Sometimes, pictures speak a thousand words so I’ll let the photos from South Africa do the talking here…

    These are absolutely beautiful photos, Monica! Makes me want to go to South Africa even more – which I didn’t think was possible! 😀

    Looks like you had such an amazing time. 🙂

    I especially love the rip diet brownies and the beaded animals… and trust you to get a photo of such an amazing sunset!

      Haha, of course! I’d be devastated if I ever went away and didn’t get an amazing sunset photo. Which reminds me, I haven’t seen any of your gorgeous sunny Australia pics for a while!

  3. Wow, lovely photos. Makes me even more excited to go there in April! (I agree with Nicole about the brownies – I hope you tried one!)

      It was incredible, you’re going to have such an amazing time. When are you going to Africa and where abouts are you going?

      They really were so chilled out. I thought they’d run a mile when we got close but they’re so used to the vehicle that they don’t seem to mind you being close at all. They were just chilling out in the sunshine and loving life!

  7. Great photos – love the animal photos but the city photos are great too…. love the cheeky brownies.. now Im craving sweets

    It looks like you had an amazing trip, and you have some incredible photos to show for it! You’re very lucky to have seen the big five – I’ve done 4 safaris in South Africa and still haven’t seen leopard! Glad you were in luck!

      The leopard was definitely a lucky spot, I’ve heard a lot of people say they didn’t see one. I didn’t realise how lucky we were to see it!
      And wow, lucky you going on 4 safaris in South Africa!

  9. Sounds like you had great time there. Loving all the pictures specially small hand made animals.

  10. I’ve always wanted to go to South Africa and these photos make me wanna go even more. It seems like all the best sunsets are in Africa.
