I'm looking to travel from Kenya to South Africa in the last half of 2013.
I was planning on doing a topdeck tour from Nairobi to Johannesburg.
However if I can find a travel buddy, would prefer to do a similar trek independently (Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Zimbabwe, South Africa: visiting all the major national parks and landmarks along the way).
I would also love to do some volunteer work, involving the community and wildlife (am currently doing a major in zoology and need some practical experience) along the way.
Thinking anywhere between 3 and 5 months, depending on the money situation and whatever comes along.
If you have any advice, or would like to join me let me know,


[ Edit: Sorry, no promos please. ]

In Kenya you can go to Masai Mara, Lake Baringo, Lake Naivasha, Hell's Gate National Park. These were my favorite places last winter when I was there last january.
