Dear fellow traveller 

As the sun now hovers lower and lower and less and less each day over the Northern Hemisphere horizon, in southern Africa the heat is on!  

In this issue of Africa Travel we wine, dine and play at the Emperors Palace in Johannesburg South Africa.  

Then we take things a bit more seriously as we take a trip to Constitution Hill, also in Johannesburg. It is a true testament of South Africa’s character that this site--formerly a prison for political detainees including Ghandi and Nelson Mandela - was chosen as the site for the new Constitutional Court in the mid-1990s. The building has won numerous global design awards and houses the biggest law library in the Southern Hemisphere. The South African Constitution begins with the words:"We, the people..."

Join me as I wonder through these walls with their echoes of the past and promise for the future.  

Finally, we head to one of the most extraordinary countries; not only in Africa but the world. Rwanda barely survived the worst genocide in human history 21 years ago but today it is a vibrant, beautiful and thriving country, fulfilling many people’s life-long dream of seeing the highly endangered silverback mountain gorillas in their natural habitat.   

Rwanda is a truly unforgettable place. 

In the next issue we take you to amazing Botswana and marvellous Mauritius so until then, Bon Voyage!
