While in Cape Town, Mrs. Lynch visited Robben Island. Nelson Mandela was held in this prison for speaking out against the South African government. He wanted all South Africans to have equal rights and to be treated fairly. After his release, Mandela became the first black president of South Africa.

Table Mountain is also known as the Sleeping Giant. Table Mountain is a plateau. A plateau looks like a mountain with the peak chopped off it.

Our teacher also went to Zimbabwe to visit Victoria Falls. Victoria Falls is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. It is nicknamed "The Smoke that Thunders". It is almost twice the height as our Niagra Falls.
When Mrs. Lynch returned from her trip, she surprised us with our own safari cars. We used the safari cars to have our own trip to Africa.
