Just back from 3 weeks in Marrakech and South of France. 2 great groups and two fantastic times. The next visit to MOROCCO will be in 2021 with the focus on straight Morocco; visiting TANGIER, CASABLANCA AND our beloved,mysterious MARRAKECH .
AFRO COLOMBIA is still in effect for those that care to venture “off the beaten track”. You will have the opportunity to visit PALENQUE (pah link ay) an hours drive from CARTAGENA, where the runaway slaves from West Africa took refuge in the 16th century and where today it remains a thriving community of their descendants. They have their own language and their own schools. After 6 or so visits; I have become the sister to the Mayor of Palenque and they welcome KATTRAX with open arms. The west African flavor is quite evident in their cuisine, their music and their dance. We have started ticketing those that are already confirmed. There is still space to see CARTAGENA, CALI; the salsa Capital of the world and the now cleaned up version of MEDELLIN, where the notorious Boss, PABLO ESCOBAR once ruled. Airfare to all those cities is a mere $675 from Miami. Get in while there is still space. MARCH 13-23, 2020 The land package is $2636 pp.
A VERY HOT AND EXCITING KATTRAX ADVENTURE for SEPTEMBER 2021 is our KENYA CLASSIC SAFARI and BEACH GETAWAY. This one will only allow limited participation for the discriminating travelers. If you thought ZANZIBAR and the SERENGETI was the ticket; check out the link below.
I can’t tell you how it hurts my heart to tell late comers, “Sorry, it’s sold out, waitlist only”.
in a few days, we take off to the Land of the Pharoahs with a Holy Land Extension. Those on the extension are excited about crossing the Sea of Galilee and getting dipped in the Jordan River. Immediately following will be ABU DHABI and DUBAI during the time of the FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX, no doubt the hype will be high. Maybe I will get a glimpse of my #1 driver; LEWIS HAMILTON. I will definitely be packing my MERCEDES PETRONAS gear.
In any case, we will be celebrating a few birthdays: Elizabeth Sherrill-Davis of Sacramento, Lori Medley of Atlanta and Toni Adams of the Bay Area. We plan to have a partying good time
Until next time!
