30 Day Blog Challenge – Day 3


Day 3 – Your idea of the perfect first date.

When I lived in Africa, my ideal first date would of been a trip to Paris to see the Eiffel Tower, with dinner in a quiet romantic French restaurant!  However as I now live in Mud Island (England to those who don’t know!)  my ideal first date would be………………………………

Shishangeni Private Lodge

Going on safari in a game park, just you the animals, your mode of transport and the Tour Guide!  Don’t forget the tour guide!

The day would start with an early rise game drive for a couple of hours, then we would stop at a large Baobab tree, where we would have a cooked breakfast, made on a braai (BBQ for those from Mud Island!) followed by a lovely drive back to the lodge, where we would rest and have some alone time.  But it doesn’t end there!

At around 4pm we would board a boat and take a sundowner cruise down the lake, sipping cocktails and watching the amazing African wildlife!  The cruise would last about 2 hrs, where we would then return to the lodge and experience dinner round a boma out in the open!

Ah bliss, my heartaches for Africa just typing this!  But as at today, this would be my perfect first date!
