To quote from our former President Thabo Mbeki from his speech to celebrate Africa Day:

“I am an African.

I owe my being to the hills and the valleys, the mountains and the glades, the rivers, the deserts, the trees, the flowers, the seas and the ever-changing seasons that define the face of our native land.

My body has frozen in our frosts and in our latter day snows. It has thawed in the warmth of our sunshine and melted in the heat of the midday sun. The crack and the rumble of the summer thunders, lashed by startling lightening, have been a cause both of trembling and of hope.

The fragrances of nature have been as pleasant to us as the sight of the wild blooms of the citizens of the veld.

The dramatic shapes of the Drakensberg, the soil-coloured waters of the Lekoa, iGqili noThukela, and the sands of the Kgalagadi, have all been panels of the set on the natural stage on which we act out the foolish deeds of the theatre of our day.

I am the grandchild of the warrior men and women that Hintsa and Sekhukhune led, the patriots that Cetshwayo and Mphephu took to battle, the soldiers Moshoeshoe and Ngungunyane taught never to dishonour the cause of freedom.

Being part of all these people, and in the knowledge that none dare contest that assertion, I shall claim that -

I am an African!”

GUEST COMMENTS

  • I would just like to complement  and thank you for our wonderful experience during our trip to the Seychelles during the last week of February. We were so lucky… on our arrival we got upgraded to a garden cottage. The weather was perfect and the staff of 7 Degrees South were very helpful and friendly. Like you said the marathon was definitely not for the fainthearted. I was so fortunate to come 3rd in the 42.2km. Thank you for the pleasant experience dealing with you. This is a break we will never forget. Regards Andriël

  • “Dear Tracey and Alan,

    Sorry for the long delay in getting back to you, but after our return my daugther arrived and we have been so busy with one thing or another.

    We had a WONDERFUL, INCREDIBLE trip and I just want to thank you again for arranging it. I did not want to leave Chobe even though the river was high and the animals didn't need to come down their to drink but we managed to see so much. The hotel was fabulous and the staff so lovely and friendly. Vic Falls, well that is just unreal and we had a super time there too.”

  • “I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and the team for arranging such a superb trip to Tanzania for us.

    The whole trip flowed exceptionally well and the accommodation was spot on in terms of location and quality.  It is no easy feat second guessing the likes and needs of a party of three (with one elderly mother in tow) but I felt that you and the team truly got the balance just right.

    I am also extremely grateful for your swift and helpful follow up with the mishap over the balloon trip. Often a tour company is nowhere to be seen once you have paid over the money and I was truly impressed with your desire to help us resolve the issue with Lemala in such a satisfactory way.

    We are very much looking forward to going back for the balloon trip and tying that into a trip to Rwanda and hopefully Lake Nakuru (assuming it hasn't dried out by then!) and I will be in touch shortly in this regard.”

  • “Allan, I so apologize that this has taken so long. What an AMAZING trip we had! From start to finish, South Africans were the most hospitable people of anywhere we've been ever! And the beauty, as you know, is stunning -- everywhere. This is the first place in the world where Jay said – we have to come back here -- this place is really special. Jay took over 4000 photos... Thank you SO MUCH for all of your recommendations and help!”
