There may be only one other corner of the planet that offers the beauty and the climate of Santa Barbara. That place is South Africa’s Cape Peninsula.
David Anderson has spent many months exploring this part of Africa and he would like to share this special place with you. David has personally designed the itinerary so that you will not only capture the wonder of this environment, but you will also meet the friendly people of South Africa. We will end this safari in Namaqualand where once a year the desert blooms with millions of wild flowers. For those with three weeks to travel, we have added a few days at two of the private game reserves near Kruger National Park. And, if your budget allows, you may also visit Botswana and Victoria Falls or Zambia where night game drives bring you close to leopard.
David Anderson is not only a safari expert; he excels as a photographer and award winning author. He has traveled throughout east, central, and southern Africa. His latest passion is to facilitate the design of a world that works for all life on Earth. Focus on Planet Earth is using the art and science of visual communication to change our species awareness that will lead to a critical mass of consciousness that all of the answers to all problems can be found in Nature.
David will be escorting this tour along with his friend, Russell Weston.
