FORMER DEAN OF SCIENCES LEADING SAFARIS TO AFRICA IN SPRING 2000

Joseph C. Daniel, former dean of sciences at Old Dominion University and a professor emeritus of biological sciences, will lead two safaris to Africa next spring.

Daniel has lived in Kenya and conducted research in different parts of Africa on and off over a 20-year period. Based on his experiences, he helped design the trips in conjunction with Passages Tours of San Francisco.

The first safari, "Passages to Southern Africa," will cover highlights of history, people, animals and geological features in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana, especially the Cape Town region, Victoria Falls and the Okavango Delta.

This trip, which will include extensive game viewing in some of Africa's best wildlife areas, is tentatively scheduled for May 17-31, 2000. The cost will be about $4,950, including airfare.

The second safari, "Passages to Kenya," is designed for animal enthusiasts who want to concentrate on seeing as many species as possible in a short period of time. It will include stays in Sambura, Sweetwaters, Maasai Mara and Nairobi. Game drives, bush hikes and a flight over the Rift Valley will be featured.

This trip is scheduled for May 30 to June 9, 2000, and will cost about $3,700, including airfare.

The two trips can be combined for a discount of $1,000 off of the total cost for both. For more information call 451-2920.
