My wife and I signed up for the 12-days African Adventurous Tour (Midrange version) with Safari for all Steven was our driver and he took care of us from beginning to end. Steven was The Best! He always looked out for our best interest and made sure that everything we needed was taken care of throughout the entire trip even to the smallest details. Our trip was during the last 2 weeks of October 2015 so there were short rainstorms every day which only lasted for 30min to 1 hour. We seemed to get lucky with no rain on the days we went Chimpanzee and Gorillas trakking, which I'm so grateful because the main reason for taking this trip was to photograph the wildlife. This was my second time in East Africa and to see all of the Animals with my own eyes roaming freely was absolutely amazing! We paid extra to do the chimpanzee habituation experience in Kibale National Park which was worth every penny. We hiked for almost 2hrs to get to the chimpanzees and because we signed up for the habituation experience, we were able to be amongst the chimpanzees for a good solid 2hrs. The gorilla tracking was even more outstanding! Due to the water damaged roads to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest from the overnight rain, Steven took us to Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. Although the drive on the unpaved roads were rocky, Steven was a king of drifting with the 4x4 and got us to the trail that leads to the entrance of the Park. It was a moderate to strenuous 30min hike to get to the park entrance. Fortunately the park's rangers and trackers start at 7:30am to locate the family of gorillas prior to our hike so we only had to hike for a little over an hour to reach the gorilla family. We were able to get about 5-7ft away from the gorillas (3 silverbacks, 1 female, 1 juvenile and 1 20week toddler). These gorillas were the most gentle giants and so entertaining to watch! Our other activities include a boat ride along the Kazinga Channel where we were able to see an elephant, several species of birds, so many hippos and a crocodile. Took a boat ride around a few of the 29 islands in the beautifully Lake Bunyonyi. The accommodations were excellent and the meals were delicious every where we stayed. The customer service everywhere we stayed were top services as well. I enjoyed every bit of this trip and I consider it the best trip of my life so far. I highly recommend all travellers to travel with safari for all as they are trustworthy and provide great clients service!…

I've been to a few of the exhibits, a lecture and I frequent the Market at least once a month. I love the local support from and for the Alliance for the Arts. It always feeds my soul with a smile.

I have been going to the Alliance for art lessons, art openings and theater for years and I think it is now better that ever. The place is buzzing with energy and full of vibrant interesting people and things to do.

I attended the March 8th All Florida Juried Exhibit. I was disheartened to see something so boldly displayed in the art gallery as the poorly done bust of the President was. It was blatantly obvious this piece of "art" was done with the intention of making fun of the President. I do not like to see/hear anything political when attending these type of social functions, no matter who the president is. I found this to be in very poor taste and I was disappointed to see this at the opening.…
