Cape Town, South Africa on the “15 Places You Must Visit” List

gay travel tours Cape Town South AfricaNice to see Cape Town, South Africa make it onto the list of Conde Nast Traveler‘s 15 Places You Must Visit in 2015. We’ve long been an admirer of this beautiful — and gay-friendly — city at the bottom of the African continent. When we started running tours in 1998 Cape Town was in our first batch of gay tours. And we’ve been back with several more groups since then. This year we’ll be there yet again as we kick off our ever-popular Southern Africa Trifecta tour from July 27 to August 6. This trip is a splendid combination of the Cape Town environs; a superb wildlife safari in Botswana; and stunning Victoria Falls.

African country of Botswana makes progress on gay rights front

 

African country of Botswana makes progress on gay rights frontWe’re pleased that the African country of Botswana has taken a step forward in gay rights, allowing a gay rights lobbying group to have legal status. Venture Out has run numerous wildlife safaris in Africa for small groups of gay travelers, and Botswana has always been one of our favorite destinations for a safari. Unfortunately, most countries in Africa lag on gay rights, but this is a recent positive step that could have implications continent-wide.
