Africa’s majestic wildlife is undoubtedly the major drawcard, but add to this stunning scenery, adrenalin pumping outdoor activities, world-class restaurants and wineries, and serious shopping, and you’ve got a holiday for everyone. After an animal encounter? There are more than a dozen national parks to explore. The largest is Kruger National Park, home to the holy grail of African nature spotting “the big five” – elephants, lions, leopards, rhinoceroses and buffalo. It’s also a great spot for bushwalking, mountain biking and four-wheel driving.
