|I arrive in Johannesburg on the morning of June 2 following nearly 30 hours of traveling (18 of which will be in the air). I am spending the first 4 nights at Moonlight Backpackers Lodge in Hartebeespoort, approximately 90 minutes north of Johannesburg. On June 6 I am heading to the Backpackers Ritz in Sandton (a suburb of Johannesburg) for 2 nights. My overland trip leaves from here the morning of June 8.
From June 8 to July 9 I will be on an overland trip with Africa Travel Company. During this trip I will be moving from destination to destination on nearly a daily basis. For a detailed itinerary go to www.africatravelco.com and look up their "Journey to the Cape" trip. The basic breakdown of the trip is as follows:
June 8-June 12: South Africa- Johannesburg and Kruger National Park
June 12-June 20: Zimbabwe- Masivingo, Gweru, Bulawayo and Victoria Falls
June 20-June 25: Botswana- Kasane, Maun/Okavango Delta
June 25-July 7: Namibia- Rundu, Etosha Nat'l Park, Swakopmund, Fish River Canyon
July 7-July 9: South Africa- Orange River and Cape Town
From July 9-17 I will be in the Cape Town area but as of yet do not have a set itinerary. I do know, however, that I will be traveling to the nearby wine country and to Gansbaai to cage dive with great white sharks!
