Describe one of your days, from when you first woke up to when you went to bed

Where does one even begin? From start to finish, every single day was amazing! One day I can elaborate on is the day we had multiple activities planned for us. We woke up on a beautiful day, slightly windy and chilly but the house and the setting just made everything incredible no matter the weather. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast on the verandah, overlooking nature and were even lucky enough to have some wild animals casually walking by. We were then greeted by the friendly faces of the hair and makeup team and the photographers and videographer! Needless to say we were pampered and we all enjoyed having our hair and makeup professionally done before choosing the most incredible outfits. Our tribe was then treated to our own personal photoshoot, looking fabulous and sipping on champagne! What more could a girl want?!

After the photoshoot fun, we made our way back to the house, changed into slightly warmer clothes and were told we had a surprise bush dinner planned for us. We were so excited! The Fort Governor's team fetched us from the house, ready to escort us to our dreamy dinner destination. The girls and I jumped on the back of the game viewer and were spoilt by a glorious sunset - the perfect introduction for another delightful feast. We were greeted with the most magical bush dinner setup. Fairly lights, a cozy fire, delicious wine and yummy food. They even catered for the vegans!
