"What you've done becomes the judge of what you're going to do - especially in other people's minds. When you're traveling, you are what you are right there and then.  People don't have your past to hold against you.  No yesterdays on the road."  
- William Least Heat Moon

The Sun is shining, birds are singing, flowers are blooming and South Africa is most probably one of the most exciting and beautiful places in the world to find yourself round about now. How fortunate we are!

Some ideas on how to enjoy Spring and Summer in South Africa:

Quad Biking, experience some action packed riding through different trails with varying terrain, including huge sand dunes, river crossings and forest areas. River Rafting, at the beautiful Phalindigwe Nature Reserve near Hartebeespoort dam you can combine rafting and abseiling including lunch. Tandem Skydiving, one of the fastest, safest ways to be introduced to freefall, let your first skydive be an unforgettable joyride.

Cape Town
Shark Cage Diving from the Western Cape Coast, home to the Great White Shark, where you can spend the day at Gansbaai and head underwater in a cage to meet its most famous resident. A Triple Extreme experience, a three hour adventure package, combining a helicopter flight, a high powered speed boat ride and a sunset champagne cruise to end the perfect adrenaline rush. Learn to Surf on the beautiful beaches of the Southern Cape, with an experienced surf instructor, learn the basic skills such as judging waves, rips and currents.

Ushaka Wet & Wild, a fun water world entertainment centre filled with pools and slides catering for young and old. Kite Surfing, one of the world's fastest growing adventure water sports, there's endless possibilities, your personal kite surfing guide will show you the ropes. The Wild Gorge, situated at the top of Lehrs Falls on the South Coast, one of the highest swings in the world, is an amazing experience that will leave you breathless.

There's so much more to tell you, special deals, more events and activities on offer - but we'd like you to contact us to find out more. A little personal interaction is always fun, so much better than the impersonal click through and book online scenario!

Talking about adventure, I've been invited to join an awe-inspiring journey of discovery, diversity and determination to boost Africa's tourism potential.  Cape to Cape 2009 will include five vehicles, two continents, approximately thirty countries, in eight months, about fifty thousand kilometers and one hundred percent women!
Contact me directly to find out more about this journey.

And last but not least, to the English we say: nah nah nah nah nah :-) Although we do hope that we will still be welcome for World Travel Market! Springboks did us proud. If you don't know what I'm on about - the South African Rugby team won the Rugby World Cup in France recently, and I think we will still be celebrating this for the next few weeks. Now to up the soccer game... With 2010 approaching... Come on Bafana Bafana!

We do have some last minute availability at some of our hotels and lodges for December 2007 and January 2008, so don't despair, drop us a line or give us a call and we will make sure you /  your clients are assisted in creating that holiday of a lifetime.  For the business traveler, there are some lovely new corporate hotels and venues opening at the moment, and South Africa's corporate facilities definitely compare favorably with the best in the world.

I wish you all a super month ahead and we look forward to offering you our superior services and excellent rates - as always!

Kindest Regards
The Road Travel Team
