When considering a safari tour every person’s expectations might be different. For example someone would prefer to see the larger animals such as the big five. Others have a more delicate taste and desire to do bird watching or explore the habitat of smaller animals. No matter what your preference may be, everyone wants to see the animals in their natural environment. Living in South Africa makes safari tours a real possibility as all the tours are easily accessible and in near proximity to all of the major cities. We recently stayed at Ashanti Backpackers Greenpoint Cape Town which offers an impressive selection of tour offers, overland trips and even shark cage diving tours.
The country of Botswana which borders Namibia, Zimbabwe and South Africa does not require a long journey from the major northern cities in South Africa and offers many safari adventures.
Namibia is well within the reach of Cape Town and most of the towns in the Northern Cape. Due to its very dry conditions it makes it an ideal spot to view all types of unique wildlife, including many reptile species.
South Africa is not without its own share of wildlife and Nature Reserves, with overland tours and safaris tours easily available in all of the nine provinces.
