South Africa is arguably the most well-known safari destination in the world, drawing nearly a million visitors every year to Kruger National Park. The historical and ecological importance of the region makes it a must for those intrigued by history and wildlife alike.
Those that visit will want to return again and again to enjoy an array of different experiences and climates. On one visit, you can stand in the desert, climb Table Mountain and relax on a sandy beach backed by tropical forest. On another you can view the famously vast abundance of wildlife from land, sea or air. Imagine viewing nature in its most raw, beautiful form from your all-terrain safari vehicle or from one the most luxurious trains in Africa, the Rovos Rail or the Blue Train. Make your way towards The Winelands for some of the best tastings in the world and watch a sunrise slink into the Cape Town horizon at the end of the day. Johannesburg and Durban are also stops for many that seek a modern, urban facet to their travels.
No matter where your South African adventure takes you, you’ll find a country that is both varied and exceptional in the cultural heritage waiting to be discovered.
