Hey, I'm planning to do such an overland in 2007. I've been comparing quit a lot and to me the 2 best (price~quality) are : and Both starting in Cairo and ending in CT, same duration and same price (only a few organ. do the opposite itinary and are mostly more expensive). Differences : with Oasis you have the possibility to add a roundtrip of SA (= 102 days) and Footprint is associated to the Travel Trust Company which is more secure.... There are mostly but 2 departing periods a year : may and november. From Nairoby, there almost every month departing dates....

Greetz and have a nice trip!

Perhaps the Cape Town tourism office can also help.
