I met Annette and John at the Cullinan Hotel and we proceeded to do a city tour with a safari at Clara Ann Fontein.

After our visit to the Mount Nelson as well as a short tour of the city we progressed to Clara Anna Fontein. Due to the fact that the wind was rather strong we opted to have lunch in the tented village at Clara Anna Fontein. Thereafter we went on our game drive.

After our safari on Clara Anna Fontein we stopped in at Tony;'s Fisheries where I introduce John and Annette to typical Cape Town sloppy chips and fish. Thereafter we returned to the Cullinan as John and Annette were catching a flight to the USA the next day and they wanted to get a good night's sleep.


This tour was too short but alas that was all that the time that we had allowed. The Culmines were a very interesting couple to tour with and I certainly would have liked to have spent more time with them. Cest la vie. We had a great time together and all in all the day was a successful one tour wise in my opinion.

Thanks for a lovely day
 John and Annette.

Dear Selwyn, 

We looked up the pictures you took of us and we were quite surprised about how you displayed them. You made us look like celebrities. J  We cannot stop talking about the most enjoyable and informative tour you gave us.  Hopefully one day we will return Cape Town. 

Have a holy, healthy and happy New Year.
