Daniel, The Lions, and The End Times (Teaching through the Book of Daniel on Safari in South Africa)
April 18 - 26, 2017
April 25 - 29, 2017, with Victoria Falls Waterfalls/Zambia/Botswana Extension
All my life, I have wanted to go to South Africa and take a safari. And to see Victoria Falls in Zambia, the largest waterfalls in the world, first discovered by the great missionary David Livingstone in 1855. But I don't want to go by myself! I want to take some friends along to enjoy it with me. And so--our very special spring tour for 2017!
I have also had many people ask me about doing a series on the end-times prophecies of the Bible. Of course, these are concentrated in the Books of Revelation, Zechariah, and Daniel. And since the Book of Daniel also has a very prominent chapter dealing with lions--I thought it would be cool to combine this trip to South Africa with a Bible study on the Book of Daniel that I will lead every morning before we leave the hotel for the events of the day. We will cover all 12 chapters during the duration of the tour, bringing in data from the Books of Revelation and Zechariah to deepen our holistic grasp of what the Bible teaches about the Return of the Lord Jesus and the end of the age.
We will also fly to Zambia and stay at the spectacular Royal Livingstone Hotel, where we'll visit the massive Victoria Falls waterfalls there, one of the most overwhelming natural wonders of the world.
Finally, I have become more gripped in recent days about the need for us as Christians to have a global outlook and to serve the poor and needy peoples of the world, especially children. In this regard, I am reminded that Daniel and his three friends were all orphans, taken into captivity by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar in 606 BC and brought to Babylon without their parents or any relatives that the Bible mentions. As orphans, they were all alone, but the Lord cared for them in a special way, as He loves to do for orphans, for whom He has a special love and concern.
And thus--after Easter--April 18-26, 2017 (through April 29 with Victoria Falls extension)--this is the tour that we have planned in conjunction with HLP Tours: "Daniel, The Lions, and The End Times."
The plan is not only to study the Book of Daniel each morning, and see real lions like the ones Daniel faced--but also to set aside an entire day on the tour to serve at a local orphanage near Cape Town--so make sure to bring some work clothes!!
I am very excited about this tour and I hope you will be too! As always, we will be working with Ezer Kalmovitcz and HLP Tours in Israel. Anyone who has ever been on a tour with me knows the reputation of HLP Tours for providing the most personalized service, the most wonderful accommodations and food, at the most reasonable prices--and this tour will be no exception!
For the convenience of our passengers, all our long distance travel in Africa is by plane and not bus.
Highlights of the trip include (1) our Bible study in the Book of Daniel throughout the tour; (2) a wonderful day of missionary service to the Lord in helping an orphanage just outside Cape Town; (3) four nights in Cape Town, enjoying sightseeing in one of the most beautiful cities in the world; (4) four safari game drives in open Land Rover vehicles in a beautiful South African Big Five wildlife national park; and (5) our optional extension trip to the spectacular Victoria Falls in Zambia at the height of its beauty in April, where we will enjoy another full-day river and land safari in the famous Chobe National Park in Botswana.
