Nobody said Africa wasn't going to be interesting!
Below is the planned itinarary at this point in time!
Ethiopia for approx. 1 month
I will head north to Lake Tana, Blue Nile Falls, Lalibella, Simien Mountains. Maybe Aksum and the Bale Mountains.
Fly to Uganda for approx. 1 month
Places of interest include Ruwenzori Mountains for a 5 day hike, Queeen Elisabeth NP for hippos and crocs, Biwindi to see the gorillas, hike up Mt. Sabyinyo in the Mgahinga NP that borders Zaire, Uganda and Rwanda and probably spend a couple of days on Lake Bunyoni.
Other posibilities depending on time Murchison Falls NP, Jinja, Ssesi Islands on Lake Victoria and Kibale for the Chimpanzes.
Tanzania next for approx. 3 weeks
Hike Kilamanjaro or Meru, probably do some safari or possiblely a hike at the Ngorongoro Crater or the Serengeti and some time on Zanzibar
This takes me to about mid march, I have the following I'd like to do
before mid May and meeting Erica in South Africa - Mozambique island, Victoria Falls, the Okavango Delta in Northen Botzwana (Chobe or/and Moremi wildlife reserve for canoing). Perhaps about a month in Namibia - Atosha NP, Skeleton Coast, Sossusvlei dunes (the real red sand dunes), Fish River Canyon.
The final month in South Africa with Erica and some of the following - Cape Town, the Garden Route, elephants in Port Elisabth, the Drakensbergs, Kruger and then Durban and home.
Let's see how much that changes!
