Our last day in Africa was spent in Johannesburg. We only had one day to see as much as we could, before catching a flight back to Australia late at night.

It's surprising how much other countries can sometimes feel like home. Durban felt more like Melbourne than any other place we have travelled to so far.
Marc's Treehouse CampTuesday, 24 February 2015
If you have the opportunity, everyone should spend a night sleeping in a treehouse amongst the South African wildlife.
The Lion KingMonday, 23 February 2015
The most magical moment of safari was spotting a pride of lions, including 6 baby lion cubs hiding amongst the reeds of the river.

Kruger National ParkFriday, 20 February 2015
Day two of our South African Safari included a whole day game drive roaming around Kruger National Park. It was probably the day I was most excited about out of our safari itinerary. A whole day game drive around Kruger National Park - driving around the natural home of the wildlife that roams around Africa. To say I was excited was an understatement. The day started bright and early at 6am. Since the entrance to Kruger was about an hour and a half drive from where we were started, we wanted to get on the road early!

An African Safari has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember, and my first experience in South Africa was nothing short of amazing.

Zimbabwe or Zambia?Tuesday, 17 February 2015
The big question when visiting the Falls is whether to visit Zimbabwe or Zambia. There's always a lot of discussion about whether to stay on the Zimbabwean or Zambian side of Victoria Falls. As the Falls lies on the boarder of the two countries, you can definitely view the Falls from both sides. Zimbabwe has historically been considered the best country to view the Falls, due to 75% of the Falls lying on the Zimbabwean side, however over the last decade or so political turmoil in Zimbabwe has allowed Zambia to establish itself as the more favourable destination. However here are some things to keep in mind when deciding between Zimbabwe and Zambia:

The Devils PoolMonday, 16 February 2015
I can honestly say, without a doubt, the most exhilarating moment of my life has been visiting the Devil's Pool - sitting on the edge of a waterfall with one of the biggest drops in the world.

The FallsSaturday, 14 February 2015
Victoria Falls has definitely secured it's place as one of the largest and most amazing waterfalls in the world, and when you're standing face to face with the Falls it's not hard to understand why.

Victoria Falls Rainbow HotelFriday, 13 February 2015
Victoria Falls was the perfect town to remind you that you were in Africa. The whole town consisted of two tiny streets full of cafes, souvenir shops and tourist information, with a supermarket around the back. Everything was in walking distance, surrounded by trees and bushland, and there were monkeys running around everywhere. There were all types of monkeys, including baboons just running freely around the hotel grounds, the streets and the boarder crossings. We were definitely in Africa.
