South Africa boasts some of the best lodges in Africa. The diversity of ecological areas creates a number of unique habitats to visit, from the dry Kalahari desert to the lush estuaries of St Lucia, and the popular bushveld found around the Kruger Park.
South Africa is a fairly large country. It is about the size of western europe and about 5 times larger than Britain.
South Africa has a very distinctive topography. A large interior forming a great plateau surrounded by mountains known as the Great Escarpment. The Great Escarpment almost encompasses the entire coast of South Africa and divides the narrow coastal bent and the interior.
This contrasting landscape offers a rich diversity in vegetation and geology. This in turn creates a wealth of habitats for wildlife.
South Africa has a rich abundance of game reserves and the Game Lodges found in these reserves are world class, often winning international awards. From 5 star excellence to the modest 3 star lodge, one can find the right accommodation to fit your taste and enhance you vacation in South Africa.
There are ample opportunities across the country to enjoy the Big Five (bygone hunters named the big 5 - elephant, lion, rhino, leopard and buffalo as they were the most dangerous animals to hunt.)Just as exciting to see are the other more than 200animal species each with their own unique presence.
The country's most famous Big Five areas include the massive Kruger Park and the surrounding private reserves, the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park in KwaZulu-Natal, the Pilanesberg in North West Province and the Addo Park area in the Eastern Cape.
