Hey,
I'll be traveling around SA next year, and was wondering if anyone could suggest how to get to / from Sodwana Bay, most likely from Duban (or Joburg). I will be travelling alone, so if anyone is around I'm open to having a buddy :D

Thanks in advance for your help!

I would like to speak to a lady who now is nearly 18 years old if she could meet the below conditions:

!. The lady was born in the Gambia in 2001
2. Her mother is Sierra Leonian and is called Isatou Ceesay
3. The young lady must have an older brother called Foday, who should now be in his early twenties

I believe this lady is currently living in Sierra Leone with her mother and other family members.
Please get in touch if you meet this criteria on joeanum@yahoo.com

We’re a couple in our 60s, liking good food, places to potter round, crafts and countryside. We want to go away for Christmas and are thinking of S Morocco. Would be glad to get an idea of recommendations for places to go, to stay(mid range) and what’s feasible at that time of year.
Taroudant seems feasible. Could we get towards Ouarzazate at that time of year or would the passes be more likely to be closed? We’ve been to Marrakesh and Ouirgane before. Thanks.

Egypt-Jordan- Israel plan

After going through a lot of blogs and forums and checking itineraries from different websites I have made a list of 'must do' and 'probable'. Also need advice regarding travel.

  1. I found the individual air fares cost quite a bit. So Mumbai-Cairo-Mumbai and Cairo-Ammam-Cairo for Jordan and Israel, will this be ok?

  2. In Israel, would like to cover Jerusalem, Masada and Dead Sea only. So can these be included in a road trip if we start and end in Amman? Or can any of these be done like a day trip from somewhere in Jordan?

  3. Must see places in Jordan- Petra and Wadi Rum

Should I see Amman, Jerash, Aqaba and Kerak?

  1. Must see in Egypt are Giza, Sphinx,Nile Cruise.

Should I include Saqqara, Abu Simbel with light and sound show? Anything else? Is one way night train from Cairo to Aswan or from Luxor to Cairo recommended? Which particular cruise company?

So general plan is to land in Cairo from Mumbai. Take flight to Aswan. Take night train to Cairo after cruise from Luxor. Fly to Amman. Siteseeing in Jordan and Israel by road and come back to Amman. Fly back to Cairo. Extra day in Cairo and fly back to Mumbai.

Please let me know what you think of this? Really look forward to your valuable inputs.

Thanks

Hello,
What is the best way to get Euros in Madagascar? The accommodations I have booked say they want cash payment in Euros. I guess I can see if they'll take US dollars but I'm concerned they won't.
Thanks.

Hi there,

as I am in The Gambia next January and want to do a four day four night river cruise I am looking for one to three travel companions for these four days to share the boat. The following itinary is planned but flexible:

River adventure: Janjanbureh to Bintang – 4 days / 4 nights

Day 1: Depart Janjanbureh and cruise to River Gambia National Park, with the chance of seeing hippos, crocodiles, chimpanzees and other primates. Arrive at Baboon Islands for feeding time, when the chimpanzees often come down to the water's edge. Spend the evening relaxing onboard or at the nearby Kairoh Garden Lodge. Sleep onboard near Kuntaur.

Day 2: After Breakfast, take local transport to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Wassu Stone Circles before returning to the boat to cruise to the wharf town of Kaur. Walk around the town, visit the market and head to Kauren Camp for great views over the river. Sleep onboard around Kaur area.

Day 3: Continue West to Tendaba, arriving in time to take a small boat in to the Bao Bolong Wetlands, which is teaming with bird life and offers the chance of seeing crocodiles. Spend the evening relaxing onboard or at the nearby Tendaba Camp. Sleep onboard near Tendaba.

Day 4: Depart Tendaba and head to the twin villages of Albreda and Juffereh (made famous by Alex Haley's book 'Roots') and the former slaving post on Kunta Kinteh Island. Dolphins are often seen on this part of the journey. Cruise to Bintang and spend the night onboard.

Day 5: After a leisurely breakfast, depart Bintang by road.

Some Information I received from Fairplay Gambia who offer these tours in their small traditional boat:

A summary of your Adventure:
Boat trips on The Fula Princess include clean, comfortable accommodation onboard. There are two double bed cabins within the boat and double mattresses where you can sleep under the stars on the upper deck. There is a flushing toilet and local style shower facilities on board.
Your package includes three delicious meals per day onboard the Fula Princess and as much coffee/tea as you like. Along the way, our excellent chef will be sourcing and cooking the freshest and best produce and you will have the opportunity to join him in his shopping, cooking and interactions with the local communities we meet.
Meals will mostly be Gambian classic dishes, cooked to European tastes with the finest ingredients available. Whenever possible we use locally grown organic produce and avoid chemicals and processed foods in our menu. Vegetarians and vegan dishes are available on request.
The price includes entry to the River Gambia National Park and local transport /entry fee to the Wassu Stone Circles and other local attractions
Cold drinks including alcohol are available to purchase on board.

The price per person will be 540,-€. For more information please take a look at

Web: www.fairplaygambia.org
F/Book: www.facebook.com/fairplaygambia

Some words about me :

German, male, 51 years of age, experienced solo taveler, mostly backpacking, this will be my fist trip to the sub Sahara area

please no first-timers to traveling and please no party backpackers, please be used to keep it rough and simple while on the road

Best regards, Marcus
