Iconic Africa Traveller, Becky Rasor recently returned from her first time visiting Africa!
Her mum Danae Prousis took Becky, her sister Katherine and brother Greg on their first safari. This wonderful family quickly created lasting memories in the bush, met new people, and built relationships in such a short time at each location. They had an adventurous trip, visiting Arusha National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater, Southern Serengeti, the Masai Mara, Nairobi and Aberdare. Becky has been kind enough to chat to us about her time in Africa – here’s what she had to say:
Q: Was this your first time to Africa?
Q: What was your first impression?
A: The most stunning landscapes and kindest people.
Q: What surprised you the most about it?
A: I didn’t expect to develop close relationships in such a short time with the different people I met along our journey. They are so proud of their country and make you feel like family. It’s a level of service and care that is difficult to replicate elsewhere.
Q: What is your favourite memory/experience at Giraffe Manor?
A: Feeding the giraffes! One of the most special experiences. I also loved that the dinners were group dinners with other guests at the manor.
Q: Where in Africa do you want to safari next and why?
A: Rwanda to see the gorillas.
Q: What did you spend most of your time doing while on safari? On game drives, cultural experiences or relaxation and self-care?
A: Most of our time was spent on game drives admiring the beautiful landscapes and animals.
Q: Describe your trip to Africa in just 5 words?
A: The trip of a lifetime.
Q: When do you think you will next visit Africa?
A: Hopefully in the next five years
Q: If there’s anything you could tell people who have never visited Africa what would it be?
A: Visiting Africa helped to bring me back to reality and put things into perspective. You have a moment where it’s just you and nature and nothing else matters. I think everyone deserves that opportunity to reconnect with themselves and the world.
