Lise Kargaard

Lise’s wealth of knowledge and experience in the Africa travel industry is intimidating!

She knows her wines, loves photography, and is the driving force behind numerous fundraising initiatives for needy local charities and organisations.

So here goes, in chronological order: Cape Town  –  Beautiful city, interesting, spectacular vistas. Hotel fine, but really due mostly to location. Staff not very competent. David did a wonderful job in […]
