My obsession with going on an African safari started back in the 90’s. Sports Illustrated Swimsuit ran a behind-the-scenes special on the making off the issue, and the team traveled to Africa and went on a safari. I remember watching and becoming completely infatuated with Africa, and I knew I HAD to make it there at some point. A safari in Africa was one of the top things on my travel bucket list.
So, when Phil suggested we head to South Africa this winter, I was thrilled! We chose to spend 3 nights at Kruger National Park and experience our first safari with Robbie from Nhongo Safaris (He is the BEST!). The whole experience was a dream. Phil and I have traveled quite a bit over the last few years, however this experience, hands down, was and will forever be my favorite. Not sure why? Here are 43 photos that will make you want to book a plane ticket, head to South Africa and experience a safari.
