Where to start.  This has been the best experience of my life.  I love South Africa – it’s full of life, energy and peace.  It’s the most beautiful place I’ve ever been to, with breathtaking views and amazing animals.  I go back home with memories and moments that I’ll never forget.

The people I’ve met, the memories that were created will no doubt stay with me for a life time.  You end up running out of adjectives describing this place … incredible, surreal, unbelievable are just a few of the many words that spring to mind
