I have taken two trips to southern Africa, organized and escorted by Joan. Both were excellent.
They were well thought out, well planned, and well organized. The trip to South Africa ranged from
viewing the large variety of wild life in Kruger park, to exploring Zululand, to visiting the modern
cosmopolitan city Cape Town. I was particularly impressed with Zululand an area that I knew little
about. It turned out to a fascinating look at the beauty of the landscape and seeing and meeting
The second trip was to the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana and Zambia. The emphasis
this time was on visiting game parks with their large populations of birds and wildlife. The viewing
of wildlife was excellent. They were spread over larger areas and more numerous. Birding is a
fascinating adjunct to viewing game.
Joan specializes in small group tours. To me this is the best way to travel. You have the chance to see
more and visit out of the way places. I thoroughly enjoyed both tours and also at a very reasonable

In 2011 I went on a trip to South Africa led by Joan Gerber. It was a trip of a lifetime. Joan is a kind,
considerate, knowledgeable and wonderful tour guide. I would certainly travel with Joan again.

Most memorable trip of a life time to South Africa. What I enjoyed the most was the smaller, intimate
group setting accompanied by a friendly, professional and knowledgeable tour guide. Very well
organized but at the same time Joan Gerber was willing to venture off script for some added surprises.
The wildlife, landscape and people of S. Africa will be with me forever. You will not be disappointed.
