Kruger National Park is featured on many South Africa safaris; it's
one of Africa's largest wildlife reserves
. It boasts an abundance
of animals, plant life and natural scenery, as well as archaeological
findings. The "Big Five" dwell here -- lions, elephants, buffalo,
leopards and rhinos -- as do cheetahs, giraffes, hippos, spotted hyenas
and much more. Currently, 147 mammal species can be counted in the
Kruger borders or encompasses several smaller, private wildlife-rich
havens, like the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, also home to the Big
, and Thornybush Private Game Reserve, beloved for its
500-plus bird species

; look for elephants here as well. See pachyderms up
at Addo Elephant National Park. Founded in 1931 to shelter 11
area elephants, it now houses more than 600 of the gentle giants.
In the bustling city of Cape Town
, safari participants can
ride the cable car up Table Mountain
for magnificent views of the
city and the sea. Cape Town also is a gateway for excursions to Cape
Point Nature Reserve
-- a lookout for whales and dolphins -- and
Boulders Beach, where penguins dwell.
With a Mediterranean-like climate and rich soil, the Western Cape is
home to South Africa's wine-producing region
. On some safaris in
South Africa, guests visit wine estates amid the vineyards of
Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.
Many itineraries follow the famous Garden Route
to Knysna. Here,
you can visit an elephant sanctuary
or cruise to the
Featherbed Nature Reserve
. Accessible only by ferry, Featherbed
encompasses sandstone cliffs, sea caves and coastal forests; you might
spot the rare blue duiker here, one of the smallest antelope species.
During time in Johannesburg
, tour guests usually visit the
and the Soweto township
on the city's
outskirts. South Africa vacations also can highlight sites associated
with Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
South Africa safaris are offered throughout the year. Game-viewing in
northern preserves is best from May through August, when temperatures
