South Africa is a nation of vast contrasts. From the sweeping plains of Kruger to the vermillion dunes of the Kalahari and the rolling vineyards of Stellenbosch, its topography has as many facets as its cultural identity.
With an astounding array of biodiversity and the most mammals found in any African safari park, Kruger National Park is legendary. It’s also one of the most developed on the continent, with sealed roads, regulated campsites and access for rental cars. Jump into a jeep and get ready to spot the big five on a game drive through the plateau, or head southwest to picturesque Cape Town, to check out its famed peak, Table Mountain. Suitable for all travellers, from the curious, to the thrill-seekers and historians, the country has attractions galore and a world-class food and wine scene to boot.
