. If you are considering taking a safari holiday or you are in the beginning stages of planning your trip, then you may wish to consider taking a South Africa safari holiday. A South Africa safari trip can take in much more than just the safari element itself, with lots to see and do around Cape Town and Port Elizabeth.
Cape Town can be a great part of any South Africa safari, and it is a must-see for many people. Some South Africa safari tours will give you the opportunity to really explore, and as well as sightseeing will offer the chance to ascend Table Mountain. Cape Town has a great harbour with lots of restaurants for you to enjoy in the evening, or you may even just enjoy taking in the scenery and atmosphere on foot. Lots of South Africa safari tours will incorporate a stay in Cape Town, either for a couple of nights or as a base for the entire trip, so have a look around for one that will include Cape Town if you are keen to experience this destination.
Port Elizabeth is also a great destination to include in your trip if you want to see and do a few more things as well as your safari excursions. South Africa’s coastline has a wide variety of beaches for you to enjoy if you would like a day or two on the sands. There are also lots of boat trips available so that you can view the marine life off the shore, and if you are brave enough you can even hunt out sharks! If the sandy beaches aren’t enough to captivate you, there is the nearby Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was held captive.
There is also the nearby Boulders beach with it’s’ penguin colonies! Further inland you can find the ‘wine lands’, where there are many cellar tours for you to take and try out the local produce and a variety of world class wines. With so much to see and do, many people take a South Africa safari trip which incorporates a variety of activities and places during their stay. There are lots of organised holidays available which will allow you to take a luxury safari through game reserves and national parks, and then also enjoy the beaches, hills and sea tours of the nearby residential areas.
There are many different parks and reserves in South Africa for visitors to enjoy a great range of wildlife. Some will be available for trips and tours to drive slowly through, and some may also have accommodation built inside them for guests to stay in. This can range from hotels to private lodges for guests who are looking for a luxurious private trip. This can be a great way to see a fantastic range of animals up close, and you may even be able to find accommodation which offers exclusive facilities such as room service or private tours to make your trip magical. South Africa has a massive variety of activities and locations for you to enjoy, and you should be able to include as many as you want, to create your perfect safari holiday.
