What did you think I was referencing when I picked Uganda?
but wouldn't that make him more Zionist?

Typical anti Zionist Chossid, makes it to Uganda before he makes it to Israel
Anti Zionist? Herzl wanted Uganda

I think it makes perfect sense. Between the falls and safari, it'd be like a mini SA trip.

If you haven't been to SA, doing CPT only means you'd want to return one day for safari anyway. Might as well do Kruger + CPT then.
there are Game reserves near CPT
OP is arriving Thurs afternoon....
Throw in something like Sanbona or Aquila with a trip to the wine farms

VFA and Chobe is one kind of trip and a week is IMHO alot for that (not that you cant be kept busy) and CPT is a different type
VFA and Chobe can be combined with Kariba Dam or Okavango for a weeks activities

I have heard that many accountants are hesitant to use the "home office" deduction. I have heard this specifically about Lakewood accountants. I've been told they consider it a red flag for an audit.

Is there any substance to this?? My grandfather practiced tax for several decades and told me he never had an audit relating to the home office deduction. He never hesitated using it. Any info would be appreciated!
its a red flag if you use actual expenses that are high
especially now that there is a simplified option

Look into some of the boutique hotels (i have no recommendations)

there is the Gardens neighborhood on the other side of the Table Mtn
there is the Belmond Mt Nelson a short walk from Cafe Riteve and the Gardens Shul (not sure if any of it is open) 15 on Orange is A Marriott Property
I believe Yehoshua talked about this above

You aren't technically allowed to bring it in. I've yet to hear of that stopping anyone.
Biltong to USA? packaged maybe but even that i dont think i allowed , i've had friends get it taken away though, YMMV
Last flight i was on they stopped everyone from the SA flight at customs
they took one look at our pile of suitcases and said "ag man, voetsek" (in english)
