Diverse South Africa Safari Opportunities
South Africans love to travel to all the corners of their country, and any South Africa safari will offer its own unique encounters! While outdoor enthusiasts may have their favourite destinations, brand new experiences will usually be easily embraced. When it comes to planning your itinerary it is imperative to work with a professional tour operator who has extensive experience in the SA tour and safari context - from wildlife, to accommodation, climate and so on. Africa is primarily about wildlife and local and overseas visitors place a high premium on the Big Five, and four and five star lodges.
A South Africa safari and tour often means places like the Kruger National Park or Cape Town, so why not both? Cape Town has Table Mountain and the wine lands, which are already a mouthful! On a visit to Kruger, the traveller is bound to come across the Big Five if the trip has a good guide up front; someone who knows the best times and places for sightings. Early mornings are good for sightings of predators and so are night game drives. Rhinos are scarce, so if you happen to stumble upon a white rhino mother and child count yourself lucky. Also look out for the black rhino, for a complete encounter of these magnificent beasts.
But that’s not all SA has on offer! The province of KwaZulu-Natal is located on the Eastern side of the country, and has its own unforgettable offerings too. Durban has major airports for transfers, and both the south and north coasts have beautiful stretches of beaches and opportunities for water sport. There are also wetlands, interesting rural areas, many game parks and nature reserves, as well as places such as Sodwana, perfect for diving, fishing and surfing!
The Golden Gate National Park nestles on the Free State side of the Drakensberg Mountains. Apart from the sheer beauty of the mountain range and the adjacent terrain, the mountain is renowned for its hiking routes and amazing camping facilities. A South Africa safari to these parts means packing hiking boots for daily or longer hikes; cameras, iPods or iPhones to capture the beauty of it all and binoculars for bird watching.
