Welcome to our travel blog In and Out of Africa. It’s hard to believe that one year ago I started planning this amazing adventure to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. But here we are with only a few days until we set forth on our 31 hours of travel to reach our first destination – Cape Town, South Africa.
Our 20 day trip will take us through Cape Town, often called The Mother City, through the surrounding Winelands and 10 nights of safaris in three different countries. We’ll visit a private game reserve in Sabi Sands which borders Kruger National Park and is the birthplace of sustainable wildlife tourism in South Africa. Our next stop will be in Zambia where we’ll view Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world and travel the mighty Zambezi River while staying at a beautiful river lodge. And our final destination is the Okavango Delta in Botswana, the world’s largest inland delta.
We have vowed not to be too connected on this trip so we can be “in the moment” and enjoy our surroundings, the people, the animals and this once in a lifetime experience. That means no email! But we want to document our travels as much for ourselves as for our friends and family. We look forward to reading your comments and having you along for the ride.
