South African Safari

By: Dean Caporella
A South African safari is high on the list of safari seekers and it's not hard to understand why. While the wildlife and flora is one of the first things you think about when talking African safaris, South Africa has a lot to offer outside of it's main parks. Beaches and resorts for a start and it's one of the better options for a mobile safari.South Africa has one of, if not, the best highway system in Africa and while you would need to familiarize yourself with local road rule customs, it's not difficult to get around. However, a word of warning from those who have made it a lifelong passion to visit this country on many occasions...do not go into areas you know nothing about.Kruger National ParkIf it's wildlife you want to see on a South African safari then Kruger National Park is perfect.

It's high on the list of must see destinations in fact, it's one of the most visited areas in all of Africa. Does this mean it's crowded? No, not at all and if crowds are a concern to you then don't worry; Kruger provides one of the world's most unspoilt wilderness areas. Does it mean you'll have to rough it? Many would jump at the chance at roughing it on safari in Africa however, if your idea of roughing it is five star hotels then Kruger National Park provides accommodation facilities which would be the envy of many of the worlds best accommodation providers.Safari OptionsA South African safari includes a number of options. For example, a stay at Kruger National Park could conceivably see you complete some of the most popular safari options. Here's just a few:- driving through the park and wilderness- sleeping under the stars- walking safari- watch a live huntThe big cats are number one on people's lists of things to see in South Africa. The lion is always the most popular but did you know the leopard, which is extremely elusive, can usually be spotted in the neighboring Sabi Sands. Experienced tour guides can get you a glimpse of this shy cat most of the time.South Africa appeals to many overseas tourists because of it's progress and development and for first time safari seekers, is a great way to get a taste of what an African safari has to offer.?
