South Africa

What can I say, South Africa delivers.  From stunning Kruger National Park to the Winelands, to the famous Garden Route which has been long considered one of the greatest drives on earth.  The best land based whale watching, and plenty of opportunities to get into the water, including diving with Great White sharks. There is world class hiking, sea kayaking, road and mountain biking.  South Africa is home to two of the most famous luxury trains in the world, the Blue Train and Rovos Rail, both evoking the Golden Age of rail travel.  Of course, many visitors wish to learn about apartheid museums.  The Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site with its famous fossil filled caves. By far the most complete hominid skeletons in the world have been found here, dating back two million years.  Johannesburg is the Golden Diamond capital of the world.  You can tour the diamond mines.  The awesome vastness of the Kalahari Desert and its unique collection of wildlife is like an entirely different country stuck into South Africa.  tid bits & maps
