They’re here, they’re here!!

They made it they made it they made it!! Everyone is here safe and sound and are all so excited for tomorrow!! Starting with Colleen yesterday, we then had Grace, Madison, Ricky and Morgan arrive this morning. Followed closely by Tori, Arin, Kate, Stacey, Karan, and Taylor this afternoon. Then came Jourdan, Abby and Kayla…



GET HERE ALREADY!!

Hello and welcome to Africa! You’re almost here! I know all of you have been traveling a long way, but we’re going to have an amazing time when you get here! I have even planned a traditional African spit braai (just a fancy word for a BBQ) for you all tomorrow to welcome you properly…



A Walk to remember

Our adventures have come to an end, and we couldn’t be more grateful for the time we’ve had together. Our last day at Thanda was spent doing another morning walk. Luckily, it was only a few hours this time, but we were happy to get up and going again knowing it was our last early…



They were just lion there!

Although it was another early morning and the alarms keep getting harder and harder to motivate us, we were so happy to spend another day hiking around the bush. We went to bed to the sounds of hyenas cackling and whooping near our camp last night, and a few of us even stayed outside for…



Cats got your tongue?

With adventures like this, we have to stay optimistic in seeing things. For instance, today was a bit less climactic as yesterday, and I could tell everyone was a little tired from the day. I like to compare it like this. It’s kind of like a weekend you go skiing. You arrive on Saturday and…



Walk the line

Good old Johnny Cash pulled through for us today as we literally walked the line. We walked and walked and walked and we were in a straight line all day. The day couldn’t have been any better though. Let me just say, what happened to us today is something that is extremely rare. People will…



Tracking and trailing like pros!

It was our first official day at the game park! We grabbed some coffee and last minute essentials this morning in St. Lucia, had breakfast and then loaded everything up in the truck. It wasn’t too long of a drive out here, and we arrived shortly after 11. Our guide, Peter, gave us a tour…

We have just spoken with Team Leader Tara and she and the group are having a terrific time exploring the African wilderness. Unfortunately internet can be a little temperamental where…



OH BARNACLES :-/

Sunday funday!! It’s so funny only having to wake four people up. I always feel like I’m missing people. I’m sure I’ll get used to it soon! We woke up early this morning for another fun day in and around St. Lucia. We went out to a little walk around the game park nearby called…



BUSHBRO’S FINAL FAREWELL

Well family and friends the time has finally come to say goodbye to this wonderful place 🙁 It’s a very sad time for us as it is going to be soo hard to actually get back on that plane because we have made some incredible new friends and feel like this is now our second…
