The Go Go Grannies cordially invite you to an exciting and exotic travelogue on April 3.

Denise and Allister Pedersen travelled to Rwanda for a gorilla trek and Tanzania for a safari in October 2011.

During their 21-day trip they visited Kigali and then drove 200 km to Volcano National Park in Rwanda for the gorilla trek.

The Tanzanian portion of the trip included visits to 4 national parks including the Serengeti and a tour through the Ngorongoro Conservation area.  The trip concluded in Zanzibar for tours of the slave chambers and spice plantations.

The presentation gets up close and personal with many varieties of birds, butterflies and beasts including the mountain gorilla, baboons, lions, leopards, lizards, weavers,  giraffes,  hippos, secretarybirds  and lilac-breasted roller.

The travelogue is on April 3 at 7 p.m. at the College of the Rockies Lecture Theatre.
