Living my Rich Life: Honeymoon travels in Africa
February 28, 2019
I’ve been sharing my honeymoon stories and other aspects of my life on my Instagram stories.
In the last installment of my Honeymoon Series, we explored Italy with our parents, and now we’ve moved on to …
AFRICA! Come join us and our safari adventures in Kenya.
Our first night, we stayed in Nairobi.
I was feeling it:
That was my attempt at posing. Damn.
We took a bush plane to our first safari stop in Laikipia.
But all was well afterward.
And now the real adventure begins!
We went to three different safari camps to see different animals and environments, based on our budget, what kinds of animals we wanted to see, if we wanted to hike (no), if we were into luxury (YES!), if we’re adventurous (yes), etc.
I want to show you some of the animals I saw and what I learned about them.
We stayed at Borana, Saruni Samburu, and Angama Mara.
At Angama, I rented a camera for the day. After looking at my photos, they weren’t great, so I stopped by the photo shop and asked if I could hire Adam Bannister, the photography instructor, to go on safari and coach me on my photo-taking skills.
Here’s a picture I took before Adam coached me:
And here are some much-improved photos after Adam’s coaching:
What a stark difference! Here’s one more and possibly my favorite:
What do you think?
Many of you know that I LOVE spending extravagantly on things like convenience and luxury.
I loved going through and finding all of the things that hospitality businesses thought about providing Cass and me for a truly memorable, luxurious experience. It’s the little details that matter.
Let me show you a couple of examples:
I was able to use my cell phone to arrange everything I ever needed and reach different people in the camp for essentially everything I could ever dream of.
For example, I could request a special dinner where we could eat under the stars or a picnic — and they help make it happen.
Worth every penny. A few other little details I noticed and appreciated:
We loved visiting a Maasai village and seeing how they live.
This was such a rich experience for us.
