The Best Trip of My Life: An Overview

Hello again everyone! I am finally back from the most incredible vacation of my life… that is if you don’t consider my life here in South Africa a vacation in itself! I went with Nomad Tours through a 10 day trip in Swaziland, Mozambique, and Kruger National Park in South Africa.

There is no way I can ever describe all of the amazing things that happened during this trip, so I will briefly give y’all an overview in this post and then write more detailed accounts of my favorite parts later on.

Below is a map of all of the places I traveled to! If you click on the blue markers it will tell you information about the location.

My favorite part was by far the amount of wildlife and beautiful scenery I was able to see! I saw dozens of animals and drove through many different eco-systems.

The above collage is a very, very small sampling of the animals I saw! In total I saw 27  different species (that I can remember!). I found them not only in Kruger, but every spot we stopped at.

Here is a full list of my animal sightings in order of when I saw them (without repeats):

  1. monkey
  2. impala
  3. goats
  4. cattle
  5. ostrich
  6. hippo
  7. white rhino
  8. kudu
  9. warthog
  10. nile crocodile
  11. elephant
  12. wildebeest
  13. water buck
  14. vulture
  15. humpback whale
  16. whale shark
  17. fish
  18. baboon
  19. giraffe
  20. cape buffalo
  21. ground hornbill
  22. spotted hyena
  23. daika
  24. zebra
  25. turtle
  26. lion
  27. honey badger
Here is a video of my most exhilarating animal encounter:
I can’t wait to share more about my trip! Next post: Swaziland, the last remaining monarchy in Africa.
