I have thought about our amazing trip to South Africa many times and have enjoyed telling anyone who will listen about the life-changing experience it was. I want to thank Julie for the incredible attention to detail she provided, which allowed the students and faculty on the trip to relax and really engage in the experience. You had everything worked out and accounted for (transportation, accommodations, food, fees, cash, gratuity, entrance fees, scheduling, potential safety hazards and the list goes on!!). Not having to worry about all those moving pieces was such a gift as we had our adventure on the other side of the world.
For those rainy days when your children can’t be outdoors, visit the Two Oceans Aquarium and Scratch Patch / Mineral World in Cape Town. When the weather clears, pack a picnic and head to Rondevlei Nature Reserve for some bird watching or Boulders Beach to view the African Penguin. A full day sight seeing on the red tourist bus is also a must.
From exploring the souks of Morocco to encountering an incredible array of wildlife on safari in Namibia or enjoying the white sand and turquoise waters of the Seychelles, Africa has something for everyone. Luckily, USA passport holders can travel to many African nations either without a visa, or in some cases can simply purchase a visa on arrival. However, the visa rules vary from country to country and can be complex.
