Location

South Africa

The unique “Rainbow Nation”; in Southern Africa. A melting pot of culture, wildlife, and wonderful scenery. South Africa’s historic emergence from the Apartheid era has created a country with a wonderful spirit. With eleven national languages and many more cultures.

South Africa’s wildlife destinations rival the best in the world, with the Kruger National Park being a must for all visitors along with the Mkuzi Game Reserve and Addo Elephant National Park. The Zulu and the Xhosa cultures portray an intense history of survival and exploration of the country before the arrival of the Dutch Settlers.

Kruger National Park

The Kruger has more species of wildlife than any other reserve in Africa. Famous for the “big five” experience being elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, and rhino as well as over 460 different species of bird.

Mpumalanga

The province bordering the southern Kruger National Park is known as Mpumalanga. The landscape of the Mpumalanga is made up of panoramic mountain passes, river canyons, waterfalls, and steep mountains. Some of the most spectacular sights include God’s Window, the Blyde River Canyon (3rd largest in the world), and the old gold mining town of Pilgrims Rest.

Kwazulu Natal

Kwazulu Natal is an area rich in diversity. In the Maputaland region, you find the St. Lucia Wetland Park, an area rich in wildlife and beauty. Sodwana Bay boasts spectacular coral reefs superb for diving and snorkeling.
