This week, we want to highlight South Africa.
It has it all, whether you are seeking a Big Five safari experience, cosmopolitan cities, a rainbow nation of richly diverse cultures, or spectacular scenery!
Let us take you there now.
South Africa is a country with a vibrant culture and a rich history.
There are three capital cities, and the country has 11 official languages, including Zulu and English. South Africa was officially colonized in 1652.
Are you aware that some of the best fossils of early dinosaurs have been found in the Karoo region in the Western Cape? It is estimated that almost 80% of the dinosaur fossils found to-date were found in the Karoo!
From hippos, majestic elephants, and speedy cheetahs, South Africa is home to diverse wildlife. Safari game drives take place early morning and late afternoon into the early evening.
It is highly recommended to rise early when the animals are most lively for a morning game drive. Be ready to capture panoramic shots of the abundance of wildlife everywhere. You are sure to be fascinated by your wildlife experience.
South Africa has a rich heritage of traditional herbal remedies thanks to its abundance of indigenous plants known for their healing properties. With nearly 9,000 plant species found naturally in this area, it’s no surprise that many of South Africa’s traditional remedies are based on plants’ curative properties. Rooibos is a bush that only grows in the Western Cape and has 50 times more antioxidants than green tea.
The sour-fig plant is widespread across South Africa’s coastal regions. The plant’s fruit is used to make jam, while the leaves’ juice is considered to have antiseptic properties and used to treat cuts, insect bites, and sunburn.
One of the iconic natural attractions in South Africa is Victoria Falls. This UNESCO world heritage site is a must-see attraction. For the daredevil, hike your way to Devil’s Pool, where you can stand, sit, or swim in a rock lip overlooking a 100-meter drop.
From safaris to surfing, this country has so much to offer. Travel there with friends, family, or even solo; just be sure to savor the memories and enjoy every moment of your trip.
We strive to create a unique, unforgettable, and magical journey to Africa to suit your travel style. Let us know if you would like to be included in receiving more information about a future group trip to South Africa.
