Well, my wife and I are departing for our 3-week 'dream' vacation to SA in about 17 days and I just wanted to thank everyone for the informative postings over the past few months.
Through reading TA back in January I selected the person I entrusted with our precious itinerary (Tanya Kotze of Africa Direct) and she has done a great job fulfiling our requests, I think. Since then I have been checking in here regularly picking up dozens of fantastic tips from everyone who has posts in this forum.
We are spending 4 nights in CT then 2 nights each in Hermanus, Oudtshoorn, Knysna and Hazyview; 4 nights at Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge then finishing off with 2 nights at Toka Ley Camp near Victoria Falls.
Thanks to all of you, I've a list of restaurants as long as my arm, I've got (I think) the 'perfect' wardrobe for all eventualities, armed with a course of Malarone for the malaria-areas and a list of must-see sights that we will probably only be able to scratch the surface of.
Sincerely, thanks to everyone who contributes constructively to this forum. I do notice that so many of the same questions are asked repeatedly and you Experts seem to have infinite patience with your answers (rather than just 'Do a search!'). ;)
The only thing I can offer in return is a trip report when I get back - and that is what I will provide.
Once again, many, many thanks for helping make what we hope is a trip-of-a-lifetime. We are SO excited!
