And last but most certainly not least, I bring you to the final installment of photos. Though, I’m not going to lie, I have about a billion more I’d like to share. I may need to make a Facebook album so they have somewhere to live.
Though literally every moment of our South African adventure was memorable in its own right, the safari was, hands down, my very favourite part. I, admittedly, had high expectations before we even arrived, and I can confidently say that even they were surpassed by miles.
I’m not sure I’ve mentioned it up until now, but the entire reason for our trip was to celebrate my mothers 60th birthday (yep, she certainly knows how to celebrate!) We splurged* and spent four nights at the beautiful Imbali lodge, right in the heart of Kruger National Park. We have many, many stories (including the time we were almost attacked by a 6 tonne elephant in musth). You wouldn’t believe how close you get to these beautiful creatures. At one point, we were completely surrounded by 32 wild elephants grazing in a field. Two babies began play-wrestling mere feet away from us and I just about lost my mind (there may be a video to come if I get my act together).
The entire trip was, without a doubt, the experience of a lifetime. If you ever have the chance to go, please, please, please do. And please, please, please take me with you. I’m not even close to done with the place.
*A quick note: if you ever go on safari, consider booking through Bush Breaks. You can book incredible, 5 star, luxury lodges at steep discounts.
