Has anyone gone on this tour in May-June? I would love to hear about weather at that time of year.


John Kristofic Jan 15, 2015 at 03:03 PM

Having difficulty with boarding pass. RS stonewalling. Any suggestions?
Annetta Gross Jan 15, 2015 at 08:52 PM

Very unusual. I would make phone calls and ask for someone higher up until you are satisfied. RS has always been on top of everything for us. If Andre is your leader/coordinator tell him his Florida friends said hello. Have a wonderful time.

Just wondering how many will be traveling on the 1/16/15 trip. Does anyone know? My husband and I are looking forward to meeting all of you.
John Kristofic Jan 11, 2015 at 03:26 PM

I'll be there with my partner "Dolly". We're taking Delta from Atlanta so we will arrive in Johannesburg about two hours after you.


Annetta Gross Jan 04, 2015 at 05:14 PM

It is always better to blend in rather than being out of place. Neutral colors get you in the mood for an awesome safari. On a walking safari we definitely wore neutrals because no one wants to attract animals.

Locals in stores do wear bright colors, but they aren't out with the animals. In cities, any color is OK.

The safari vehicles are white and really stand out more than individual colors of shirts. That became a joke of look at us. But we did follow the requests of what colors are OK and how to behave when out on a safari. Enjoy this wonderful experience.


Sara Bailey Jan 02, 2015 at 10:30 AM

Somewhere in our information it says to wear neutral clothing when participating in safaris. How neutral do you suggest? I have not been a "neutral" clothes wearer.
Eva Putnam Jan 02, 2015 at 10:50 AM

From what I have read, clothes worn on safari should not be too bright in color and that includes white. I'm planning to take clothes that are earth tones, brown, tan, gray, black, etc. and if I have room maybe some of other colors to wear in Johannesburg and Cape Town.
Eva Putnam Jan 02, 2015 at 12:02 PM

One more thing...white shoes are not recommended.


Eva Putnam Dec 29, 2014 at 07:31 PM

This message is for any female travelers who will be on the 1/16/15 African Safari trip with my husband and me. I realize it may give some of you a chuckle or two but, oh well, here goes. I don't know if you, like me, have been concerned about how I would handle taking care of things in the bush, au naturale if you will. I found a female urination device called a p-mate on a website called the grommet.com that I think will be of great use. Delivery did not take long so you still have time to order some if you are traveling soon. We are looking forward to meeting our future travelers.

What is this Liability Waiver? I really hesitate to sign something so all encompassing.


Catherine Cook Oct 21, 2014 at 05:22 PM

I have pencils for about 40 kids but now I need pencil sharpeners to match. Those little ones. I figured the pencils take up little room. It said the kids also want crayons.
Sharon H Oct 21, 2014 at 06:32 PM

Pencils, colored pencils, erasers, pens, markers, cap erasers, crayons, sharpeners...they'll love it all. I took about a shoebox full to a school in Peruand the empty space afterward gave me room to pack a few souvenirs.
Catherine Cook Oct 21, 2014 at 07:43 PM

Thanks Sharon for the advice. All sounds good. Are you going on the trip to Africa on 10/24?
Sharon H Oct 21, 2014 at 09:17 PM

We are going on the Feb. 6 - 20 trip. I hope you have a great time on your upcoming trip!
