Out of Africa

Last Friday night, Jason and I decided to have a night out of town and headed to the Serengeti resort north of San Antonio.  We stopped for dinner at the Gristmill in Gruene and had a great dinner outdoors.  The whole town was lit up with white Christmas lights.  It was really beautiful and festive.  We arrived to the resort late and got checked in.  We had reserved a tent for the evening and were so so grateful they had a heater set up in it since it turned out to be pretty chilly.  The tent was nice complete with carpet, a lamp and two queen idea of camping.  There was a bath house right next to the tent with clean bathrooms, showers, etc.  We woke up the next morning and had breakfast in the lodge which was so so cute.  The entire grounds were beautiful and relaxing.  After breakfast, we headed out for the "safari" adventure that was one of the reasons I booked the resort.  They have golf carts that you can rent, and they give you a bag full of food and send you on your way to this large pasture that has quite a few African animals roaming.  I wish we had a brochure to know the names of all of them, but we had a great time.  Several of the animals would come right up to the cart and eat from your hand.  We had such a great time, and it was definitely a different experience for a night away.  They have large bungalows to rent that sleep several people so I think it would be so fun so go back with a group of friends when the weather is nice.

 The lodge was rustic and beautiful
 They had floor to ceiling windows so you can see all the animals as you eat.




 Jason made friends with the dog Boomer.
