South Africa

The most southern of the African countries boasts an unmatched diversity with eight different biomes. Grassland, forest, fynbos and desert make South Africa as rich in landscapes as it is in people and cultures. Desmond Tutu called post-apartheid South Africa the ‘Rainbow Nation’ for a reason after all: Discover marvellous metropolises like Cape Town and Johannesburg, hot spots for first-time safari goers including the famous Kruger National Park and the Sabi Sand as well as long stretches of wild coast where you’ll discover the Marine Big Five and so much more.
OVERVIEW

There are few places in the world that are so intriguing from so many different aspects. Whether it’s history, natural beauty, wildlife and cultural diversity, South Africa has it all. Some say you can explore the whole world in one country in South Africa. This is the ultimate destination for your first-time African safari. But it’s so much more than that, it’s an unforgettable trip to Africa showcasing the wealth and diversity this continent has to offer.

Starting in the Cape – the smallest floral kingdom in the world – with its indigenous fynbos (fine bush) and flower beds redefine the term ‘flower power’. Along the Cape stretches one of the wildest coasts in the world, the waters being inhabited by sharks, seals, whales, even penguins and many more. A highlight for many is Cape Town, a gourmet metropolis surrounded by breathtaking beaches, iconic mountains and award-winning wine farms.

Move inland where you will find pure bliss and tranquillity in the Karoo and Kalahari deserts. The most famous of the world’s wildlife reserves, the Kruger National Park is home to the famous Big Five, which you can also come up close to in the stunning tropical bushland of KwaZulu-Natal for a real South African safari. We at AMADI will help you make this an Africa vacation of a lifetime.
