“Give thanks. In all circumstances, give thanks. Even when the road ahead looks rough, and the walk feels tough. Today, even for just a while, let us put our worries aside And turn our eyes to the good things in our lives. Today, let’s just be grateful for Togetherness, Friendship, And Love.”
There are so many things we are grateful for this year. As a company, we’re experiencing growth. As individuals, we’re encouraged and challenged to keep up, but as a team, we’re stronger. And we know that we wouldn’t be able to reach the important milestones without the support of everyone around us.
On the 29th of November, we hosted an intimate dinner for our dear friends at GIOI in Jakarta. Before we sat to enjoy the delicious food, we spent some time reminiscing the year with gratitude. In the midst of a sweet ambiance, in between the warm-colored floral decorations, we traded stories about how good this year have been to us and how much we’re grateful for everything that’s happened in the past twelve months. Some moments were funny, some were heartwarming… but nothing escaped our feeling of thankfulness.
We want to thank our friends who tried our services and loved us so much they can’t stop talking about us. Thank you for spending the evening with us. We also want to thank our sponsors, without whom this evening won’t be as memorable. Like we said, we’re surrounded by such supportive and loving people. And isn’t that enough to be thankful for this year?

But do you know that there are actually a few savannas in the world that are worthy of your attention? Even more surprising, some of the best ones are located in Indonesia, ready to be explored to your heart’s content. So without further ado, let’s unleash our inner Simba or Nala, it’s time to roam here in our 5 picks of the most beautiful savannas in the world:
Said to be a major inspiration to the movie Lion King, the Serengeti goes as far as the eye can see- and then some more. The seemingly endless grassland is located in Tanzania, Africa and is one of Africa’s most classic safari destinations. It’s the home of the Big Five, over 500 species of birds and Agrica’s most well-known great wildebeest migration.
With countless tour packages available for your choosing, more and more attractions are introduced including hot air balloon, camping, walking safaris and so on. Excitement aside, nothing beats the tranquility of just sitting and waiting for sunset or admiring the landscape up close.
Home to East Sumba’s savanna, the grassland expanse is an iconic jewel that will struck any traveler with an awe-inspiring wonder. Just a 30-minute drive from Waingapu, the open stretches of grassland gets even more dramatic with backdrop of rolling hills at one side and oceanic stretch at the other. Cue in the galloping sandalwood horses and there you have it, the best nature scene one could ever wish for.
In fact, the golden-yellow savanna and blue skies have made the screen plenty of times in the movies. It’s also a highly-requested prewedding location, all thanks to the beach that is adjacent to the meadow with the same name.
The Palouse is the most serene and pastoral of the seven wonders of Washington. Located in the Southeast area of the state, the grassland boasts a unique landscape that is also a designated wheat and barley plantations. As the produce matures from time to time, the Palouse changes in colors too, from lush shades of green in Spring to crispy harvest brown in summer.
The meadow is a gem that captivates the hearts of many photographers, ready to hunt for the next most picturesque memory under the sun. One thing is for sure, with such wonderful sight to see, any shot is going to be as good as it gets.
We’re not kidding when we say some of the best savannas in the world is in Indonesia. Just check out our next contender, Savana Selo that is nicknamed after the pathway to reach it. With the majestic mount Merbabu as the backdrop, you can expect to find a few savanna spots, all with the same exotic yet carefree panorama. The beauty often stops hikers in their tracks, inviting them to take a long rest while absorbing the fresh view it has to offer.
Plenty of other mountains in Indonesia also share the same geographical feature of mountainous savannas. To name a few, there are Mount Sindoro, Mount Lawu, Mount Bromo, Mount Argopura and the list continues! So if you are yet to step foot in Africa or other foreign countries, Nusantara beckons your savanna visit anytime of the day.
Nothing gets more instagrammable than the stretch of lovely pink savanna in the form of one endless park. It’s one of the most visited places in Korea during autumn, the pinkish and violet grass sway dreamily like one huge fluffy carpet.
The pink sea of flowers is not the only thing that you get to enjoy, because Nari Park also houses many different other floral species that share one thing in common : extra prettiness! Just get your camera ready and prepare to experience a day of natural beauty at its finest height.
