Jungle is always my favorite destination. I love the thrill, mysteries, darkness and surprises of jungle. That’s why; I am attracted to the Savanna Safari of Africa again and again. Till date, I have visited this great country over five times to explore the natural, cultural and historical resources. My extensive experience of touring in Africa has given me a confidence to guide you on the African safari. You will get the unique combination of ancient villages and cosmopolitan cities in this country.
Tourist Attractions: Game watching is the most attractive part of African Safari. The Savanna is the residence of lions, cheetah, leopard, white rhino, elephants, wildebeast, giraffe, hyenas, impalas, hippopotamus, bison and many other wild animals. The best place for wild life safari is Kruger National Park. Whenever I visit this place the childhood memories of movies such as Born Free, Hatari and many other wild life movies seem to come out from the screen right in front of me. Wild life safari is not only about game watching, it is the place where you can encounter the ancient Mother Nature under the canopy of blue sky and giant baobab trees.
You can experience the best land based whale watching to gain a memory of life time. I could not forget the moment when I had eye contact with this sea giant. There are various places where you can watch this enormous creatures like Garden Route, Wild Coast, Cape South Coast and many other places. But my suggestion is to prefer Hermanus, the whale watching capital of South Africa. Once we hired a whale watching board to get a closer view of the largest animal of the world.
Apart from wildlife, another point of attraction is the scenic beauty of South Africa. You should not miss a visit to Cape Town which is famous for the natural beauty, picturesque beaches, magnificent table mountain and many other things. South Africa is the heaven for food lovers. The world famous wines that truly mesmerize your senses are found at the Cape Wine route. You can enjoy world class cuisine amidst the green valleys smeared with an essence of history.
If you want to feel the heart beat of South Africa, then Johannesburg must be in your list of destinations. This ‘City of Gold’ offers a vast range of shopping experiences, variety of cuisines, adventures tour and endless entertainment. Along with that, there are some other places like Durban Beachfront, Robben Island, Soweto, Blyde River Canyon Natural Reserve, which I suggest; you must include in your travel schedule.
How to Get There: South Africa has 3 national airports along with 53 border posts. Travelling from any part of the world to South Africa is quite convenient and easy. Apart from that, this country has eight ports in which two are international.
Best Time to Travel: As a frequent traveler to South Africa, I told you that this country has different beauties in different seasons. For game watching, the best part of the year is July to September and to enjoy the exquisiteness of flora and fauna, August and September are the best time. For adventurous sports, summer is the best season.
