I will be travelling to Morocco from Sydney in about early/mid January 2017 and I was wondering which tour company would be better? The options I'm looking at are:
Gecko Tours - 14 day Moroccan Highlights ($1,224)
Intrepid - 15 day best of Morocco trip ($1,550)
Obviously value for money is an issue and I want to see all the highlights while I'm there. I've read that with the Intrepid tour some time is wasted where you go to see how things are made and its sponsored by the company so that you…

I've travelled extensively in Africa - about 2 years worth over the past decade, most of it on extended, solo multi-month trips - and the Congo has topped my list of desired destinations for a while. I would love to take a few months & do the full barge trip, but my first "corpo" job & a kid on the way say no to that option. So i was in touch with Congo Travel & Tours about other shorter options for me and they were very helpful. They said I could get a passenger boat from Bumba to…
I'm trying to fly from Kruger (HDS) to East London after a safari on Saturday 9/17. It will be about lunch time. It doesn't seem feasible, as the flights are via Johannesburg, & some have hours of layover (or worse) in JNB. My plan:
----take Ashton shuttle from Kruger back to JNB on the 17th & arrive at 6:00 pm., then get picked up by my B & B, & spend the night, leaving on the 18th in the a.m. for my flight to E. London. It all seems rather roundabout & exhausting.
Any flights from Kruger to…
