After a very exciting 20 days touring through South Africa, Namibia and Botswana - where we got to know each other very well, made good friends, saw spectacular places and had so much fun - our tour ended in Victoria falls, situated at the top of Zimbabwe, only divided from Zambia by the 4th longest river in Africa, the mighty Zambezi!
Kruger National Park, one of South Africa’s most popular holiday destinations, offers some of the most exciting big five game viewing opportunities in Africa. This is a strong statement given that there are other extremely popular safari destinations such as the Serengeti and the Masai Mara in East Africa, however, there are a lot of reasons why you should take the time to visit all three of these spectacular national parks.
The Drakensberg mountain stretches over 200 kilometers with the biggest portion situated in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. This spectacular mountain range was first referred to as 'uKhahlamba' by the native Zulu people, meaning 'Barrier of Spears'. Much later with the arrival of the Dutch Voortrekkers, it became known as 'The Dragon Mountain'.
Cape Town is renowned for its incredible beauty and activities; however this is also a city that has an exciting lifestyle and culture. By staying in lodges in Cape Town you’ll stick close to the atmosphere and absorb the exciting vibe.
The best time for observing the animals is the dry winter season. Then the grass is low and bushes and trees don't have leaves, so that one can have an unobstructed view. Because it virtually doesn't rain in winter, the animals come to the waterholes to drink in the mornings and evenings and can easily be watched from the car.
The park was proclaimed in 1931, as a safeguard for the last 11 wild elephants roaming the area. It is now home to over 350 elephants and numerous other species. Addo Elephant Park was so successful that it started to become overcrowded, so surrounding land needed to be acquired.
The bushveld is blessed with a unique type of tranquility that soothes even the most stressed of city dwellers. For a respite from the madness, seek out perfect Kruger Park accommodation and set up camp in the beautiful bushveld.
