There are few countries in the world where you can joyride alongside elephants and rhinos, or even walk through the bush to spot leopards and lions in their natural habitats, like you can at Kruger National Park in South Africa. The rare opportunity to spot the “Big Five” is dwindling and like many travel opportunities, may one day be obsolete－ compelling adventurers even moreso!
The rich animal kingdom may be what attracts you to South Africa but the miles of gorgeous beaches and warm temperature, the award-winning wines of Cape Wine Islands, and the champagne cruise sunsets of Table Bay will soothe your soul and delight your senses. Take a cable car up Table Mountain with panoramic views of the spectacular landscapes and wildlife, or further your animal-inspired trip with a visit to Boulders Beach and checkout the Cape penguins.
Named the “rainbow nation” for its rich multiculturalism, a visit to Soweto will justify South Africa’s name as you mingle with the array of local customs and traditions. With some of the most dramatic landscapes, colorful people and extraordinary wildlife, South Africa is a haven for photographers. It’s no wonder visitors lose their heart in the “rainbow nation” of South Africa.
