South Africa The Essential World-renowned wildlife parks, beautiful natural landscapes and constantly changing cities make South Africa, the “rainbow” nation, an exciting destination. The country is justifiably proud of its wildlife and natural scenery. Elephants, rhinoceros, lions, leopards and buffalos are the stars of the show in a country where private nature reserves and national parks offer a whole host of exciting activities, such as white-water rafting in the Kalahari, hot-air balloon rides in the Pilanesberg, spending the night in the open air in Hluhluwe park, and mountain biking in Kruger park. But it’s also worth allowing time to explore Cape Town, a city which lies between sandy beaches and Table Mountain and which becomes more and more beautiful as it grows. Visit Johannesburg and Durban, both of which boast incredible cultural diversity, and explore villages lost in the immense expanses of the Karoo desert. Don’t forget to go hiking in the Drakensberg mountain range, following in the footsteps of the Bushmen.And before heading home with all these remarkable memories, don’t forget to slip a bottle of delicious Stellenbosch wine in your suitcase.
