The Garden Route runs along the south-eastern coast of South Africa between the mountains and the Indian ocean. Its name comes from the huge variety of vegetation and wildlife that can be found along the route. It is a stunningly beautiful journey that loads (I couldn’t find an official figure but I’m sure it’s a lot) of tourists travel every year, and we were six of them.
For most people, myself very much included, the opportunity to go on safari is not one that presents itself regularly (or, you know, ever). Imagine my excitement then, when I was invited to go on a safari trip to South Africa with my boyfriend and his family. I was as happy as George Michael in the Club Tropicana video.
