Thank you so much to everyone who sent us well wishes on our marriage and to all who made the trip out to Healdsburg to celebrate our big day with us! We had the best night and made so many memories. We truly appreciate each person in our lives and we are so excited to grow as husband and wife with you all.

We had an amazing honeymoon after the wedding!
Our first stop was Victoria Falls, where we really loved seeing the animals right outside our room, including warthogs and springbok. The actual falls were magnificent and we really enjoyed walking along the entire span of the falls.
We enjoyed quite a few activities including a beautiful sunset dinner cruise and a canoe safari on the Zambezi River. We saw lots of wildlife on the river including elephants, birds, and a few hippos. We also had a lot of fun at a traditional (and a bit touristy) African style BBQ dinner and traditional dancing show. We joined in a traditional drum circle and did some sweet African dancing.
Our next stop was Kapama Game Reserve for safari! We really enjoyed cruising around on the morning and evening safaris and seeing all of the animals in their natural environment. We also saw all sorts of action as well, including a lion stalking a zebra and a pride of lions feasting on a downed buffalo. We both enjoyed taking photos throughout the park and really got to know our guide and tracker well. The food at the camp was also quite fresh and delicious and was probably our second favorite thing after the safari.
The final segment of our trip in Cape Town was absolutely excellent. There was so much delicious food and wine there. We had one of the best meals we have ever had at The Test Kitchen, which is one of the top 50 restaurants in the world. We also really enjoyed checking out the local art and boutiques.
Our tour of the coastline was extremely scenic views with great views of the coastline. Seeing penguins at Boulders Beach was quite fun given that we were still in South Africa and it was quite warm. While we were in Cape Town we also went up to the top of Table Mountain and the views were absolutely stunning. We hiked around the top of the mountain and seeing such a marshy foggy area contrasting with expansive dry lowlands was quite special.
We loved every single aspect of our honeymoon and we will definitely go back to Africa!
