My Trip to South Africa – An Instagram Diary


*Sponsored Post*

While I’m just getting goose bumps, not because it’s so exciting at the moment, but because a cold wind is blowing through the window into my Berlin apartment, I’m sitting here. And still can’t believe my South African adventure is over yet. And because I still need to digest that, especially as I nearly got killed by a cobra, all you get today are some impressions. To daydream, to say oh and sigh.

The rest of the BIG FIVE, the cobra story and what I really do think about game drives: soon!

Disclaimer: I was invited on this trip by Amarula and Nikon gave me a Coolpix S800c to test it. I used it for most of my Instagram pics on this trip, as, and let’s be honest with this, the pics of my iPhone 3GS suck in comparison.

Hi, I'm Yvonne. Travel addict. Guilty as charged. Right now I'm probably falling off a camel somewhere in a desert, getting a new tattoo from a monk in Thailand or am carrying my luggage through a river in the jungle. But just as well I could be sitting on my sofa in Berlin, in my pyjamas. Good girls to to heaven, bad girls go everywhere. Everywhere sounds much more promising. So be travelous and follow me!

  1. Fueling that fire for me to visit South Africa….currently in Nigeria. We should swap Cobra stories if we ever cross paths…instead of almost dying, I just ate mine in Indonesia instead.

      South Africa is really worth a visit 😀 And yes please! Lets swap Cobra stories! 😀 Would feel better eating one that getting nearly killed by one 😀

  2. Your rhino pic is incredible. Getting ready to head to South Africa in less than one month! These pictures have just made me even more impatient! Looking forward to reading about the rest of the trip.
