South Africa


We went to a gorgeous wedding at Kloofzicht Lodge. It is a 40 minute drive from both Johannesburg and Pretoria. Giraffes, zebras and impalas could be seen as we pulled onto the grounds of this luxurious spot.

Motswari Private Game Reserve is in the Timbavati which borders Kruger National Park. The accommodations and food were both top notch. And the safari itself was a dream come true. On the very first morning, on our very first trip out, we watched two female lions kill an enormous buffalo. It was horrible and spectacular all at once.

Mama Africa in Cape Town offers up tasty traditional cooking and great live music. This place makes for a great night out.
