South Africa is a compelling land of contrasts.  Kruger National Park is one of the great natural sanctuaries of the world, with magnificent wildlife and diverse game camps.  An African safari is an eye-popping, mind-bending, life-changing experience.  The game drives challenge the artist to convey the interaction of the animals and their remarkable behaviors.  What a privilege to be a visitor in their world, where magical moments are commonplace!

Cape Town is a beautiful city on the water, cradled at the base of imposing Table Mountain.  The Cape's rugged shoreline and white sand beaches reach to the bottom of the continent at the Cape of Good Hope.  There are dignified government buildings in center city, and a vividly colorful neighborhood filled with Georgian style houses that line cobblestone streets, called Bo-Kaap.  Inland lie the Cape Winelands, with wonderful wines from hillside wine farms.  Its Cape Dutch architecture symbolizes a rich history of wine making dating back to the 1600's.  Today the Dutch heritage is renewed with heralded names like Constantia, Stellenbosch and Franschoek.
