We ended our journey with a wonderful African feast at the Africa Cafe

 


The Whites and the Corbos were an absolute pleasure to tour with. They simply went with the flow and as a foursome worked very well together. We had much fun along the way while seeing much of the Cape Town region as well as the township of Kayamandi in the most optimal manner when it came to how much time we had together. Overall for me this was a wonderful tour to guide and I had great fun doing so.

THANKS A TON FOR A FAB TOUR

Hi, Selwyn,

We are on finally home and making an attempt to get back to a normal 
routine. Our trip to South Africa and Botswana was amazing and filled with 
so many wonderful experiences. I just wanted to write and tell you how much 
we appreciate all you did to help make our vacation both educational and 
enjoyable. Meeting and spending 2 days touring with you was definitely a 
highlight of our trip.

We are so appreciative of you getting our tickets to Robben Island and all 
the information you provided us even before the trip began. Your knowledge 
and passion for your country gave us a better understanding of the people of 
South Africa and a true appreciation of all they have been through and their 
determination to make a better life. The township tour was certainly an eye 
opener and nothing like I thought it would be. You are truly making a 
difference in peoples lives and I thank you for that.

Hopefully we will get a chance to visit South Africa again and if we do we 
will certainly want to spend time with you again.

Best Regards,
Dorothy & Jim

Hi Selwyn

Whew! We made it home. thanks for a wonderful two days of touring. learning about the history of South Africa gave us a good understanding of where the people were coming from and why townships were created. One of the highlights of the tour was Kayamandi, meeting Lily and all the other residents was truly special, we never thought the community would be as warm and inviting as they were. I admire you and all you do for the people, especially the children. You have a good heart.

Thanks again for everything you do

Norine
