South Africa Nature
You want nature? South Africa’s got it. Mountains, coastline, grassy plains, epic wildlife…if you come to this part of the world, you definitely won’t walk away disappointed. From Cape Town to Pretoria to everywhere in between, South Africa nature is worth the entire trip!
If you’ve come to see wildlife, the area known as Durban is fortunate enough to have a world-class game reserve that’s home to the Big 5: lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino. The Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve is the oldest reserve in Africa with many African animals and limitless bird life to view. You’ll even have the opportunity to meet the Zulu people along the way. Having an experienced guide to introduce you to South Africa nature is the key for doing it safely and comfortably.
For something truly spectacular, elephant lovers MUST go to Addo Elephant National Park, which has a population of over 600 African elephants. You’ll drive through the historic Zuurberg mountain pass to get there, which affords some spectacular views over the lowlands below. You can ride on the backs of the gentle giant African bull elephants while on safari, and then feed him and touch him after your ride is over. You’ll even get to see the elephants at play, frolicking in a mud bath or taking a swim with friends.
If you’re the kind of person who loves a good road trip, driving the Garden Route is well worth it. Travel via Jeffreys Bay and Cape St Francis with a stop at the Storms River Bridge. Then move on to Tsitskamma National Park for some stunning scenic landscapes. Visit Monkeyland, which as you might have guessed, is filled with monkeys that have been rescued from captivity and then are rehabilitated in this free-roaming park. See the Birds of Eden, a huge free flight aviary with a stream and temperate rainforest, with birds from all around the world. Make your way back via Natures Valley for a swim at the beach or a walk in the valley.Read More ...
