Action-packed weeks!

I thought that 2011 started off in a slow leisurely manner, however February has taken my breath away and we are only half way through the month!!

Last week we spent two days in the Kruger Park, which boasts an exciting new conference centre. (Email us if you want to look at Skukuza for your next conference option - max capacity 500 delegates)

We flew into the great new KMI Airport and drove to Skukuza. On Wednesday evening we had a lovely game drive filled with sightings. On Thursday we got up at 4am and met for a walk in the park. What an awesome way to greet the day!

On Friday the first grapes arrived and The Winery swung into motion again.

On Saturday we had a 30th masked ball and then of course on Sunday there was U2. We got home at 3:30 in the morning and my body is still getting over that shock!! However it was well worth it!!

Finally, Monday and Valentine's day! I was treated and spoilt rotten by a bunch of friends - what would life be without them!!

We have got some exciting Adventure News and Activist News as usual - click on the buttons below for more...

Wishing you a good week and weekend ....

Alaskan Cruise ... an unforgettable experience

An Incentive Tour for your team on a Cruise Ship is an unforgettable experience -

One of the exciting destinations that is run during the latter part of the year are the Alaskan cruises. The trip runs from San Francisco along the coast of Canada and the first port of call in Alaska is Sitka, which used to be known as the Paris of the Pacific. The next stopover is Juneau which is the capital of Alaska and then onto Skagway which is the Gold Rush town of Alaska. The last port of call is Ketchikan which is the Salmon Capital of the world.

The Ocean liner that you travel on is
Crystal Symphony, which is a luxury cruise ship owned and operated by the luxury cruise line Crystal Cruises.

She was built in 1995 in Turku,Finland.[1] and has only one fleetmate of Crystal Serenity.
These ships have been constantly voted as the world's best cruise ships by the Travel Magazine, Conde Nast Traveler. In 2003, Conde Nast Traveler called the ship "The Best Medium-sized Cruise Ship in the World",[2] an accolade later given to sister-ship Crystal Serenity.

In January 2010, Crystal Symphony again got the 2nd spot in Conde Nast Traveler's "Best ships in the World" list, next to Crystal Serenity, out of 90 ships worldwide.[4]
