Kruger Park- Culture & Wildlife
Kruger Park- Culture & Wildlife

Kruger National Park, in the Mpumalanga Province of South Africa, is among the worlds greatest nature reserves. It is one of the few places on earth where wildlife can be seen in such great variety and at such close quarters. The park is densely populated by some 520 bird, 114 reptile and 146 mammal species, including the fabled Big Five - elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo. Although in nature there are no guarantees, in Kruger Park you stand the best chance of thrilling sightings of game. From some of Africa’s largest prides of lion, to birds found nowhere else within the country’s borders. The present Kruger Park is immense, covering 19,685 km2, an area almost the size of Wales or two thirds of Belgium. There are more than 3000 km of roads on which to explore the Park. Obviously in a limited time, one can do only so much, however our experience shows us which are the best roads to take at certain times of the year, ensuring you get the most of your visit to the Park. Our tour focuses mainly on the Southern areas of the park, as it has the largest concentration of game.

PILGRIMAGE in the FOOTSTEPS of SAINT PAUL - 14 Days Biblical Tour
PILGRIMAGE in the FOOTSTEPS of SAINT PAUL - 14 Days Biblical Tour

Journey in the ancient footsteps of St. Paul. With his vigor to spread the Gospel, St. Paul spent most of his Christian life traveling from his birthplace in Eastern Turkey to the places throughout the country that he visited, explaining the religious and social context of his life. Most of these journeys were done in the lands of present day Turkey. Our journey starts from Istanbul and heading further East to Adana. Then, trace his missionary journeys, places of sermon and persecution via Tarsus, Antioch, Cappadocia, Antalya, Hierapolis and Izmir. En route, discover the sites of the Seven Churches and many more where St. Paul and his apostles preached in biblical times. Year of St. Paul to be celebrated to mark 2000 anniversary June 28, 2008 - June 29, 2009 Pope Benedict XVI has declared 2008 the "Year of Saint Paul" in honor of the 200th anniversary of the apostle's birth. The year of St.Paul starts on June 28th and millions of Christian Pilgrims are expected to meet in his birth town Tarsus, Turkey. Saint Paul of Tarsus (originally Saul of Tarsus) or Saint Paul, the Apostle is considered by many Christians to be the most important disciple of Jesus, and next to Jesus the most important figure in the development of Christianity.

THE EARLY CHURCH & CRUISE WITH ST PAUL - 15 day private cruise
THE EARLY CHURCH & CRUISE WITH ST PAUL - 15 day private cruise

As the Gospel of Jesus Christ began to spread, St Paul took the Word to Asia Minor, where there were some of the most influential cities of the Roman world. He sailed the coasts of Asia Minor, modern day Turkey, no fewer than three times during his journeys and visited many of the cities there. The scenery has changed little over the last two thousand years, and to sail these seas and visit the sites Paul visited is to experience the ambiance of those heady days of the beginning of our faith. We can follow in the wake of the great Apostle. Our own tours reflect Paul’s role in this epoch-making time in the history of Christendom, combining the milieu of the cities visited by Paul with seas and mountains little changed in two thousand years. Our private cruises along the coasts of Turkey and the adjacent Greek Islands are extremely successful and truly convey the atmosphere of the period, as well as creating a time of great relaxation, contemplation and fellowship.
