Dear Jim:
If you need a good travel agent in South Africa, I can put you in touch
with Ankia who has been very good for me. Tony Schuman driver/guide is
also superb, and very accommodating, does not mind doing side trips
etc.. Remember if you have more than 6, there are 'Sprinters' Mercedes
minibuses that seat 12+ very comfortable, the break point is right
around 5-6 i.e. VW mini-bus versus Sprinter. This could take care of any
late sign ups. I suppose you will go to HADECO? Do not forget Daan
Barnhoorn in Knysna, he runs a great outfit selling foliage and when I
was last there he was getting back into bulbs. People seem to be scared
of travel at the moment, so many good offers are on the Web. Do consider
contacting British Air and South African Airways regarding discounted
flights, they might be interested. Cheers, John E. Bryan
