Travel to South Africa
Wrapped around the southern tip of Africa, South Africa is among the world's most popular and exciting destinations for wildlife lovers. Safari goers from the world-over flock every year to Kruger National Park to see some of the largest and most beautiful animals in the world - lions, rhinos, elephants, water buffalo, and leopards all living naturally in the preserve. Kruger along with Kgalagadi and several other preserves allow visitors to drive right in and get up close and personal with these majestic creatures, but that doesn't mean there aren't opportunities to go by foot on guided tours in other corners of the vast country.
South Africa is known for more than its safari opportunities, though. With hundreds of miles of coastline, visitors can go surfing off the eastern coast, parasailing at Table Mountain near Cape Town, or just relaxing along any of the country's beautiful beaches. From hikes into the Drakensberg to trips to the Graskop Gorge, this is one of the most adventurous spots on Earth, offering countless outdoor activities to get your heart racing.
In the heart of the country, you'll find Johannesburg, capital of South Africa and a testament to a nation that has a long and at times dark history. Museums illustrate the horrors and challenges in overcoming apartheid. It's a stark contrast to the beauty of the Kalahari desert, the surf off of the Cape, or the heart of Kruger, but it is an important reminder of what this nation has experienced and the pride of its people in doing so.
