Dear travelers & members of the site,
I am a young Austrian female looking for information. I am planning to travel in Africa starting the next week. I choose to visit Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar, South Africa, Morocco and Ethiopia and I will stay for 2 months. Do I have enough time to visit these all places or do I have to give priority for some? Please, someone with a travel experience or information share me.
Thank you in advance for your helpful information!

If taxi - how much should this cost? Can I just get in one at the airport or need to pre-book? Any companies that are particularly good / bad?
