Catching Up…Pilanesberg (Feb), Klein Karoo (March) and The Okavango (April) 2017
PILANESBERG NATIONAL PARK AND GAME RESERVE. In Northwest province next to Sun City and only two hours by road from Johannesburg you can find The Big Five here plus hundreds of birds.
If you think the bush is just about Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga and Limpopo, think again and come to the Cape.
SANBONA WILDLIFE RESERVE is just three hours from Cape Town and at 54 000ha is the fourth largest private game reserve in South Africa. Expect lots of game (including one of the only free-roaming prides of white lions in the world), but it is the breathtaking scenery that will thrill you.
MADI-MADI KAROO SAFARI LODGE just outside Oudtshoorn must surely lay claim to being one of the most hidden, unknown and tranquil places in South Africa.
THE OKAVANGO DELTA is one of the great natural wonders of the world. This unique inland delta spreads out fan-shaped into northwestern Botswana bringing the waters of the Okavango River from the Angolan highlands. The result is a winding and wandering complex of papyrus-fringed channels, still lakes home to hippos and crocodiles, and deep waterlily-studded pools. It's teeming with game, birds and stunning scenery and is truly one of the last great natural wilderness areas left on earth.
