If you’re thinking about booking the adventure of a lifetime, a South African tour should be on top of your list. A majestic land, South Africa is known as “a world in one country.” Situated at the southern edge of the African continent, this country is bounded by oceans on three sides, with an interior that has a wonderful assortment of habitats, from lush tropical forests to arid deserts, from mountains to the open savannah of the bushveld. Since the demise of infamous Apartheid regime, the country has become one of the top travel destinations on the planet, blending elements of both “Africa of old” with modernity.
On a South African tour, one can escape to wild, remote areas and experience exceptional game viewing and true wilderness. Then just an hour’s flight away, there are modern cities and hotels that compete with the best in the world. With 11 official languages and a diverse range of cultures and ways of life, it is no wonder that Mandela has named South Africa the “rainbow nation.”

When it comes to wildlife and scenery, a South African safari offers the visitor a plethora of places to see, including a number of World Heritage Sites and incredible game reserves. One of the most beautiful cities in the world, Cape Town is built amongst an entire, unique Cape Floral Kingdom, one of the six plant kingdoms of the world. There are more naturally occurring different species of flowers in this region than in North America and Europe combined. On the other side of the spectrum are the deserts and arid areas.

The coastline of South Africa is enormous, offering superb scenery, such as sandy beaches and sheer fynbos covered cliffs of the Garden Route, as well as amazing wildlife opportunities, from humpback whales breaching off the shores of Cape Town to the unspoiled coral reefs along the KwaZulu – Natal coastline.

The pride of South Africa’s heritage is the Kruger National Park. At 4.4 million acres and over 185 miles long, this enormous area encompasses a savannah landscape with some 147 mammal species, over 400 bird species and numerous reptile, amphibians and insects. Given all that this magnificent land has to offer, a South African safari is a must.
