South Africa

South Africa is one of the most geographically varied countries of the African continent, comprising territory that ranges from the rolling, fertile plains of the highveld and the wide open savanna of the Eastern Transvaal to the Kalaharidesert and the peaks of the Drakensberg Mountains.

While all of its diverse regions offer ample opportunities for adventure travel, the focus in South Africa–as in much of sub-Saharan Africa–is the safari.

In addition to possessing two of the world’s most renowned wildlife reserves, the Kruger and the Kalahari Gemsbok National Parks, the country contains over a dozen smaller regional parks and reserves. In addition, with its excellent road and rail systems, its abundance of top-rated accommodations, and its bountiful farmlands and vineyards, South Africa allows visitors ample opportunity for more luxurious comfort along with adventuresome excitement.
