      We had a great time with a well planned and executed agenda. We saw the city, beach, and rural areas including the most prominent tourist sites! The tour guides were welcoming, pleasant, and knowledgeable. Great trip!! I’d do it all over again!

      Wonderful. Kim and Claude did a great job in planning and organizing the trip. Everything was well thought out, enjoyable, and worthwhile. My most enjoyable moment was the the people. The people of Ghana are great. They were very welcoming, polite, and overjoyed to see everyone. I felt at home and in a good place. The city tour was educational and enlightening. Touring the dungeons was heartbreaking but it was great to hear the true story and history about what happened. The canopy walk was thrilling. And our tour guides Francis and Emmanuel were top notch. They went above and beyond in making our visit exceptional. And lets not forget the number 1 Bus Driver extraordinaire! My goodness, that man can drive a camel through a needle with room to spare. LOL He was something else.

      This trip was life changing for me. Being able to see, talk to, and interact with the People of Zimbabwe and Capetown was amazing. I cannot find any “one” adjective that would adequately describe this Journey. It was magnificent. Our stay in Capetown was wonderful, we had 5 Star accommodations and the staff was very attentive. Our stay in Zimbabwe…..OMG! Simply beautiful. Again we had 5 Star Accommodations. Our Tour Guides were exceptional. I cannot sing the praises of this Journey enough!! Magnificent, Life-changing, Humbling and grateful. I miss Africa already and do plan on a return trip.

      Amazing, incredible and awesome are just a few words to describe our trip to South Africa and Zimbabwe. The trip was filled with opportunities to experience the culture, delicious food, must see sights and to connect with the wonderful people from this region of the world. Highly recommended even if you have visited Southern Africa. Abundant Life Adventure Club delivered an excellent travel experience.
