Geographically speaking, South Africa has a stunning array of landscapes within its borders. With a coastline that stretches over 2500 kilometres (1600 miles) along the crystal clear Atlantic and Indian Oceans, the dramatic scenery continues beyond the coast over the escarpment and into the central plateau. The savannahs and wetlands in the north east of country feel completely foreign to the folding mountains of Cape Town and the old growth forests of the Garden route.
One of South Africa's famous landmarks, Table Mountain's steep cliffs and rocky outcrops are home to a number of animals and approximately 1,470 species of plants. Looking into the great escarpment of the Blyde River Canyon it is easy to understand why this is the kind of place where brochures and guidebooks run out of original adjectives to describe the magnificent panoramic views. Cliffs rise between 600-800 m (2,000-2,640 feet) from the river bed with huge rock spirals rising out of the canyon and tops that appear to have a hut-like rounded roof.
Between all these wild landscapes, are some of South Africa's most famous residents. The "Big Five", the lion, leopard, rhinoceros (both black and white species), elephant, and Cape buffalo. Out of all of South Africa's game reserves, none are as well known as Kruger National Park. The Kruger Park is an enormous area of flat veld, broken by rivers and comprised of mixed vegetation and terrain. The park, officially founded in 1926, supports more species of wildlife than any other African reserve. Over 137 mammal species, 49 fish species, 112 reptile species, and nearly 500 bird species are located within Kruger. Birders will also enjoy a chance to explore the Mkuze Game reserve, with more than 420 different bird species on record.
Historically and politically speaking, South Africa is still a very young country. With the Apartheid only coming to an end in the 1990s, no trip to the country is complete without understanding this brutal and discriminatory part of history. At the Robben Island historic site, formerly an infamous prison and today a museum, one can learn about Apartheid era freedom fighters, including Nelson Mandela, who were incarcerated at Robben Island. The Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg is equally as insightful. Both shed light on the extremely heavy topic of recent segregation.
Our South Africa group tours are the perfect chance to enjoy a little of everything, and to discover a country currently with so much to offer as well as so much promise for the future.
