We have a possible cruise leaving from Capetown on December 4, 2010. Since our flight stops at Jburg to refuel, we are hoping to have a layover of 4 or 5 days here before continuing our flight on into Capetown.
I have used TA fervently in the past - getting help and advice for many trips. I know there is much research that we will have to do, and we will do it. I am not trying to get someone to do all our work for us! But..... I simply have no idea where to start. Africa is a new destination for us (except for Egypt in Jan 08) and as usual, we hope to get the biggest bang for our buck. We are budget travelers - retired educators - 70 & 73 and want to see all we can WHILE we can!
We are interested in the history, the culture, the art, music, the animals, the people, the food, the wine etc etc. Perhaps you might guide us to some postings where a similar trip has been planned in recent years.
Thanks for reading all the way through!
