South Africa Cruise

As of Wednesday morning I will be flying to Capetown to join the “Boudicca” operated by Fred Olson where I am scheduled to do a series of four talks during the cruise along the South African coast to the Seychelles via Madagascar.

On arrival in Capetown we spent two eventful days exploring the town, harbor area and Table mountain.

From Capetown we sailed along the South African coast and anchored in Port Elizabeth. We were lucky enough to go on Safari on two occasions. Err… had an in breath and a close encounter with a Rhino. Luckily it all ended up o.k.

Yes… a close encounter

We were lucky enough to see a host of animals including the usual suspects – Elephants, Rhinos, Giraffes, Hyenas, Wildebeest, Springbok, Water buffalo, etc. Only saw lions in the distance.
