Travel South Africa with us
Browsing through South Africa tour packages and yet undecided about the places you need to visit? This guide should be of help.
It is not just South Africa’s turbulent history that has been a turning point in world politics, or its pluralistic society home to a multi-ethnic community, the southern-most country in Africa is besides everything a breathtaking landscape silhouetted against the Kalahari dunes, white sandy beaches, meteor-crashing desert skies, flat mountain tops, sprawling vineyards, scraggy bushlands and a dense wilderness where some truly exotic flora and fauna thrive.
A veritable safari capital of the world that houses the famous African Big Five, South Africa’s wealth of national parks and luxurious game reserves make it relevant to the contemporary traveller who sees himself setting out into its jungles in an open 4X4 to spot big game in their habitat.
South Africa’s astounding wildlife
Easily the continent’s best safari getaway that is home to the famed African Big Five (buffalo, lion, leopard, elephant and rhino), South Africa is a patchwork of parks and reserves that warrant a plush stay in the heart of the wilderness. Make sure you include a stay at one such gaming lodge when looking for South Africa packages.
Here’s a list of the country’s most iconic safari destinations.
Kruger National Park: Spread out over 2 million hectares, Kruger is larger than Israel and hands-down the most visited national park in the country. Self-drive is a popular way of exploring the park bringing in hordes of wildlife enthusiasts for game safaris. Aside from the Big Five, the Kruger wilderness is also home to the Little Five (leopard tortoise, buffalo weaver, rhino beetle, elephant shrew and ant lion).
Some popular ways of exploring the national park other than game drives are elephant-back safari, foot safaris and bush walks. Kruger is known for its luxurious game reserves such as Sabi Sands, Buhala and Timbavati.
