The following branded content post is brought to you by KLM Airlines. You know I love promoting contests! The prize here is fabulous and I really hope that one of my readers wins.
Three years ago today, I was on safari in Kruger National Park, enjoying my first trip to Africa. My first trip to South Africa was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken (actually, so was my second trip to South Africa), and I consider visiting Africa to be one of the most significant milestones in my life of travel.
I can’t recommend Africa enough — and in particular, going on safari. Africa is an enormously diverse continent, but all over the continent are opportunities for once-in-a-lifetime safaris, whether you choose to go to Tanzania, Kenya, South Africa, or beyond.
I yelped in excitement when I saw my first impala in Kruger. (Four days later, I was calling them NADIs, or Not Another Damn Impala, along with my guides.) The first giraffe. The first hippo. The first lion. The first endangered black rhino. All of those moments were magical, bringing me back to childhood.
Which is why I’m thrilled to introduce a contest from KLM for U.S. residents — you could win flights and a safari to Tanzania! For Americans, getting to Africa can seem daunting. Making it easier is KLM, who offers flights to Africa via Amsterdam from its many gateway U.S. cities, including New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Detroit, Houston, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Memphis, Minneapolis, and more.
Where could you go in Africa on KLM" Cape Town. Johannesburg. Nairobi. Dar es Salaam. Kilimanjaro.
With those getaways, there’s quite a lot that you could do.

Africa is Full of Bucket List Items
Seriously, safari should be number one, front and center. But here are a few other activities that you could enjoy in KLM’s easy-to-reach African destinations.

In Cape Town, you can’t miss a trip to the Cape Peninsula, including the penguin-filled Boulders Beach! Don’t miss Hout Bay, Cape Point, or the Cape Winelands, either.

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is a life goal for many — and it’s far simpler and more achievable than, say, climbing Mount Everest. Though I’d definitely train for this climb in advance!

Johannesburg was one of the most underrated cities I’ve ever visited. Everything I read told me that it would be boring and dangerous — but it was anything but. Vibrant, colorful, fascinating, and home to some amazing people.
