South Africa Trip Report and Many Pics…

Thank you for browsing our website! We hope to have you follow us through our journey.

One of the things I didn’t necessarily want this blog to be was a day by day itinerary of what we did because normally I found the travel blogs I read […]

Kruger National Park

Kruger National Park, or KNP, has to be one of the most amazing self-catered self-tours anyone can do with wildlife. While our time in Mkuzi park earlier in the visit was amazing in a different way, KNP is amazing in that anyone can do this with a simple rental car […]

American Politics Far Reach

It’s hitting already how much the rest of the world follows and knows American politics… better than I. This was evident as we saw a billboard with two local S. African news reporters surrounding guess who – Barack Obama!! We also met three men in the first 2-3 days of our trip […]
