Without question, South Africa is one of the best safari destinations in the world.
South Africa provides multiple safari destinations where you will have the chance to see the ‘Big Five’ (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino).
There is something about the opportunity to see these animals in the wild, a rare glimpse at nature at its finest. Beautiful granite kopjes (hills) pepper the south, the Lebombo Mountains rise from the savannah in the east, and tropical forests cover the north of the giant park.
A Lions tour is a special experience and the chance to not only see the greatest touring rugby team in the world but enjoy moments of a lifetime and make incredible memories. Whether that’s a lion on the prowl in the wilderness or a shark leaping along the coast, South Africa has a touch of everything and is not to be missed.
Kruger National Park
Kruger National Park boasts an impressive 2 million hectares and is home to an extraordinary number of species. It is one of the most famous and largest nature reserves in the world and is nationally known as a home to the Big Five. It has more than 12,000 elephants, 10,000 rhinos, 27,000 Buffalo and 2,500 Lions and Leopards. Check out Kruger National Park to find out the different ways to explore the park.
Pilanesberg and Sun City
Tours to Sun City or Pilanesburg include a visit to Pilanesberg National Park, another of South Africa’s great animal-spotting locations. The game reserve within it is home to the “Big Five” (Cape buffalo, lion, leopard, African elephant, black rhinoceros) – as well as myriad zebra, hippo, gi-raffe, crocodile and antelope. Regular sightings are guaranteed. But is it also worth lifting an eye to the landscape – which is among the most remarkable places on the African continent.
