  • Questions for British

    As promised (warned? :) ) I have some questions since this trip is high on my list. • Did other arriving travelers also get transported by boat from the Livingstone waterfront to the Royal Livingstone? • Since Sept is about the driest time, how was the flow over Victoria Falls, still picturesque? Was there any of the renowned billowing, mist that can drench even people wearing rain parkas on the walkway? Could you see the entire falls from the walkway? • How about the water level in the Okavango delta (and Moremi area?)- were there still plenty of navigable channels to investigate by boat and makoro (dugout canoe)? • Did the low water level result in the animals being more concentrated? • Now that you have been on 4 African trips, could you please rank them by the quality and quantity of animal sightings? • In view of another recent thread, what animals were present on the grounds of the Royal Livingstone? • Did any animals enter the camps and come close to your tent during the day or night? (In my case it is something I actually look forward to!) • You already said food was good at Camp Kalahari, can the same be said of Eagle Island and the others? • Did you do the Meerkat experience? A Tauck traveler reported on another website that they had time the following morning, before heading for Maun, to return for a second brief encounter with the Meerkats. Was that an option on your tour? • Did you fly from Maun non-stop to Cape Town or via Johannesburg? • Since it is no longer listed, I assume the "walk with lions" encounter has officially been eliminated from the itinerary? • Did you discover anything new and/or interesting to do in Cape Town this time? Thanks!

    Muleman, I looked at the usual places here on the Tauck website for your tour under Before You Go and Accomodations where mention of WIFI availability is usually mentioned and can't find anything (you may have already figured that out). Since it's been several days since your post with no helpful answers from past travelers you can either call Tauck and ask them or go to the actual websites for the hotels themselves and see if they list it. I looked at the Four Seasons Lisbon and it states that standard WIFI is complimentary. jackki james, this is a forum for people who travel with the Tauck company - not a general travel discussion website. The hotels have already been chosen for the tour by Tauck so muleman doesn't really have the option to change. If you just want to chat about travel in general you might want to find a different site.

    Slept you know where. Desperately wanted to sleep au naturel, but did not want to shock the others, but there was a German lady who is very like minded. Slept easily au naturel without being cold in all locations. In Cape Town now, taken it easy this afternoon with a light stroll around the Victoria and Alfred waterfront. Many changes since we were last here and construction going on. Arrived yesterday in glorious sunshine but this morning it was very very cloudy and we just had to imagine what Table mountain looked like out of our window. It is cold too. Heading for the Braii soon.

AHHH! Fall has arrived, and what a relief! September has broken the iron grip of the Dog Days and brought in those moderate days when conditions seem perfect for human comfort. A cool breeze caresses your cheek. The sun has taken on a new, softer and lower angle, casting long shadows that emphasize the features of everything its oblique rays fall u...

My friend Dan Mahar, the CEO of Tauck, has a name for something that is very important to him, as it is to me. Dan calls it “Vitamin N.” Simply put, it refers to the health-promoting benefits of nature.
