I met Ron and Carol at there place of stay (Cape Codogan) and we decided to start our journey together by first going up Table Mountain as the weather was so good and then to follow this with a visit to the township of  Kayamandi.

Sunset on Chapmans Peak - What a way to end a wonderful tour!


The Spiegels just were the best.  What great people to tour with. Both Carol and Ron simply went with the flow and believe me our tour flowed magnificently. We all had a great time together.  We beat the Winter weather wherever it proved to be a possibly stumbleblock and got to see Cape Town and its surrounds in a wonderful manner. All in all this just was one of those tours that you cannot forget.

RON and CAROL

Thanks for generous support for the people of Kayamandi as well as the future sponsorship of the education of a Kayamandi child.

A BIG THANK YOU FOR THE GREAT TIME WE HAD TOGETHER IN CAPE TOWN
