Johannesburg & Victoria Falls


A Journey of Discovery!



You may or may not know I went to Africa in 2018 and as my friend Barb said…Africa is life altering. Several of us didn’t even have it on our short list. But now that we have been to parts of Africa we are ALL dreaming of going back. It truly is a very special destination. I’ve attached several pictures, some pertinent information regarding this tour and how to join. Space is very limited on Africa tours and I already had a couple people sign up before I finished this information guide. Plus, the sooner you sign up the smaller your monthly payment is. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. Or stop in and I’ll be happy to show you some of the photos I took in 2018, you wouldn’t want to see all of them….I took about a million.

Truly a Journey of Discovery!

04/09/2019 by 2nd time traveler Kathy G.

This trip to South Africa was the most interesting and wonderful trip, and my favorite trip. My two grandchildren and I saw so much, did so much, and learned so  much. South Africa is beautiful and different, the people are warm and friendly all over, seeing the animals up close and personal was unbelievable. I can't wait to go back and do this same trip. It was well worth the cost.


Trip of a Lifetime

The South Africa tour was awesome, great variety of beautiful scenery, coastal views, culture, and safaris. Very well organized, Duane was great! Highly recommend this tour, wonderful way to experience South Africa and all it's beauty.

The itinerary for the South Africa 2018 trip had an excellent variety of things to do and see. You go with the expectation of seeing the Big Five and other animals so everything else I did and saw was spectacular. Hotels were very nice, some more special than others, but very clean and comfortable. If there were issues, our outstanding guide, dealt with it right away., The food was excellent, and once again, some restaurants were better than others. When we ate out on our own, our guide always suggested amazing places depending on what kind of food we were wanting. The scenery which included the vegetation, the flowers, the agriculture fields, the beaches, the terrain and rocks, the vineyards, orchards, etc was also spectacular. Our group was so fortunate to have the guide we had because his knowledge not only of the country’s history but also the present, and the love for his country was embraced by us. It is one of the most beautiful places I have visited. The sunsets and sun risings were amazing. It was sad leaving the country because I truly fell in love with it. It’s a place I would definitely think about returning to.

It was a wonderful fast pace trip that would make your head spin with amazement. I saw so many things and at the end I felt as if I was a part of the country itself. Africa came to life for me. The accommodation were great and the guide was knowledgeable as well as entertaining. Good job. I would love to do it again.


Amazing adventure!

What a wonderful trip, Richard our tour director was a fountain of knowledge as we bombarded him with questions. He made the trip more amazing seeing it through his eyes and experiences. Seeing the Big 5 was absolutely the best. Victoria Falls were absolutely amazing to see. It's a long trip but it was worth every minute of it and I have to compliment GoAhead for making it perfect in every way.
