As you know, we are currently in Spain eating tapas, drinking wine and staying out much too late. As much as I love writing and sharing posts, it’s been a struggle to carve out time to do so these last two weeks. The weather has been so nice, the streets have been calling us to wander (that might be the wine, but whatever), and afternoon naps are a must.
Anyway, we finally have some safari posts to share and have decided to split them into a four-part series, each post featuring one of the different reserves we visited on safari. I thought it would be nice for you to experience the reserves similar to how we did. Consider it a virtual safari with yours truly as a tour guide – lucky for you, I won’t be putting out a tip jar afterwards.
Here are the four safari reserves we’ll be exploring:
- Hluhluwe–Imfolozi Park, located in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, which is the oldest nature reserve in Africa and home to the largest population of white rhino in the world
- Lake Manyara National Park, Tanzania – our intro to Tanzanian safari
- Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania – a crater that was caused by an exploding volcano several million years ago, now home to over 25,000 animals
- Serengeti National Park, Tanzania – where our guide referred to as “The Motherland”. We agreed, and that is why we are saving it for last.
The first post will be up on the blog tomorrow — see you then!
Love from Madrid, Spain,
