South Africa

The beauty of Cape Town and the wild animals of Kruger National Park and the surrounding Sabi Sands area, combine to make South Africa a unique destination that should be near the top of every list of places to visit. Few countries offer such a wide array of accommodation, activities, and people.

Johannesburg is a large hub that connects much of the World with Southern Africa.
South Africa has fairly mild winters and hot summers which make it a nice destination year-round. Many people feel the best time to visit is October through April. Other people prefer May through November. It depends on where you are in South Africa. Game Viewing around Kruger National Park is nice year-round and August is a particularly busy month. Cape Town can be cool in the winter months, though is quite popular in the summer months.
Excursions include game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, walking safaris, night drives, cultural excursions, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, elephant riding, horseback riding, wine region tours, and even more adventurous excursions such as great white shark diving.
Safari lodges in South Africa are often easier to access and more luxurious than in other destinations. This makes it nice for first-time safari travelers, honeymooners, and those looking for the animal viewing to be a portion of the trip, not necessarily the entire focus. It’s easy to combine a stay in Cape Town and out in the Winelands with a few days on safari. It’s also easy to add on a beach stay to the end in Mauritius or Seychelles.
