We Love Cape Town!

We’ve been so delighted to return to the many wonders of Cape Town. Along with Sydney and Paris, it ranks as a favorite city of ours.

Besides our summit of Kilimanjaro, this was our favorite “bucket list tick” of the trip. It was both thrilling and moving to find and observe these gentle giants in their incredibly lush, remote environment. Mountain gorillas are shy and peaceful animals, and the families that we had the privilege of watching interact with each other had been habituated to humans by daily visits over a period of years. There are only 880 mountain gorillas […]
