lot of exploring time, but absolutely no regrets and loved it!

Cape Town to Vic Falls, May 2014
There were some changes in the itinerary which resulted in more 1 night stands than expected. 3 nights in swakopmund was 1 too many, time spent at the activity centre not good - this service was within easy walk of accommodation and so accessible to those who wished to make bookings. Some of the activities were not unique to Africa.
