I’m not really big on souvenirs. Don’t get me wrong, I have collected several items from my travels — pieces of artwork, jewelry, etc that hold sentimental value and remind me of the experiences I’ve had and the people I’ve met. But more times than not, it’s the memories and photos or Skype calls with new friends and plans for a return trip that I value the most. So when friends ask me to bring them back something from a upcoming trip, I try my best to oblige, but what I’d really prefer is for them to come along too…
This May, I wrapped another amazing trip to South Africa, one of the highlights being a visit to the Lion Park just outside of Johannesburg. I spent time petting (mostly sleeping) lion cubs and even had some one on one time (well 2 on 1 time counting the trainer) with Sebu one of their cheetahs in the Cheetah experience. Before heading out I joined an hour long tour of the park to get a closer look at the rest of the park’s residents: ostriches, springbok and of course more lions.

While the photos are cool and I can talk about the trip for days, nothing can replace the actual experience of being there first hand, up close and personal. With the IHG Share Forever Promotion, your friends no longer have to miss out!
Final day in #SouthAfrica. And like the last two visits, it’s been another great experience. Saying goodbyes and beginning this long journey back to the states. I have a feeling I’ll be back again a lot than sooner than originally planned…. #instatravel #MeetSouthAfrica #TravelAfrica #traveladdict #travel #Cheetah #cheetahprint A photo posted by April D.
