Game viewing throughout the entire South Africa is pretty amazing. The wildlife that can be seen in its natural habitat is spectacular, but nowhere is it quite as spectacular as in the Kruger National Park. The absolute most amazing sightings can be seen right in South Africa’s largest National Park, the mighty Kruger. The sheer size of this park means that you can experience a number of different landscapes all in one park. Different landscapes make for different habitats which make for a whole new range of species that can be spotted.
Elephants are such intricate animals. They have shown to possess compassion and the ability to feel sadness and joy. They carry all the oldest secrets of the bush and they are currently under threat. As numbers of elephants have decreased by some 350% in the last 70 years and by 110 000 elephants in the last ten years (Great Elephant Census) due to poaching and habitat loss it is very important that the safety of these magnificent creatures are taken into our own hands. This is exactly what Adventures with Elephants have done.
It has reached that point of the year that everybody is in dire need of a break. The stress of the year is becoming too much. Do not over stress yourself. Rather spoil yourself with a well-deserved break to build up the ever so needed energy to finish the year off. There is no better place to do this than at Trogon House.
Visiting the Kruger National Park is a definite must when visiting the beautiful South Africa. It is a park we South Africans take great pride in as all possible efforts are made to keep it natural and clean. A lot of outside investment is needed to keep the park poacher free so in going there you are also making a contribution to a great cause.
In our quest to experience first-hand or from nearby the cultures of those alien to us we have crossed borders all over the African continent. It is an extremely large continent though and the numbers of different cultures are many. Remember that we prefer to stick to what is true and natural and stay away from the pretentious cultural experiences.
South Africa has recently celebrated Woman’s Day and in this country it means quite a bit. It is no secret that South Africa and the African continent in general is not the safest place in the world. This is very true especially for woman who endure violence and suffering each day. This day does not only celebrate African Woman but also the struggle they go through. As safety is such a big thing, this blog is dedicated to safe places for woman to travel alone to.
Cape Town and in actual fact the entire South Africa have currently got so much to be thankful for. The Cape has been blessed with its desperately needed rain and there is light at the end of this scary tunnel called drought. In the spirit of rain and because it’s the end of July and we can start looking forward to spring, let’s go on a flower filled adventure.
Each year when spring hits, the Cape delivers proof of the winter rains in the form of flowers, hundreds of beautiful; colourful flowers. There are many ways to experience this gorgeous phenomenon and people come from all over the country, continent and globe to see this botanical masterpiece.
One of the world’s most breath-taking waterfalls can be found on the unique continent called Africa. It is, in actual fact, the greatest curtain of falling water in the world. This spectacular wonder from Mother Nature is called the Victoria Falls and it most definitely deserves a spot on your African Bucket List. Previously known by locals as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ that translates into “the smoke that thunders”.
