Getting Amped for South Africa

I know. It's a year away. And the U.S. just lost again in the Confederations Cup. Giuseppe Rossi: you're dead to me.

However, it's still really exciting. When my husband and I got married in 2007 we postponed the honeymoon for World Cup 2010. Now it's just one year away, and I'm starting the research and the budgeting.

My resources:
2 travel books on South Africa - See It South Africa by Fodor's, and another one by National Geographic
The Frugal Traveler
Hannah Britton, my friend who is a Poli Sci professor. She makes annual trips to South Africa.

My goal:
To live for three weeks, in Pretoria and Durban, out of a carry-on. That better be the best prepped carry-on known to man, for I am a girlie girl. Yet, my experiences from World Cup 2006 will inform my planning, so it's not a totally hopeless goal.

Any recommendations?
