Dream Vacation: South Africa







In honor of the season finale of The Bachelor tonight (I'm rooting for Emily but I think he'll pick Chantal), I had to discuss my ultimate dream vacation-a South African safari.  I can't imagine a more exhilarating adventure than being able to roam through the jungle among hippos, lions, zebras, etc, ride elephants, and sleep in luxurious tree houses.  I hope to one day make it here, but until then I have a mindless/awesome reality show finale to tide me over.  Will you be watching The Bachelor tonight?

I've never watched, but it's exactly my kind of show... I may have to start. I'd also LOVE to go on a safari someday; there's something so exotic about it!

Going on safari is on the top of my list as well. How amazing. I worked with a guy once who went on safari and they slept in tents in the wilderness. He said they could hear lions prowling around outside while they were inside with their sleeping bags pulled right up to their chins :) Sounds deliciously terrifying.

YES! SO fun! That last picture has me laughing, and I am definitely watching tonight. I LOVE Emily, but agree that he probably picks Chantal.

I've heard it's a "must-do" vacation... someday, right??

I never got into the bachelor, but I do watch another mindless reality show- Survivor. Oooh, and this season's a good one =).

Have fun dreaming/watching tonight!

no Bachelor for me, but that would be an awesome trip

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Oh me too! I actually haven't tuned into the Bachelor much this season but caught the one a few weeks ago when he was with the three girls in SA. Such a dreamy place! And the cool thing is that I'm doing buisness with SA right now and I might have to make a trip down there soon! Finger's crossed :)

Marie said...

I would love to go on a safari and see a lion up close just like in the 2nd picture.:D

Happy Monday, Valerie!:D

My dad has actually promised me a trip to South Africa the summer of 2012 - can't wait!

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

I just started watching bachelor with 6 girls left and now I can't seem to get enough. After seeing the tree house that Chantel stayed in with him I can't get Africa out of my mind. Definitely a dream.

Urgh if only I wasn't happily married and Brad Womack wasn't so much a tool than I could be there with him. Ha!

Nicole Marie said...

we're watching it right now. i want to go there too!!

Ashley said...

If you go, take me with you! That is seriously my dream vacation too!

Annie said...

Ditto on dreaming about this incredible vacation on a regular basis! I love all of these images. I have not kept up with the bachelor this season, but now I'm curious about Emily and Chantal.. :) xo

I actually watched the last episode (although didn't watch the entire season). And yes South Africa would be amazing. It's on my list...I have been to East Africa on safari's but the wineries, town, beaches, and safari's all make South Africa so desirable! One day....

I'm a devoted Bachelor watcher and was rooting for Chantal, but then heard he picked Emily. Did you watched ATFR? The relationship looks like it's not going to last. Already fighting and breaking up is not a good sign. Oh well, add it to the statistics. :-(
