Friendship Exchange visit to South Africa





Members of  Riga Ridzene Rotary club participated in the Friendship exchange program  in the South Africa which took place from February 2 -14, 2019. Altogether  the District 2410 was represented by five clubs.  From Sweden – Louis de Geer Rotary Club Norrkoping, Kalmar Rotary  club, Rotary Club Malme, but from Latvia  – Riga Rotary Club  and Riga Ridzene Rotary Club. Rotarians visited  Jonanesburg, Pretoria, Soveto, Waitriver,  Warmbath and the Kruger National Park.
In Johannesburg, we visited the Museum of Apartheid, the Nelson Mandela House-Museum, the history of civilization museums, memorial museum of white immigrants, open-air museum of ancient tribes (zulu)  and other  places of interest. There were meetings  also with members of Rotary clubs, such as Centurion CoR (Pretoria), Waitriver and Warmbath Rotary Clubs.

Three days in Kruger National Park (365 km x 70 km) were  unforgettable! Our travelers   saw a lot – zebras, elephants, rhinoceros, giraffes, impalas, kudu, buffalo, monkeys, turtles, various birds, ostriches, hippos and  the leopard.

In August Riga Ridzene Rotary club  will meet  Rotary friends  from the South Africa  as guests  in Latvia.
