Africa is high adventure, pure enchantment, and when
you see your first road sign reading "Elephants have the
right of way," you know you've come upon-a whole
new world. Photograph the earth's most fantastic
animals - not caged, but roaming free. You'll travel
with your Badger Holiday escort who knows the land
and the people; who handles every detail -
accommodations, baggage, transportation - and gives
you the extra care and attention that makes such an
important difference. We leave CHICAGO on January
17 by TWA Starstream jet for overnight flight to
LONDON where we have two days at leisure. Then to
NAIROBI for two days, including a visit to Nairobi
National Park. We spend a night at TREETOPS
LODGE which nestles, literally, in enormous Cape
Chestnut trees. We'll spend a day and night at the
elegant MT. KENYA SAFARI CLUB and see the
greatest concentration of pink flamingoes in the world.
Then to KERICHO, and the vast SERENGETI PLAIN
(we'll picnic there!); to NGORONGORO for a day
exploring the 2,000-foot-deep Ngorongoro Crater; to
LAKE MANYARA for a drive through the tropical
rain forest. You'll feast your eyes on the snows of
KILIMANJARO on our day at the AMBOSELI
RESERVE. Then three days in and around TSAVO
and another three headquartering in MOMBASA.
Finally, a day and a night in ROME before we TWA
jet back to Chicago. Wonderful hotels.. the Churchill
in London; the Hilton in Nairobi, the Excelsior in
Rome... and marvelous food. Our $2,249 rate is based
on two persons to a double room, and includes air fare
January 28 - February 9
12 days $545
Five alumni associations of Big Ten schools reserve the
entire M.S. Mermoz, a luxury French ship with acres of
decks; a stunning roster of shipboard activities, shops
and entertainment; and some of the finest cuisine and
wines you've ever dreamed of. Besides your fellow
Badgers you'll meet dozens of new friends, alumni of
Indiana, Minnesota, Northwestern and Purdue. Aboard
ship enjoy a telephone in your cabin; champagne,
caviar, lobster on gala evenings; a Cinemascope
theater; fresh-water pools; a complete gymnasium;
kicky boutiques with duty-free fashions from France;
deck games; bridge lessons from a pro; even an
extensive library and a continental orchestra. And the
ports we visit are all you've heard of Caribbean
excitement and more! There's an afternoon in PORT-
AU-PRINCE, Haiti's capital city. Another long
afternoon at CARTAGENA, Colombia, an echo of
colonial Spain. Then a stop at SAN BLAS, Panama,
and a hop to CRISTOBAL, Panama, with time to take
an excursion to the Canal or a trip through this city.
We'll spend hours on the smooth beaches of SAN
ANDRES ISLAND, Colombia, and stop at PUERTO
CORTES, Honduras for a day, from which you may
choose a side-trip to Antigua, Tikal, Copan OR a two-
day jump to other glamour spots before you rejoin us at
PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Yucatan. Our rate from Port
Everglades, Florida begins at $545, depending on
choice of cabin. This is based on two-per-cabin
occupancy, and includes all shipboard meals. Please
enclose $175 with each reservation.
