We are so excited that you will be joining us in our upcoming South African Mystical Journey for January 2024!! Here are all of the details again for your convenience.

Please make all responses to us regarding this tour to this email address firstname.lastname@example.org . Please use this email address and not Facebook or other social media, as it can be a challenge to coordinate everything with responses coming in from various areas.
FLIGHT DETAILS: It is usually less expensive to make your roundtrip international flights into Johannesburg (JNB). Therefore, you will need to make an additional flight reservation from Jo'burg to Cape Town (CPT), where our tour begins. Alternatively, there are now direct flights to Cape Town on Delta Airlines from Atlanta.
The tour starts on January the 8th, 2024. Most people prefer to fly in a day or 2 earlier, to rest up before the tour begins, in which case your flight should arrive into Jo'burg or Cape Town on the 6th or 7th, and connect to a flight to Cape Town (CPT). You can do a search for direct flights - availability varies from your point of departure.
Our tour ends in Port Elizabeth on January 21st, so you will need to book a flight from Port Elizabeth (PLZ) to Johannesburg (JNB) or Cape Town (CPT) to connect with your international flight on that date. If you are choosing to stay in South Africa beyond the end of our tour on the 21st, you are responsible for making your own arrangements.
The hotel we are using in Cape Town is called "Hollow on the Square" website here: https://www.hollowonthesquare.co.za/
If you choose to arrive early to rest up before our tour begins, you can book the extra night(s) directly from Booking.com or a similar website.
We will be happy to pick you up from the airport whichever date you fly in. However, please send us your flight itineraries so that we know when to pick you up from the airport in Cape Town.

Another Planet - South Africa began these special and mystical journeys to South Africa in January 2015. Out of the many journeys we have done all over the world, this is by far the best yet!
This journey will take you from the cosmopolitan streets of Cape Town to the magnificent landscapes of beautiful beaches, majestic mountains, Safari’s & lush wilderness.
The beauty of South Africa is truly spectacular, and the overland route we will be taking along the coast from Cape Town to our Safari near Port Elizabeth is absolutely magnificent. There will be many opportunities to see the amazing wildlife and scenery, join in a traditional South African “Braai” (barbeque), visit the San People who are the oldest inhabitants of South Africa who date back at least 20,000 years. as well as many other adventures, and you will be accompanied by native South Africans and a marvelous group of our personal friends.
We also will be working with our beloved Sangoma (traditional African healer) Lindy Dlamini, who will be spending a few days with us on our upcoming tour in January. We will also be working with our Grandfather medicine in full ceremony, in The Garden of Eden, as well as daily micro-dosing.
Also, please note that a part of your payment will go to support the street children’s project, Masizame, that Lesley started in the 90s.
We are always looking to improve on our past accomplishments, so we are thrilled to tell you that we are now including a couple of very interesting additions to our tour for 2023. Please see the itinerary which is attached for all of the exciting details on the places we will be visiting, inclusions and pricing.
