Kathy’s Smilebox, Pictures of Cape Town

Smilebox_4107503118Kathy has put together a Smilebox slide show of her pictures of Cape Town and the surrounding area in South Africa, Oct. 2012.  Kathy and Richard, Rachel and Gene stayed in bed & breakfasts near Cape Town and did some extra touring for a week before we arrived.  What a great collection of photos.  Thanks for sharing, Kathy!

Hello Africa!

Jim and Debbie, Richard and Kathy and Gene and Rachel toured South Africa, Swaziland, Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and Chobe Park in Botswana with SmarTours in Oct/Nov 2012.  Seeing African animals in the wild has always been one of Debbie’s dreams.  Jim prefers cities, history, culture and food.  So the trip was magnificent for both.  South Africa, Swaziland, Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and Chobe Park in Botswana are great places to tour, travel, visit. My wife and I, our friends and our tour group traveled safely, enjoyably throughout our trip. Our guide in South Africa was Ron McGregor.  There was no bad news to recount and lots of most enjoyable adventures.  I find southern African nations to be…. intriguing.  View News SA and News Zim pages to see what’s been going on in these countries since Feb. 2013.
