Kariega and Shamwari were such a neat experience. They call the area "the bush." We drove around in these huge jeeps with our guides showing us all the wild animals. Early in the morning I went on a riverboat tour. We saw animals on the banks of the river and sat and listened to all the exotic sounds of an Africa morning. I soaked it all in. By the time we got back all of us felt energized and excited. It was something else.
