South African Safari!

During our week in SA, we took a 2 day/1 night trip out to a reserve for some animal spotting. Once again, the experience surpassed our expectations, and we had the best time. We stayed at the Aquila Game Reserve.

It was AMAZING! The whole place was a perfect mix. There was some modern luxuries, but it was all purposefully hidden in the landscape from the outside. 


This is the adorable little chalet we stayed in.

After a little lunch, we took our first safari trip out:



See what I mean about the perfect mix of luxury! Bubbles in the middle of a safari? I'll take it!


We ended the day with an amazing dinner, and this!!
The sunset was just perfect. I couldn't look at all parts of the open sky fast enough to catch all the colors. Truly an amazing sight.

We woke up super early the next day, in the so so cold morning, and headed out for another safari drive. The whole truck was bundled up in blankets. It was awesome.

We had been watching this little one almost all day. We kept seeing him walking all over the place, and finally were able to catch him in a good spot.

My pictures really don't do it justice. We saw so much and it was all spectacular. We got to see some lions, which I think were my favorite, but my pictures of them just weren't that good. 

We took a trip over to Aquila's rescue and rehabilitation sanctuary too.

Saw this baby kitty.
