South Africa is a haven of spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife, diverse cultures and first world norms, all topped with a healthy and invigorating climate. These qualities make it an adventure destination not to be missed. A country virtually the size of Europe with over 3000 kilometres of unspoiled coastline, boasting climatic differences from the searing hot desert to snow-capped peaks, and varied cultures from the original Bushman to the most Western of ways. You will visit the highlights of this beautiful country, such as Cape Town, Johannesburg and Kruger National Park, before making your way to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. You'll have the chance to spot some of the most amazing creatures like lions, elephants and leopards in their natural habitat as you drive across the wildlife wonderland of Mabula Game Lodge. 

So sit tight and have your binoculars ready - you don't want to miss this.
