i still have to post pix from my last South America trip!!!!

anyway, here is my future trips if anyone wishes to go.

updates for the remaining year.

I will be returning to South America in early december for anyone who wishes to come along.
you can bring back fish. pick the right fish and it will pay for your trip.
cost is roughly 1500-2000 for lodging, permits.
airfare out of LAX is about 800-1200.
bring back ten pikes, and ten Hoplias and that should pay for your trip!!!

Africa....
I will either be going to just Malawi end of September....both Tanganyika (after a week in Malawi),...or just Tanganyika.

Malawi runs about 1800 for diving, lodging for about 8 days. Plus about 2200 air out of LAX.
Tanganyika runs about 1600 for 7 days lodging, dives, etc. Plus about 1800 for air.
If we camp/tent in Tanganyika (instead of the chalet's) i can get the lodging cost down to 1000, which means for about $3000 you can do Tanganyika for a week.

A combined three week trek in Tanganyika and Malawi will run about 6500.

You won't be able to bring fish back from Africa, but you can do something that few others will.

Africa is more of a SCUBA/Photography type trip.
South America is more of a rugged/river fishing/ cichlid and catfish collecting type trip.

Madagascar has been put off till 2014.

Let me know if you are interested in any of these two trips.

I attended the CCA Aquamania event up in MD about 10 days ago. One of the speakers was Ken Davis. He had two presentations covering his collecting trips to Honduras and Uruguay. Looked like a fun time!
