I met Tracy and Mark at their apartment in De Waterkant with the intention to discuss their tour plans for the next couple of days with them. As the weather was perfect we decided to ascend Table Mountain so as to be sure we could make the journey as the weather for the days ahead were unpredictable in this regard.

We started our Peninsula tour by travelling to Muizenberg where Mark and Tracy had an opportunity to feel the waters of False Bay

We spotted zebra on the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. This was the third time in 13 years of tourist guiding that I saw zebra on the reserve and to top it we saw a mother and baby zebra.

What a fantastic couple Mark and Tracy were to tour with. What a wonderful tour we had together. Overall it just was great, great great. We had lots of fun together and experienced many events while travelling through the Cape Peninsula. Tracy and Mark's friendliness and willingness was the key to that our tour such a successful one. They wanted to learn as much as possible of South Africa and so they did. While doing so we all had the time of our lives.



A special thanks goes to Brian Schultz for introducing me to this wonderful couple.
