All in favor of adding an African safari to your birthday celebration bucket list, raise a hand! We couldn’t agree with you more, especially upon seeing this stunning resort in South Africa and learning about the amazing things they do to save the animals and preserve the beautiful land they so respect. Singita Castleton is a Mecca for animal and nature lovers as much as it is for those who love a luxurious getaway. An impeccably designed resort, this is one of those spots that’ll have you wondering why you don’t celebrate your birthday with a major adventure every year.

REPORTER: The Venue Report

 

If you haven't already followed the Hello America IG account, you're seriously missing out. We've been admirers of this dynamic duo for quite some time now. Their travels captured on film instantly teleport you to their location in your mind, having you daydream about how you can copy and paste their adventures and make them your own. 

We recently chatted with photographer, explorer, freelance writer, and the co-creater of Hello America, Kristen Blanton while chowing down on some tacos and churros overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We know, dreamy. What was even dreamier was hearing the heart of Kristen while discussing her passions, upcoming projects, and recent explorations near and far. This kind soul and free-spirited wanderer shares some of the most intimate and authentic moments of life on the road including cooking in the back of her car and taking bathroom breaks in the desert (insert laughing emoji here) via IG. You can only imagine how excited we were to sit down with her in person - as you know, we are attracted to all the realness. And for all you fellow camp enthusiasts out there, keep scrolling for Kristen's tips so you too can be a pro adventurer.
