Glen Afric Country Lodge

Hello Journeyers,
As all of you know by now Cedric and I love exploring and going away over weekends. We have been doing this less and less lately as our busy lives have taken over our social lives. It sucks to be honest and I miss our weekends away and I miss my blogging. I miss sharing the places we visit with all of you. A few weeks back we were on our way to family for the weekend and decided to turn it into a little adventure so we had a short pit stop.

We came across Glen Afric CL on SafariNow. I was super excited as they do elephant walks and interactions. I love elephants and I was sold. Glen Afric is only 40min from Johannesburg, so perfect for a nice weekend getaway. I was rather impressed with what they have to offer, from a variety of accommodation options to picnics and lion interactions. We were welcomed by friendly staff with warm welcome smiles and taken to our room.

It was like walking into a different century and I loved it. The paintings on the walls really intrigued me. Unfortunately I'm not a art guru and all I can say is I liked it. We headed to the deck to relax and de-stress from the traffic with a good glass of wine followed by a very tasty dinner.

I slept like a baby and loved waking up to the calls of the zebra's and birds. We packed our bags with heavy hearts and headed to breakfast which is included in the rate. The views are something else and we spotted the ellies, zebras and a few other antelope.

We really did enjoy our stay and I just want to thank the wonderful staff of Glen Afric for making our stay extra special. You will see us soon but this time in your tents, then stable blocks oh yes and then your cottages.
