South Africa, the country that has it all

Home/Blog, Safari Blog/South Africa, the country that has it all

Idyllic beaches, big cities, majestic mountains and bushveld, South Africa does have it all. Even locals marvel at the diversity of holidays on offer to us in our own country. Travelling between provinces brings a different climate and new landscapes and you will always be in awe of the beauty that surrounds you, whether it is the white beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay with the mountains as a backdrop or the dry bushveld in the Kruger National Park or Madikwe Game Reserve.

As there is so much to see and do, touring this country can be a little daunting and requires forethought and planning. Travelling between areas can be long by road and the vast expanse must be considered when thinking of timing. It is best to consult the experts and Pembury Tours are just the people you need. The team at Pembury Tours will tailor-make a tour for you or you can select from one of their planned itineraries. Either way they will ensure that you make the most of your time and budget while travelling.

One of the areas that is less well known to tourists is the malaria-free safari parks in the Eastern Cape. The largest park in this area is the Addo Elephant Park, which is the meeting point of 5 distinct biomes. This results in a breath-taking variety of animals and bird species and the only place in South Africa that is home to the Big 7; elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, buffalo, great white shark and southern right whale. With its close proximity to the Garden Route and Cape Town a safari in the Eastern Cape is a perfect inclusion on a tour to either of these areas.

Travelling further north you may want to take in the sights and buzz of Johannesburg, an eclectic melting pot and the beating heart of South Africa. It is also a great base from which to enjoy the Kruger National Park or Madikwe or travel a few hours south to the majestic Drakensberg mountains and battlefields of Zululand. This area also offers some of the best scuba diving in the world at Sodwana Bay in the Isimangaliso Wetlands Park, a World Heritage site.

The options are endless, it’s your time here that may be finite. Contact Pembury Tours today to design your dream trip and experience the magic and diversity that is South Africa.
