Few places compare to South Africa when it comes to spectacular nature and wildlife experiences.
As far as wildlife goes, “The Big 5” (elephant, buffalo, lion, rhino and leopard) is one of the country’s main attractions. Seeing these animals in their natural environment is nothing short of exhilarating – though the “Little 5” are not be scoffed at either! For expansive landscapes and breath-taking views, a visit to the Drakensberg mountains is a must — here you can enjoy endless mountains, abundant bird-life and crystal clear rivers. For those wanting to get off the beaten track, a slow drive through the semi-desert Karoo offers a unique combination of geology, history and lifestyle and is a great escape from city life.
It’s impossible to list all the choices you have, but rest assured that with more than 24 000 plant species, incredible wildlife and epic landscapes, South Africa has something for everyone.
