Reality Tours in South Africa
You won't find a safari on this trip because South Africa has so much more to offer. On this alternative, socially responsible tour you will explore the troubling history of this complex country and marvel at how the people have emerged as a unified nation. Many questions however still remain: What has been achieved under the new government and what challenges remain years after the abolition of apartheid? What legacy has the presidency of Nelson Mandela left, and will the ANC survive their third election? Witness the ever-changing look of South Africa as we travel from Johannesburg to Umtata to Cape Town -- from sophisticated cities to traditional rural villages to the townships in-between. In February, we explore the Gandhian Legacy in South Africa. In August we will continue to celebrate the struggle and the role women played in our annual women's delegation. In October, we will dive in a little deeper and explore some of the many development projects that are contributing to the New South Africa and face head on some of the daily challenges of the average South African. Join us this year!

Bicycle Africa
Village-based, exploration of fascinating cultures, ethnic diversity, and the natural and social complexity of Africa. To increase our contact with the basic qualities of the areas we visit the primary mode of travel is bicycle. Thus we explore cultures, historic sites, museums, public art, architecture, religion, ecological niches, and the realities of daily life. Highlights include meeting local people, stays in traditional villages, a myriad of special activities and enjoying beautiful backroads bicycling. The programs are designed to be environmentally friendly, economic beneficial, educational, enriching and culturally sensitive, and accessible to ordinary active people who seek moderate adventure. Many programs have a multi-sport element.
