Wildlife holidays in South Africa

Kruger National Park needs no introduction – it’s home to the Big Five, and easily accessible for a classic safari holiday. But there’s more to a wildlife holiday in South Africa than elephants, lions and buffalo. Around Cape Town, chattering penguins waddle along beaches, while whales and dolphins – and great white sharks! – cruise offshore. You can also visit private reserves and even take part in leopard conservation activities, alongside researchers and scientists.
