Africa Awaits Janice But Is Africa Ready? (Page One)

It's a five country African Adventure October 10-22, 2016. Hang on, it is going to be a wild ride! The itinerary was busy... It is called “wildlife to wine” five-country tour of Africa.

In just two weeks, we experienced an adventure of a lifetime. We started off with gorilla trekking in Rwanda, a visit to the genocide museum in Kigali, onto Victoria Falls and safari adventures on the mighty Zambezi River in Zimbabwe, a safari in Chobe National Park in Botswana, a tour in Zambia and then to the beautiful wine country of Cape Town in South Africa.
