Africa Travel Blog (9/10/22): Kruger National Park Safari

Africa Travel Blog (9/10/22): Kruger National Park Safari

Hello from Kruger National Park! Today was our last full day on safari in the Greater Kruger National Park area and I wanted to spend this post talking a bit more about my thoughts on the animals we have seen on safari as well as how I think safari in Kruger compares to the safaris that I went on in Tanzania. Until you actually go on safari in Africa, it is really hard to understand just how incredible it is to see these wild animals in their natural habitat. The behavior of the animals is different, and the experience is much more intense than seeing these animals in a zoo. And while the experiences that I have had on safari are very similar to my safaris in Tanzania in many ways, in some ways they also couldn’t be more different. I am very much looking forward to sharing more about these experiences with you.

Africa Travel Blog (9/9/22): Our First Full Day in Greater Kruger

Today we continued our time on safari in the Greater Kruger National Park area. After five long years, it is great to be back in Africa and back on safari. There is something so profoundly spiritual about being in such a wild place. The sound of the African bush at night is something that has left an imprint on my soul and is something that will never leave me. I remember feeling so alive when I was in Tanzania back in 2017 and heard hyenas outside our campground at night in the Serengeti. I got the same feeling when I went skydiving in New Zealand and when I went paragliding in Peru. It is a feeling that I have been chasing ever since I took my first travel adventure, and I am so happy it is back.
