Kruger National Park, unfathomably vast, is a game reserve like no other. Home to the Big Five (lion, cheetah, elephant, buffalo, black rhino) and its sheer size allows for a change in terrain from dusty savannah to acacia groves. It is well organised, with good roads and plenty of camps.

Cape Town's refined atmosphere, with colonial architecture, is suited more to holidaymakers than adventurers, but within the Table Mountain National Park there are plenty of opportunities for game spotting, rock climbing and trekking, plus the coast provides excellent surfing and scuba diving. Instead, enjoy the sedate pace of life, with high end shopping and fine dining galore, and the glorious view from Table Mountain. Less primed for visitors are Johannesburg, still recovering from its battle scars, and Durban, the gateway to Zululand and, undoubtedly, some of the more breaktaking nature reserves.

South Africa's winelands are particularly beautiful. Many hotels arrange day trips, with wine tastings and lunch. Try Stellenbosch for a taste of the Dutch settlers, and Franschhoek for fine dining galore.
