This Africa safari tour operator customized a wonderful itinerary for my family of four to Africa for 21 days. The vacation was in 3 parts - first part was an intense action packed itinerary in Cape Town and surrounding areas in South Africa; the second part was a collection of 3 safaris in South Africa (Kruger), Zambia (Livingstone) and Botswana (Chobe) and the final part was a trip to Cairo and Luxor in Egypt.
I would like to credit the safari travel company's team for their attention to detail in carefully planning the layovers, accommodations and transfers. Everything fell into place perfectly. The guides and companies they outsourced for the various parts of the trip were very knowledgeable and friendly.

Plan for more time in Egypt beyond Cairo and Luxor. Unfortunately for the local population dependent on tourism, Egypt's tourism has taken a hit since 2011 due to political events. However, as visitors it was enjoyable to not wade through crowds and have the monuments pretty much to ourselves.
Contingency planning for activities that could get canceled due to bad weather.
