About there Sep 2012 South Africa Tour/Botswana Safari experience
I had intended to send you some pictures much sooner after we returned from our fabulous African trip last fall, but life has just been hectic since then.
First, I must tell you how much we appreciated the amount of time and energy you put into designing a trip for our “not the usual tourists” group!
The variety of activities we experienced was phenomenal! From the Gum Boot Dance in Kliptown to the final impala in Chobe, you packed more into our 3 weeks than I would have thought possible.
And you certainly provided us with the best guides we have ever had. Traugott in particular is a special blend of cheerleader, drill sergeant and magician that made it all work. We were so humbled that he chose to open his home to us, to introduce us to his friends and family, and to speak with complete honesty about life in South Africa.
We have rarely felt such a connection with a country and it’s people, and for the rest of our travels will measure our experiences against the standard of those he (and you) provided for us.
With more than 1,700 pictures to choose from, I had a hard time choosing which to send you, and finally decided to send two messages.
If there are any sights or activities that were included in our trip that you would be interested in seeing images of, please let me know and I can certainly send more. I do have a movie of the waterhole experience, which lasts almost 5 minutes, if you’re interested.
Thanks again for the wonderful trip. We are just finalizing plans for another adventure this summer – Poland, the Baltic Republics and St. Petersburg Just can’t stay home!
PS – Tell Traugott hello from his “assistant” Rick!)
