Few places on earth can lay claim to such superlative natural wonders as Africa. Located on the southernmost tip of the African continent, South Africa has several distinct ecosystems. Inland safari destination Kruger National Park is populated by lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and Cape buffalo. The Western Cape offers beaches, lush wine lands around Stellenbosch and Paarl, craggy cliffs at the Cape of Good Hope, forest and lagoons along the Garden Route, and, beneath flat-topped Table Mountain, the cityscape of Cape Town, one of the world's most beautiful cities. From almost any vantage point, you will see a mountain or an ocean, and very often both.
Having the opportunity to experience such diverse parts of a country in one vacation makes Olivia’s South Africa Adventure a trip of a lifetime.
