Year Visited: 2018 – Feb / Mar
South Africa is a country on the southernmost tip of the African continent, marked by several distinct ecosystems. Inland safari destination Kruger National Park is populated by big game. The Western Cape offers beaches, lush wine-lands around Stellenbosch and Paarl, craggy cliffs at the Cape of Good Hope, forest and lagoons along the Garden Route, and the city of Cape Town, beneath flat-topped Table Mountain.
South Africa often referred to as the “rainbow nation” because of its multi-ethnic society encompassing a wide variety of cultures, languages, and religions.
During Feb-Mar of 2018 I joined a 2+ weeks overland tour visiting one national park to another, covering six major national parks of South Africa, eSwatini (Swaziland) and Lesotho. I had most wonderful time and met amazing people during the tour.
