It was a grand experience to take this wonderful foursome around cape Town. Due to their family connections (their children are married to one another) they clicked from the word go and our journey together simply worked. To tour with this foursome was great fun and I can but only hope that they enjoyed themselves as much as I did

Selwyn, 

It was so wonderful to return home to the pictures and note from
you. It brought back all the delicious memories of our trip to Cape Town and environs. Thank you so much for making the trip come alive for us. We loved it all. We thought of you often during our safaris, too. 

We wish you happiness and peace in the new year. 

Thanks again. 

Annie
