South Africa is, geologically, a land of stunning contrast and diversity. It has more than 2,500 kilometres of lush and tropical coastline, stretching along two oceans, and a vast, flat interior, which is home to the mighty Karoo desert.
As a destination, South Africa offers good weather, natural beauty, adventure, and, of course, awe-inspiring wildlife, which can be found in almost every province.
The Limpopo province’s bushveld regions offer an abundance of wildlife, including lion, leopard, white rhino, blue wildebeest, kudu, hippopotamus and giraffe. The province also contains the Waterberg Biosphere, an area rich in wildlife as well as Stone Age archaeological finds.
The Mpumalanga province is home to the vast Kruger National Park as well as stunning private reserves such as Sabi Sand, Timbavati and Klaserie. Experiences range from a simple camp beneath the stars, to five-star splendour where soothing spa experiences follow unforgettable wildlife encounters.
The Elephant Coast in KwaZulu-Natal is a stunning ecotourism destination, active in wetland and wildlife conservation efforts, offering diverse experiences from a big five (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros) game safari to sea turtle tracking.
These and many other destinations offer the opportunity to see and photograph a multitude of species in their natural habitats, to explore protected areas, and contribute to conservation efforts.
South Africa is also all about adventure, from the gentle to the extreme – hiking, birdwatching, star gazing, fishing, golfing, mountain biking, microlighting, rock climbing, gorge swinging, abseiling, and much, much more.
