South Africa44South Africa is an enormous country with a simply staggering array of different habitats and wildlife. The most popular destinations include the wonderful winelands of Cape Town and the Garden Route, the tropical hills and pristine coast of Kwazulu-Natal, Kruger National Park and the north-eastern highveld, and the Drakensberg Mountains and historic battlefi elds. We love it because of the huge amount of wildlife - if you go once, you're likely to want to return!

Giant leatherback and loggerhead turtles lay their eggs on the pristine beaches, whilst freshwater lakes and river fl oodplains are the domain of Nile crocodiles, hippos, pelicans and fl amingos. The savannah is home to over 380 bird species and much of Africa's plains game.

This mountain fortress comprises massive basalt cliffs and soaring sandstone buttresses which separate KwaZulu-Natal from the tiny Kingdom of Lesotho.
