去年,我有幸與13名家族成員一道前往南非,這次旅行一生難得。至少可以說,這個旅程太棒了。除非你親身體驗,否則幾乎無法解釋你所體會到的與土地、動物和人之間的那種聯繫。

南非比法國、德國和西班牙加在一起還要大。該地區擁有野生動物、沙漠、山脈、葡萄酒的土地、現代城市和美麗的海灘。有這麼多可看的,遊客可用多種方式探索這個國家。無論選擇哪種方式遊覽南非,絕不能錯過野生動物觀賞!若是我們沒有與獅子、豹、長頸鹿、斑馬和狐獴(僅舉幾例)的近距離接觸,我們的家庭旅行就不一樣了。

如果您計畫前往南非,有幾個事情要留意。自預計從南非返回之日起,您的護照有效期必須至少6個月。加拿大公民進入南非不需要簽證,但中國公民進入南非需要。對於健康問題,加拿大公共衛生署強烈建議,您在出發前至少六到八周,去旅遊診所或看您的家庭醫生。

我從事旅遊業已有20多年,很少看到15夜南非套餐降到6000加元以下,所以我真的認為以下優惠活動值得包括進去。■
