What We Love
- South Africa is the most developed and cosmopolitan country in Africa. For those hesitant to leave too many Western comforts behind, this might be the best area to visit.
- Direct flights from the United States allow an efficient journey.
- Many of the best camps are on private ranches that were previously fenced in as hunting reserves. Many of these fences have been removed, or they are in the process of being taken down, to allow the animals to once again roam freely among neighboring reserves and national parks, which is great news for the animals.
Things To See & Do
- Spend a morning hiking up the spectacular Table Mountain in Cape Town before heading out to one of the surrounding vineyards for prodigious tasting.
- Visit the Kalahari Desert and the famous Kruger Park.
- Take the well-known–and totally renovated–Blue Train or Rovos Train and experience Africa as travelers did in the past.
- Take a day trip to Cape Point, the southern-most tip of the African continent, and visit a jackass penguin colony.
- Wander through the kaleidoscope of flowers at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.
- Spend a day driving the garden route.
