African Adventure! by eoinfenton on 2 February 2007 8:46pm
Hello everyone.. I'm currently planning, or attempting to plan a trip, with two friends through eastern africa to finish in south africa. We were planning to start in tanzania as we want to visit a schoolnear dar-es salaam we were twinned with in primary school but after that we're flexible. If anyone has done a trip there before I would really appreciate any tips/hints/suggestions. Thanks!

hi, i ve been to east africa and south africa and im planning to do the same trip as you some day, except i will be starting in south africa. if i was doing it your way my first stop would be kenya, its probably easier to get a flight there and you'll be missing out if tou dont go. dont forget to go to zanzibar and do a safari, kenya, tanzania or botswana are probably the best places for that. im plannind to include botswana and namibia but apparently you need a car to get around as transport is not all that great.

malawi is supposedly amazing too, never been there myself but it comes highly reccomended.

enjoy your trip!!!

Are you planning on independent travel or would you consider doing an overland truck type trip like Dragoman or something similar?
I agree with Tim; don't miss out Kenya. In Tazania you could try the old TanZam train route down through to Zambia and then do some of the game parks in Zambia and on down to Vic Falls which should not be missed. If you don't like the idea of going to Zim you can cross over from Vic Falls to Botswama instead and do Chobe and the Okavango and on down to S Africa from there.
