South Africa Vacations

South Africa is located on the most southern peninsula of the African Continent. The country is noted for its biodiversity and numerous wildlife and game parks. Huge stretches of savannah grasslands, whose ecosystems are protected by national and provincial park systems, plus game reserves stretch across the countryside. In total there are over 17 National Parks scattered across South Africa; not including the provincial parks and game reserves. The South Atlantic and the Indian Ocean merge at the southern most point in South Africa, Cape Point. And the coastal area of South Africa stretches for over 3000 kilometers and is known for its beautiful beaches, remote villages and perfect surfing destinations. Searching for the perfect beach? You have multiple options: Capetown beaches are brimming with people. Or you can head up the eastern coast to the experience what is known as the Wild Coast or even go further north to the Zulu Region, where you can enjoy the sea and surf all to yourself. South Africa is also known for their historic wine regions. Wine vineyards were introduced by the Dutch East India Company and Jan Van Riebeeck during 1659; and South Africa has been producing their own delicious wines ever since.
