I really can’t believe it, but I just got off the phone with Delta and I booked flights to my #1 dream destination. I have literally dreamed of visiting this place my whole life and it feels surreal that it will finally be happening this October. So, where am I going?
I’M GOING TO SOUTH AFRICA!!!
Wow, that feels good to say. I’m Africa bound this October and will be going on an 8 day safari through Kruger National Park with Epic Enabled. Epic Enabled is a tour company that specializes in wheelchair accessible safaris. They have adapted safari trucks and I’ll be staying in accessible bungalows for a truly authentic safari experience. According to the itinerary, I will “hear the animal calls, taste traditional food, see the famous deep-red sunsets, feel the African heartbeat, meet other travellers, have fun & lots more”.
As an animal lover, being able to see so many animals in their natural environment will be unbelievable. I’m hoping that we’ll be able to spot the Big 5 while on safari. The “Big 5” refers to the animals that are the most difficult to spot and most dangerous. The Big 5 are the lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros. All of these animals can be seen in South Africa so I’ll just have to keep my fingers crossed.
I will have more updates between now and when I leave in October, and I’ll be blogging all about my trip of course, but I just had to tell you guys about my exciting plans. I am pretty certain that this will be my greatest trip yet and I am already counting down the days… I CAN’T WAIT!!
