This is the official discussion thread for our amazing 2012 Safari, which you may already have read will be done in 3 segments during September and October next year.
So far we have three members (5 people in total) who have confirmed participation on parts or all of the trip, namely Richard Sandor (rbsandor) and his wife, Roland Tibell (Roland) and his wife and Ann Shelbourne (Ann), who will be a veteran of no fewer than three official NG safaris after this one! Four other members have indicated interest but haven't gotten back to me to confirm yet, so there are still 3 places for singles or couples to join us.
This thread is basically for any members who are keen on joining us to discuss the trip, how to prepare for it and what to expect. Think of it as a Q&A for this particular trip. Attached are a couple of Word Documents with the detailed itineraries for the 1st and 3rd segments of the trip. The middle segment is the Sabi Sabi portion which is where you will meet up with the animals and we do game drives for an entire week, so no itinerary for that.
Any segment is optional and each of them have their own pricing. The overview of the trip and pricing per segment is published here.
As always this safari is undertaken and administered by Nature Uncut Tours, so if you want to join us you will communicate directly with Pepe Jones once you've let me know you want to join in on the fun.
Some very good news is that the South Africa Rand, which our trip is priced in, is on a downward trend and has lost a significant amount of ground against the USD and other major currencies in the past couple of weeks. The trip just got cheaper!
