Join me on an epic adventure in beautiful South Africa.

South Africa is a true nature lover’s paradise and offers some of the most diverse and stunning landscapes in the entire African continent. From the arid Karoo and Kalahari semideserts to the misty old-growth forests of the Garden Route (included) and the impressive Blyde River Canyon, not to mention the iconic Table Mountain. It boasts two of the world's most dramatic coastal roads (included) leading to Cape Point and Hermanus, extensive vineyards with world class wine, and carpets of colorful wildflowers in the Western Cape (included).

South Africa is one of the continent's best safari destinations (safari included), offering the Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) experience.  In addition to these popular animals there are more than 200 mammals species including hippopotamus, giraffes, wildebeest and zebras, African Wild dog, Hyenas, Kudu and Eland, to name just a few. With 22 national parks spanning 3.7 million hectares (about 4% of the country’s total area, South Africa is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts.   

Besides mammals, South Africa has over 800 bird species, including the world’s largest bird, the Ostrich.  Other species include a variety of bee-eaters, turacos, parrot, rollers, waxbills and hornbills, and even Penguins. Around 35 bird species are more-or-less endemic to South Africa.  There are several sites in South Africa, most notably perhaps Kruger, where a moderately skilled birder could tick 100 species in a day.  

The waters surrounding South Africa offer as much diversity as is found on dry land. There are eight whale species including the largest mammal in the world, the blue whale as well as the popular killer whale. The southern right whale is a conservation success story in South Africa and have been protected in South Africa since 1935 and numbers are on the rise.  The clifftop town of Hermanus (included as we will be visiting in peak whale season) offers the world’s finest land-based whale-watching, while other marine wildlife attractions range from caged shark dives at Gans Bay to the penguin colony at Cape Town’s Boulders Beach (included) and dolphins that frequent many of the country’s bays.

Get your cameras ready for an adventure of a lifetime!
