Aug 1, 2011  |   Contributor: Katherine Bond

African Safari Adventure | Sanctuary Olonana

Aug 5, 2011  |   Contributor: Katherine Bond

This is my feeble attempt, if not my urging, to encourage a stay at the Sanctuary Olonana.

Cape Town in Three Days

Chic and exciting, historic and endearing...Cape Town can be seen in just three days, (but should be enjoyed for many days longer).

DC’s "Snowpocolypse 2011" had us stranded in a taxi for nine hours (with the meter running) instead of flying over the Atlantic Ocean, leaving our long awaited trip to South Africa two days short, allowing only three days in Cape Town.

Getting down to business, I carefully drew a plan to ensure that I would see as much as the city as possible in a short amount of time. A success!

Inhabited by Dutch settlers, the Afrikaans, Zimbabwean migrants from darker days of oppression, and nomadic expats, Cape Town is nothing short of a... Read More
