after a wonderful experince at the island one can have cirios to take home and share with their loved ones.......these range from beatiful sculptures to t-shirts with the face of nelson mandela...whata amazinfg is the stores are owned bt locals who are able to communicate in any language that you need assistance in. the curios that you will find over here are made proudly south african.which meeans that the money made stays within the country.....i find that to be very amazing.which also shows tht the destination actually creates jobs for the local youth and the prison would need abit more qualified people to do the tours which would mean students out of school.the stores actually cater for those un educated adults who desperatly need jobs............ read more

Here's my suggestion of a real enlightening and breathtaking experience in South Africa that will probably be my next journey in 2013! South Africa is mostly famous for its main national figure, Nelson Mandela, his successful struggle against the apartheid or even the Springboks (rugby’s national team), but there is also a wide range of breathtaking and enlightening experiences from safaris and diving with sharks to food and wine tasting and other cultural activities. I’ve prepared a special itinerary for a 7-day wine and food tour through the South African Cape Winelands – from April the 1st until April the 8th. The price includes round-trip flight from Paris, 4-star accommodation in Cape Town, 3 day wine tour plus 2 half day activities, insurance, airport transfer and all the taxes and it will be 1650 € per ... read more

The morning after the night before began with the squawk of the Hadida (an Ibis), how long it will reign as master of the morning remains to be seen. The boys have started to collect an arsenal of slingshots and are plucking (pun intended) up the courage to initiate offensive operations. After an early breakfast Peter our guide for the day met us at 8am to board the bus to go up Table Mountain. The views were simply stunning it would not have been possible to select a better day if you waited a thousand years. Nasser (Nasser) got his picture taken with a lone Dassie and looked set to set-up home until the Ghost snatched him away. Ears looked resplendent in his Bare Essentials swimsuit (Discount available for blog readers, how am I doing Cheryl), ... read more

Hi Everyone We have had some difficulties with the Facebbok Blog - it's just not really set up for blogging! Instead we'll be updating this blog each day. You can either just check back to this address each day - or you can subscribe to this page to receive an email each time we post a new message. On the right hand side of this page there is a subscribe button - you can work the rest out I'm sure. The blog from yesterday - which went really well - will be up in a few hours. We're a bit challenged on the IT front still and have to install some triple redundant servers/high speed data cable or something before we can upload the full blog. We'll post on facebook when its uploaded - or you ... read more

Yesterday one of the locals we met said...' in Cape-town just wait and you will get all 4 seasons in a day' .....and today (Saturday) we experienced just that. We awoke to a rain storm that by the time we had breakfast turned into a warm sunny lunch time it was getting windy and by four o'clock it was cold .... The weather has been pleasant but not warm enough for me..or sunny enough. Of course we leave Cape town Monday when another week of sunny skies starts. Michelle on the other hand is in heaven...she thinks anything above 55 degrees F is evil.... needless to say she is in shorts while I am bundled up in my coat and long pants. We started our first full day in Cape Town with a yummy breakfast ... read more
