With a very distinctive topography, South Africa has a large interior forming a great plateau surrounded by mountains along the coastal area known as the Great Escarpment. The Great Escarpment almost encompasses the entire coast of South Africa and divides the narrow coastal bent and the interior.
This contrasting landscape offers a rich diversity in vegetation and geology. This in turn creates a wealth of habitates for wildlife.
There are ample opportunities across the country to enjoy the Big Five (bygone hunters named the big 5 - elephant, lion, rhino, leopard and buffalo as they were the
most dangerous animals to hunt.)Just as exciting to see are the other more than 200 animal species each with their own unique presence.
South Africa's most famous Big Five areas include the massive Kruger Park and the surrounding private reserves, the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park in KwaZulu-Natal, the Pilanesberg in North West Provice and the Addo Park area in the Eastern Cape.
