Read all the information before you go. When they say it gets cold in Africa and bring hat and gloves ...pack them. If you read through all the information carefully before you go you will not be surprised by anything and it is a courtesy to your fellow travelers to be equally prepared. We had a great group which made the trip more special. Some drive days were long but we covered a lot of South Africa in 3 weeks.
