Preview of Cape Town, 2006

Oregon has turned cold and wet. And I'm sure many of you are similarly dealing with temperature drops and the onslaught of Winter. Time to think of sunny days ahead and kite plans for next year.

Table Mountain

Who wants to join us in France and South Africa??

In September, we're organizing a team to the Cape Town International Kite Festival. We'll tour the city, climb Table Mountain, visit the wine country, spend an afternoon at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, fly with kids in Kyalisha Township, drop in on the Penguins of Boulder Beach, take a boat cruise to Seal Island, and then join the best kite event in Africa.

Enroute to Cape Town, we'll stop for three days at the huge international festival in Dieppe France.

But wait -- there's more!

After five days in Cape Town and two at the festival, we'll head off for Port Elizabeth and the Kite Safari. Our destination is Kareiga Game Reserve where they boast "abundant game and wildlife such as lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, rhino, hippo, giraffe, zebra, eland, wildebeest, waterbuck and a variety of antelope, as well as a myriad of bird species."

We'll tour the parks in open Land Rovers, and ride horses to the beach. And maybe, just maybe, we'll get chased by an Elephant or Rhino... (Click here for the rest of that story.)

What the price?? About $2900 per person for hotels, guides, domestic transfers and transportation, and most meals in South Africa. International airfare and the Dieppe add-on are extra. Let us know if you are interested.

We've been to South Africa twice. We look forward to renewing friendships and spending time in a country with incredible vistas, a rich culture, and warm, wonderful people. Check our Updates from April 2002 and September 2004.

Gecko

Susie's Annual Birthday Sale!!

In two weeks, I'll be whisking Susie away on her annual surprise birthday trip. The trip isn't a surprise, but the destination is. We drop a wad of frequent flier miles and take off for someplace exotic and romantic. The best part is traveling with only carry-on baggage!

We invite you to join the celebration! No -- you can't come along. But to share the joy, we'll mark down any of our mid-size Peter Lynn's by 20% between now and the 10th of December. Choose a Gecko, Fish, Cat, Octopus, Bear, Turtle, Ray, Squid or Trilobite. Choose the colors too. Then take off 20%. Call early and we'll even arrange delivery for the holidays!
