Posted 4:32 PM 5/16/2012 : Where in the World is Mary Peachin? South Africa (soon)!
TUCSON - During the past months, Mary Peachin, our award-winning travel contributor, has been sharing some of her favorite destinations.
Before she heads off to her summer place and work in Vancouver, we wanted to ask her where she'd like to go.
Q: "Mary, what's left on your bucket list? Given a single choice, where would you go?"
Mary: "After searching for whale sharks for two decades, I went on my first tented camp safari in the East African countries of Kenya and Tanzania. I wondered why I waited so long to have this incredible experience.
"South Africa is the top of my wish list and I plan to go there in the fall. Much to my surprise, South Africa Airways Vacation and Destination South Africa are located here in Tucson. I discovered that you can fly non-stop on SAA from NY or Washington.
"The country has great hotel brands like Fairmont, One and Only, Steenberg, Hog's and Hollow and Stanley Safari Lodge.
"I can't wait to view the iconic Table Mountain and Cape Point of Cape Town, drive the picturesque garden route and Hog Hollow's Nature Valley, and Zambia's Victoria Falls, one of the world's wonders. I am excited to see penguins along the coast then safari among the Big 5 game animals of Kruger National Park in Sabi Sabi Game Reserve."
