Ladies Group Tour, Southern Africa, Sep 2016, Escorted by Jen Lubey
The Heritage Safari Company’s first ‘Ladies Group Tour’ was an exciting 17 day adventure exploring some of Southern Africa’s highlights. We enjoyed spectacular wildlife safaris in Chobe National Park and along the Chobe & Zambezi Rivers as well as breathtaking views of the legendary Victoria Falls.
A few of the ladies visited an orphanage and made generous donations including several beautiful quilts (made by Lurlyn). Others experienced the ‘helicopter flight of angels’ and the ‘high adrenaline activities’ over the falls & gorge for more stunning views. A visit to South Africa’s Soweto Township allowed us to experience the fascinating history, local culture, food and entertainment and even our guide’s family home.
While in beautiful Cape Town we enjoyed a fun ‘Eats Walking Tour’ sampling a variety of delicious local foods and beverages and toured the colorful Bo-Kaap neighborhood. Visits to Table Mountain, Robben Island, Kirstenbosch Gardens, and the Cape Peninsula were wonderful as well as the superb high tea served at the lovely Mount Nelson Hotel.We tasted many fabulous South African wines and enjoyed the stunning scenery along the Garden Route.
Visits were made also to a Penguin Colony, an Elephant Sanctuary, an Ostrich Farm, Tenikwa Widlife Awareness Centre and the limestone Cango Caves. Our accommodations were superb and service and guiding outstanding throughout.
Several of the ladies continued onto the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve spending a few more thrilling days on safari seeing the ‘Big Five’ and more.
