Exotic Escape: Africa
A Trip of a Lifetime!
Do you have a sense of adventure? a love of nature & wildlife? an appreciation for upscale travel? Many avid world travelers consider an African Safari to be the ultimate travel experience.
Did you know it can be combined with other land segments & a river cruise?

The Zambezi Queen
An even smaller, more luxurious river cruise vessel sailing the Chobe River in Botswana. Would you like to experience Southern Africa this way with only 28 travelers? Sounds good to me!

Do the Soccer-ena! Jan 31
APTA 2009 National Forum in Phoenix, Arizona

APTA 2009 National Forum

Some of you are aware that I am a member of  APTA, the Association for the Promotion of Tourism to Africa. The Sacramanto Chapter of APTA is sponsoring this year’s annual National Forum in our city this June 10-12.

Do the Soccer-ena! Our sports version of the macarena was locally choregraphed by  fellow member Chelsea Nilsen. Check out YOURS TRULY (long hair flying) in the front row left  in the winning APTA  chapter Diski Dance video to promote the 2010 World Cup Soccer Tournment in South Africa.

As the winners of the contest, the Sacramento APTA chapter will receive a cash award donation from the South African Tourist Board and the National APTA chapter to benefit many in Africa through Kiva projects.
