WOOOOOO! SPRING BREAK IS FINALLY HEEEEERE!!! Oh, I am needing out of Dodge right about now. I mean this whole “in South Africa” thing – yeah it’s pretty sweet, but just because it’s Africa does NOT mean that it doenst get old. Well, STELLENBOSCH gets old. Cape Town is always wonderful. But even that – I’m ready for bigger and better exploring. I’m like Lewis and Clark – with ovaries!

SO – here’s the Spring Break itinerary!! SO exciting.

First – before the itinerary – we’re going to Kruger National Park – one of the biggest game reserves in Africa. It’s got the Big Five – Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Elephant, and…. Rhino. The reserve is huge. All the guide books and everyone that lives here just raves about it and says it’s THE thing you HAVE to do in South Africa. It’s kind of like going to Tanzania/Kenya – you HAVE to see the Serengeti. (OMG i need to see it ANYWAY. NEED TO GO TO KENYA haha)

So here’s a video from Kruger. Um… jump to about 1:15 – the first part is kind of boring and slow. Good luck – I had to stop watching.

I DO NOT WANT TO SEE THAT!!! I jsut freaked out hahaha oh man that is crazy!

07-day-ndj-camping-swaziland-and-kruger-2008.pdfThat’s our trip!

We leave tomorrow morning – well, I guess this morning. Alana and I leave at 11am to go to the airport. We fly into Durban… spend the afternoon/evening in Durban. Stay the night there. The next mornig we leave at 8 to begin our Spring Break SAFARI! After it’s all over the next Saturday (and I’ll have TONS of pictures! hopefully of giraffes!), we end in Johannesburg… where we’ll stay the night there… and fly back to Cape Town Sunday afternoon.

I’m so stoked. It’s going to be such an amazing adventure. I’m really excited to see Kwazulu-Natal. Even though we’re only driving up part of the coast of it – it’s going to be incredible.

I just can’t wait to see how much I see and how much even this one week changes me. 🙂

Happy Easter everyone!

Love you all!

  1. Can’t you just fly home and get your Easter basket? That sounds much better, and safer too!
    Love you,

  2. Kenya is the bomb! In Kruger, there are no wildbeests and nothing is as breathtaking as Observing the Wildebeest River crossings, Carnage mainly result from the stampede drowning and breaking the spines of others already in the river. This keeps the crocodiles bellies happy. I guess they must be impatiently watching their calendars by now for the next annual wildebeest’s migration in the Masai Mara which usually begin their migration in late June To July pouring into Masai Mara game reserve.
