It didn’t take long for me to convince myself that I needed to go on a safari. It’s always been a dream of mine to go on a safari (which actually means “journey”) watching wildlife, and sleeping under the stars. There’s something about being in the middle of the great African landscape… Despite having very little experience in the outdoors, and never gone camping in my life ever, I was ready to get my feet wet, in the best way possible.
Despite the amazing time I had at Kruger National Park, I can’t help but feel a little cheated. We drove in open game vehicles on paved roads rather than in the open savanna. I guess I had a preconceived notion as to what it should be rather than what it is right now. A colleague of mine was horrified to see the well-maintained roads that we drove on, saying that it was the case about 10 years ago when she went.
In the future, my goal is to make it to Serengeti in Tanzania – that, I heard, is quite the experience! For now, enjoy the pictures from my trip!
