I met LivKarin and Roger at De Waterkant guesthouse and we set out on a SA social history & Township tour


We met Mzwake near Stellenbosch and he joined us as we visited the Afrikaans language monument in Paarl


We stopped in for lunch at Cotage Fromage.


We then travelled on to Kayamandi and had a wonderful experience in the township as the below photos show.


LivKarin and Roger join in the singing and dancing with a gospel group we met up with in Kayamandi.

Dishing out apples to the kids of the township



We then joined Bana Bagotso in a rousing sendoff to LivKarin and Roger from the township.

We then moved on to the restaurant Moyo where we had a fantastic evening as the below pictures show.

Having dinner in our private tent.


All in all Mzwake and I had a wonderful day with LivKarin and Roger. I think the day surpassed their expectations somewhat and this made travelling with this wonderful couple through the winelands and township of Kayamandi so much more of a wonderful experience.


A BIG THANK YOU to Jimmy Wallenholt of Worldwide Adventure Norway for introducing me to this wonderful couple

Dear Selwyn,

I don't know how to say thank you for what you and Mzwake gave us that day 
in Kaya! The pictures on your website says it all I guess! I'll send you 
our pictures later today - I need to download them into my computer first. 

Yesterday we spent the last day of the Easter holiday doing something very 
Norwegian - we went hiking in the forest surrounding Oslo - the weather 
was beautiful, sunny and warm, the snow was melted away almost all over 
and the typical spring flowers was already blooming! I love spring!

Once again THANK YOU - I really hope we'll have the opportunity to return 
to Kaya one day and maybe be of some help in the work you do there. I 
know in my heart that God wants me in Africa - I feel at home there. I don't know how or when, but where there's a will there's a way!

Lots of love from Karin
