Day 14 started with a morning trip to Victoria Falls.  We were told to be sure to have a raincoat, umbrella, and shoes with rubber soles.  I would sugges that a person visiting the falls wear a bathing suit, tennis shoes, and bring a towel.  There is ... Read more >

Day 13

I don't really know what day of the trip this is.  Actually, on Sunday, 3/21, we flew from Johannesburg to Victoria Falls, Zimbawe.  The airport in Zimbawe is a long runway and an old concrete building.  It's a little unsettling.  But anyway, the Victoria ... Read more >

I’ve had some Internet problems so I wasn’t able to post for a few days. I hope I can remember all that we have done. We did a game ride in Hulhulwe Park where we saw elephant, rhino, zebra, giraffe and a variety of birds. It is a lot of fun to go ... Read more >

Today was the day to get out of the city and do the wine country tour.    The wine was not remarkable but the towns and vineyard grounds were totally beautiful.   Two towns were especially nice--Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.   The Dutch influence ... Read more >
