Project of the Rotary Club of Knysna, South Africa – District 9350

RIFT No 35 group at Camps Bay in Cape Town

The object of the Friendship Tours project is to foster goodwill and friendship amongst Rotarians worldwide, as well as to promote a better understanding of South Africa, its peoples and their cultures.

Since this project was started in 1985, more than 600 Rotarians from 18 different countries have visited South Africa on these tours and lasting friendships have been made across the globe.

Rotarians worldwide are invited to participate in RIFT South Africa No 36. Three nights will be home hosted by local Rotarians in Knysna in the heart of the beautiful Garden Route with opportunities during the tour for Rotary fellowship with other Clubs.

Tour leaders from the Knysna Rotary Club will be Rtn Louise Pannell and Rtn Vicky Tricker.  Louise, who is a registered National Tour Guide for South Africa, has been leading these groups for 28 years.

Top attractions include:

        * Cape Town
        * Cape winelands
        * The Garden Route
        * The Palace of the Lost City - Sun City
        * Luxury Big 5 safari
        * Rotary home hosting in Knysna
        * Rotary meetings & fellowship
  • Accommodation has been hand picked and includes luxury farm accommodation, a luxury private game lodge, as well as 4* and 5* hotels.
  • Transport includes one domestic flight and overland travel by luxury air conditioned coach.
  • Tips and gratuities are included in the price

With the South African Rand still performing badly against major currencies, a visit to South Africa, including a luxury safari, won't break the bank. CONTACT US to reserve your place on a very special Rotary Friendship tour.

To enable you to make the most of your time in Southern Africa, Pannell's Tours is offering a number of OPTIONAL ADD-ON TOURS for you to enjoy before or after RIFT No 36.
