Appropriately promoted as ‘a world in one country’, South Africa is incredibly diverse and has something to cater for every taste. From the vibrant culture of the ‘rainbow nation’ and its remarkable history, to the plentiful wildlife of its national parks, spectacular coastline, majestic Cape of Good Hope, dramatic mountains, ancient deserts, bustling cities, and award winning wine regions; South Africa has it all.
A must-do on a trip to South Africa is to spend a few days or a week on safari to one of the many wildlife reserves like the world famous Kruger National Park. The best way to experience the wildlife of this renowned reserve is to visit one of the exclusive lodges on the private concessions in the greater Kruger area. Some of the best leopard viewing on the continent is to be found in the exclusive private lodge domain of the Sabi Sands Game Reserve. Being on private land game viewing vehicles are permitted to drive off-road providing more intimate encounters with wildlife.
South Africa is the gateway to the rest of Southern Africa providing easy connections to all the surrounding countries. For those wanting to broaden their experience from the beautiful wilderness, South Africa provides numerous alternatives including picturesque Cape Town with the imposing Table Mountain and the Cape of Good Hope. Further afield are world renowned wine regions and the stunning Garden Route, making South Africa a destination on its own, or a superb combination with safaris to other countries and regions.
