Sorry about the delayed dispatch. We were literally off grid and out in the African bush.

It’s been one amazing adventure from start to finish and yesterday our last day on safari didn’t disappoint. We spent the day in Tarangire National Park which is home to more elephants per square mile than any other place on earth. The elephants were plentiful as were many animals, but the highlight was seeing not one, but five leopards! We first came upon a male who had just killed an ostrich and then just few minutes later we pulled up on a mother and three cubs. Needless to say everyone has enjoyed the trip and are looking forward to getting home and sharing a few photos.

Happy 25th birthday Jess! Glad we were all able to share this with you.

Thanks so much Casey (and the whole A-team!) for the most incredible quarter century adventure and celebration! We’re back in NYC and missing the trip already. Casey, hope you haven’t shed too many tears yet since the team’s left—I hear if you put mayo on your eyes, it helps to soothe the tear ducts.

Until next time :)!
