Magical Moments

The Honeymoon


We both are nature lovers!!So we went on a African safari between Hoedspruit and Phalaborwa on different game farms.We went on game drives and hikes and enjoyed the boma fires everynight with the sound of roaring lions,laughing hyenas and different night owls in the background...We slept in luxurios safari tents between hippos and a leopard.Real Africa fun!!
