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 park.

Kruger borders or encompasses several smaller, private wildlife-rich havens, like the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, also home to the Big Five, and Thornybush Private Game Reserve, beloved for its 500-plus bird species.

The Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve protects endangered black and white rhinos; look for elephants here as well. See pachyderms up close 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 Apartheid Museum 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 are mild and animals gather at water sources. Peak travel in the southern regions takes place during the months of October to March.
