Africa's southern tip is nothing short of a treasure-chest. Travellers from all around the globe are attracted to South Africa because of its magnificent climate, cultural diversity, wonderful attractions and a massive assortment of wildlife. The country has everything from the densest forests to the driest deserts, both of which are home to thousands of animal species and exclusive flora. The Big Five (Lion, Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo and Leopard), however, tend to be the drawcard and watching them walk with pride in their natural habitat is an experience like no other. The national parks and game reserves of the nation have acquired cult status because of their conservational efforts and flawless hospitality. Getting to stay in one of the many lodges/camps of these protected areas is a once in a lifetime opportunity and must therefore not be missed.
Best Time To Visit: May to September (Dry Season)
