Victoria falls to Jo'burgHi everyone, hope someone can help!
I finish up a tour in Victoria Falls on 12th Jan (morning) and have flights booked out on evening of 17th Jan from Jo'burg.
It is my first time travelling in Africa, (have travelled alone in Asia, S. America), but am considering some options to get back to Jo'burg. Am a bit nervous of travelling alone..
Can anyone advise on the following:
1. Train from Livingstone/ Vic Falls to Jo'burg, - I love the idea of taking a Train - I believe i can take part of way and bus the rest.
Does anyone know of this, if it would be safe alone (female) to do this via Train/ Bus. ? What is route? Has anyone of you done it lately alone as female?
2. Alternatively I may take a tour 2-3 days - anyone recommend a few tour companies given that I am restricted on dates??
3. Any other suggestions for my 4-5 days before I fly back? I am up for most things, just want to stay safe!
(My tour is S. Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe - Khama Rhino Sanctuary - Maun/ Okavango Delta /Chobe National Park)
Thanks so much in advance!!

1) You might want tot take the train from Vic Falls to Bulawayo, I heard the views are really good and the price should be around 30 USD. I know from Bulawayo you can take a bus to Jo'burg (proably Greyhound) but I'm sure there is also a train connection. Just check the train service of South Africa!
I would like to advice you on #2 and 3# but maybe you could be just a bit clearer first. From where would you like to do these trips? At #2 Are you in Vic Falls and #3 in Jo'burg?

3Thanks so much!!
Ill try take the train to Buyawayo and then a bus to Jburg.
Any comment how "safe" this trip is for single female? (sounds straightforward enough?). Or even any males that have done it alone?
Sorry but totally unfamiliar with travel in, S. Africa, Zimbabwe..etc. so any comments would be useful, otherwise i might just fly from Vic Falls to Joburg direct...
