The diversity of the rainbow nation can be seen not only through its diverse population but also through its many varied biomes. It is also home to the Cape floristic kingdom, the most diverse floral kingdom in existence, found only in the fynbos region of the Cape. In a country where you can see elephants, hippos and great white sharks in the same park, you will never cease to be amazed.
We lived in South Africa for 3 years and got to explore several regions from the Cape to the Lowveld. Living near Kruger National Park was an incredible experience due to the fantastic locals that welcomed us with open arms and the incredible wildlife and lush vegetation of the Lowveld. We thoroughly recommend visiting these areas and through these posts we’ll show you how to.
It was South Africa that made us fall in love with Africa and its people, in particular the Kruger National Park. We have spent hundreds of hours in Kruger and we still can’t get enough. We also visited many other national parks such as Mkuze, Addo Elephant National Park, Hluhluwe Imfolozi… and all are unique in their own way providing incredible experiences that make you want to go back again and again.
Cape Town is like a whole other world on its own, you wouldn’t believe you were in Africa when you see its world class hotels and restaurants. All of this with Table Mountain dominating the city providing a spectacular backdrop from any angle. A drive down the peninsula is a must do, and make sure you stop to see the African penguins at Boulders Beach.
