Often described as “The World in One Country”, South Africa is blessed with a diversity of climate, geography, wildlife and cultural heritage not possible anywhere else.   Each day we find new and exciting vistas spread before us: the rolling pasturelands of the Mpumalanga, the rugged peaks of the Drakensberg, the bush with its endless varieties of game and bird life, miles of golden sand beaches, quaint country towns, modern thriving cities and much more. South Africa has undergone a number of tremendous political and social changes over the past two decades, from minority white rule and apartheid to representative government. Today, we find a country that is living in harmony, both with nature and man. We’ll have special opportunities to meet with and to learn from different ethnic groups within South Africa throughout our journey. As our previous departures to South Africa fill extremely quickly, we urge you to enroll early.
