Didn't you express your displeasure about Tauck after your recent Tauck river cruise. Something about never again? <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/duh.gif" alt="" />

The beginning of our cruise did not start off well..but we got past that...and Steve softened especially when he looked at the itinerary of this tour.

I am an itinerary person....if a cruise or a tour...goes to the places i want to see...that's the one i book.

I have done it this way for many years....

I booked the tauck river cruise because of the itinerary...

I booked this African tour because of the itinerary.

We will be going on our first Tauck tour, to S. Africa, this October. We have heard good things about Tauck, from friends that have used them several times. I think we could have gotten a cheaper tour, however I prefer to try to "do it right". We will be going to Cape Town, to two safari parks, Johannesburg, Victoria falls and then leave from Johannesburg.

Would love to hear about it after! We did a trip with Wilderness to Botswana and Vic Falls in 2005 and spent a fair amount of money, but it was definitely worth it!! Enjoy!

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_Town_water_crisis

Luckily it looks like Cape Town has avoided “Day Zero” for 2019 which is the day water resevoir levels are so low they were going to shut off the water to the city. In 2017, it was looking as if it were going to happen in 2018, but they must have gotten some good rains.

Hard to imagine a city of 4.3 million people without running water. 💦
