The past two days have been beyond wonderful! Yesterday some of us experienced a real life Lion King on a daylong safari trip. We ventured 2 hours away and were greeted with champagne and a breakfast buffet, not a bad way to start a Saturday. We then got aboard and headed out to see the animals. We were able to see buffalo, elephants, zebras, ostriches, springbucks and a giraffe, which has officially become my new favorite animal! (I really wanted to take it home with me, I think we would get along quite nicely) We then got served a lunch buffet followed by relaxing by the pool. After all of that excitement we topped off the trip with wine tasting; what a day! I am proud to say I can now cross going on a safari off of my bucket list.
Today was a jammed packed day filled with great photo opps. We went to the Cape of Good Hope, which is the southern most point of South Africa; not many people get to say they've been there so I'm pretty pumped about that. But it was not an easy task to get there. There was a lot of uphill hiking done on very narrow paths overlooking an insane drop down to the vast ocean. I quickly realized that I am pretty afraid of heights! I got over it and just kept walking, knowing that the view would be worth it, which is most definitely was. The views all around South Africa are amazing, but this one beats them all. I felt so free being that high up! These past two days have given me a new found appreciation for nature and all it has to offer.
