Journey of Reflection: Our Origin, Past to Present, & Evolving Future
Join us on the three-themed Journey of Reflection — Our Origins; Past to Present; and Evolving Future, as we travel through impressive terrains of South Africa and Botswana.
We start our Journey in Johannesburg where sites and evidence of the first human species share space with a thriving modern commercial and industrial city — a kaleidoscopic reflection of all the complexities of where we have come from, and society's present trends, including urbanization, globalization, and automation. This historic panorama will remind us that resilience, adaptability, creativity, tolerance and humor are the ingredients that should carry us into the future.
We continue our travels for an opportunity-of-a-lifetime, exploring two unique, very diverse wilderness reserve areas where we can reflect on our place in nature and on this planet, that we share with the magnificent creatures we will encounter.
The final part of our Journey concludes at the majestic beauty of the Cape where ancient carved mountains meet a wild open ocean that stretches unhindered down to the Antarctic. Early settlers graced the slopes and folds of this landscape with their trim vineyards and a picturesque style of architecture that combine to provide unmatched scenic beauty. Here, during the Age of Discovery, in the Tavern of the Seas, representatives of all roots of humanity encountered each other possibly for the very first time.
Join us in 2019! Discover South Africa and Botswana on this exclusive Journey of Reflection, and enrich your perspectives of where we came from and where we are going.

Magical Journey in Southern Africa Since 1998
After several years in which we conducted tours to South Africa and Eastern Botswana, in 2012 we conducted a Safari to Gorongoro, the Serengeti and the Gorilllas in Rwanda.
In 2013, we conducted a Safari which started out at the Victoria Falls in Zambia and then went on to the Okavango region of Botswana.
Both these Safaris were exceptional by any standard. It seemed that our groups had exceptional 'Bush Karma' in that in both cases, we participated in experiences that even those who have lived their lives in these regions have not had the privilege of experiencing.
We are also pleased to share that the Namibian Journey in November 2014 concluded with all participants enthusiastic about their unique experience—an exceptional safari and a very special opportunity for avid photographers to glory in the exceptional light and colours that Namibia offers. We traveled from Bush into desert areas to see the desert rhino, along the coast to view seal colonies, out to sea to sail with dolphins and onto the world's largest sand dunes. Damaraland is a photographers dream with rugged desert terrain reflecting light and colours unmatched anywhere.
In 2017, we took a Magical Journey to Victoria Falls and the Okavango Delta, which was like no other! And in 2019, we are venturing again to South Africa and Eastern Botswana!
