The Rowan Chamber is hosting this in a once-in-a-life-time trip to S. Africa from October 21 – 29, 2024.

“Embark on an unforgettable journey with us and explore the wonders of South Africa,” said Chamber President Elaine Spalding. She continued, “We’ll start our trip in Johannesburg, the region's economic hub, and explore Soweto's culture and apartheid history, including attractions such as the Hector Pieterson Memorial and Nelson Mandela's House. Then, we’ll head for a safari adventure in Pilanesberg Park, home to the renowned Big Five and a diverse selection of animals, including zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, hippo, crocodile, wild dog, and antelope.”

Spalding said, “We’ll capture stunning photos of the African landscape in a 4x4 vehicle and then travel to the Cape Winelands to explore the vineyards, sample local wines, and stroll through the quaint village of Stellenbosch. We’ll visit Cape Town and Table Mountain, one of the most beautiful cities in the world! Afterward, we’ll witness the majestic Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Wonders of the World and the world's largest waterfall. Finally, we’ll relax with incredible views and amazing wildlife on a spectacular sunset cruise on the majestic Zambezi River.”
