This was an amazing tour. All in the group got on so well with one another and together we had four incredible days of fabulous experiences ranging from township travel to wonderfully scenic travel to winetasting and golf. On this tour everybody was determined to have fun and so it turned to be as there never was a dull moment on board. Most important was the fact that while having such a great time we also got to see so many of Cape Towns very special places. Overall a great tour.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH

JOAN, STEVE, JUDY, STAN, PETER & MARGO.

Thanks Selwyn. 

We too enjoyed our tour with you. Your personal interest and love for your country made the trip really special. We had two great spots for our safaris after we left you and are now just home. I am trying to catch up on my emails now. Keep up your great work in Kayamandi. People like you can and do make a difference in changing the
world for the better. 

Peace.

We have been back stateside for a week, but it has taken almost that amount of time to get rid of our acute jet-lag! Needless to say, we had an unbelievable time. Thank you so much for your showing us your city and its environs. You showed us and taught us so much. It is so obvious  that you love what you do and take so much pride in your work and in your country.

Our safari experience was terrific too... I must confess that our Londolozi Granite camp was brand new (open less than 1 month) and gorgeous. After  experiencing the township with you, we all felt guilty about our indulging in such 
luxury!

Everyone sends their thanks and best regards. You truly helped make this trip such a memorable one for all of us.

Fondly,

Joan King

PS Susie and Howie are expecting a second grandson I know they were with you when they found out the sex of their first grandchild.
