  • Description

    Party of over 100 Americans on luxury caravan tour of Africa after first long leg of their journey form Capetown arrive in Johannesburg, this is the first time S Africa has seen a party like this. They hope to pass right up Africa and to be in Jerusalem for this coming Xmas, then on up thru Europe to the arctic circle before going home to America. They do not eat communally, they all live separate lives in their own caravans, they do not pay anyone for the trip, meet own expenses and pool a small kitty for the few things they do as a whole, Mr Byam calls it a small Democracy. The air around Johannesburg was full of radio searching for them today when they failed to meet appointment at border of Jhbg, they could not be found for some time as they took occasional wrong roads until traffic police took them in hand, caravans all shiny aluminum except one that is gold coloured, they contain all modern conveniences for luxury living.
