Renowned food and wine, safaris without the worry of Malaria
South Africa is a land of beauty, brimming with life, vibrancy and natural wildernesses. Born of a turbulent past, this newly reinvented nation is a popular tourist destination, offering world famous game reserves, heritage sites, and sophisticated cities. The mix of old-world colonialism, African tribes, and migrant workers has enriched this country with flavor and character. English, Dutch, German and Indian influences are evident in the architecture, language, clothing, and spices. A proud tribal history is reflected in art, music, food, and other cultural traditions.
South Africa has some of the world’s best game parks with diverse animals and ecosystems that lend itself to excellent game viewing. In addition to Big 5 game viewing, you may even see endangered species, like the rhino and cheetah, which you won’t find in many other safari destinations. The private game concessions monitor the number of vehicles allowed on special game sightings, so they won’t be tarnished by a mass of noisy vehicles. Sightings can be less controlled in other game parks throughout Africa, making safaris feel busy and commercialized.
With so much to see and do, South Africa is a destination, which appeals to a range of people. There are properties that cater mostly to adults, intimate and romantic lodges for honeymooners, and other properties that are better suited for families. The well-established infrastructure of the country makes it convenient to travel from a secluded reserve to a bustling metropolis, easily providing guests with a varied South African experience. There truly is something for everyone in South Africa!
