I'm Going to Africa!

Yep, you read that right: I'm going to be heading to Africa in a couple weeks! 

My babe and I are embarking on a three-week safari tour in South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Botswana, plus a few extra days in Cape Town. All told, we'll be away for almost a month including over Christmas and New Years. 

Our safari route and various stops!

As someone who has always been down for a trip to the zoo, I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to see some amazing animals in their own habitats. And to hopefully ride an elephant because I've always wanted to. And to see Victoria Falls, a place I always wished to see but never thought that I actually would. And to try some new foods and beers, of course!

And while I could go on, I will spare you. But only because you'll most likely be inundated with recaps and reviews upon my arrival home. ;) I'm planning on getting some posts ready to automatically update while I'm away, though I will be unable to reply to comments or emails until I'm home in January. We're going off the grid!

It's still a little ways away and I'm currently all ears so...

Have you/would you ever go on a safari or to Africa? :)

  3. We are hoping to do this for our 5 year anniversary. We have two more years to go. A safari is my husband's dream come true. I cannot wait to hear about your adventures. I would also love to hear about how you planned it.

    1. What a cool anniversary idea! I hope that you guys definitely get to do it :)

      As for planning, we booked a tour through Gecko's Adventures - which took care of itinerary, lodging, and food - so really, the only other big thing to plan was getting our flights there! Will let you know upon my return how the tour ended up being!
