Hi folks,
It's Betty Sanders again. I'm going a day early - leaving Atlanta on Thurs Sept 25, arriving J-burg Fri Sept 26. Any one else going early?


Elizabeth Grey Aug 27, 2014 at 10:39 AM

My name posts as Elizabeth Grey. I'm actually Betty Sanders & would enjoy hearing from others on the Sept 26 trip & Victoria Falls extension & others who've taken these trips before.
Patricia Jones Aug 27, 2014 at 06:02 PM

Hi, Betty and others...My husband Ralph and I will be on the same trip. We have never been disappointed after at least eight international Road Scholar trips and I hope you will love it too. Do you have any books or movies to recommend before we go? I love to read fiction and non-fiction related to our destinations. We live near Rochester, NY.
Elizabeth Grey Sep 11, 2014 at 06:51 PM

Hi Patricia; looking forward to meeting you & Ralph. Only 2 weeks to go!


Elizabeth Grey Aug 27, 2014 at 10:35 AM

I'd like to hear from others on this trip & the Victoria Falls extension. I'm travelling by myself & really looking forward to meeting others through this site.


Michael Fischer Jul 11, 2014 at 11:13 AM

Anyone else out there that's going on the August 20 tour. And any advice from any who have already been?
Ilene Ringler Aug 07, 2014 at 07:14 PM

hi we are on the trip as well. looking forward to meeting you


Michael Fischer Jul 09, 2014 at 04:59 PM

Does anyone have any suggestions on types and brands and models of binoculars to take?


Susan Sumeri Jun 09, 2014 at 03:34 PM

I finished Mandela's "A long Walk to Freedom", the book. For anyone that doesn't have the time to read it - it's long -, read Stengel's "Fifteen Lessons on Life, Love, and Courage". The 15 chapters are digests of parts of "long Walk". It gives you a feel for Mandela's life. I also have Frommer's "South Africa", pretty good and National Geographic's "South Africa" - not worth the money. One reason Alex and I chose this trip plus extension were the two safaris - we loved our time in Kenya and Tanzania.


Michael Fischer Jun 08, 2014 at 08:55 PM

Irene and I are still signed up and looking forward to it. I've started on the reading list as well. Katie Payne's book on elephants is fascinating and I'm learning lots and lot from Mandela's autobiography. And while the book Scramble for Africa was a long and involved read, it also provided valuable information about history. I'll have a couple of the field guides with me on the trip and do share.


Susan Sumeri Jun 08, 2014 at 05:53 PM

Mt husband Alex and I are registered for this trip and the extension leaving August 20. Anyone else?
