I've booked a Botswana and Vic Falls tour for next year. It starts late enough in my work holiday where I have a few extra days to fill before the trip. I've found two extension options that are in my budget- an extended visit to Livingstone (my tour budgets a day), and a Kruger safari in Jo'burg. I'm torn between wanting to cover the most ground and seeing what I'm booked to see in depth (Livingstone).
If I were to go to Livingstone, I wouldn't do elephant riding, booze cruises, or bungee jumping. I might try Zambezi rafting (although I would love an honest take on the realities of flipping into water that choppy. I suppose the general lack of rocks on which I could be smashed and the requirement to wear a vest means more safety for me, but...), I'd also consider the lion walk with a conservation-oriented company, and I'd check out Chobe with a reputable company.
If I were to go to Jo'burg I'd focus on Kruger. I'm interested in Wild Wings' 5-day Kruger and Lowveld.
I'm no closer to making decisions. Based on what I've outlined here, any thoughts?
