Things to know

Different vegetation and climate zones

In South Africa the climate can be extremely dry and hot, like in the Kalahari desert, but also very humid, like in the subtropical forests near Mozambique. On the coast, however, there is a strong maritime climate and on the higher mountains there is also snow in winter.

Species-rich animal world

Particularly in the national parks you can visit the indescribably varied flora and fauna of the country. The Kruger National Park is home to three hundred mammal species, around one hundred reptile species and more than five hundred bird species. Not to forget the countless insect species that live in South Africa. Apart from the big game species such as lion, buffalo, leopard, elephant and rhino, South Africa is also home to giraffes, hippos, cheetahs, wild dogs, hyenas and many other animals.

In South Africa, music plays an important role that has been shaped by many musical styles, such as rock, pop and jazz. Mbaqanga is a style of music that combines traditional influences and danceable rhythms.

2. Visit the "Big Five" in the national parks

If you have always wanted to see the five largest animals in Africa on a safari in the open air, then a vacation rental in South Africa is the perfect place to start. The Big Five include the elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard that live in national parks such as Kruger National Park, Ithalan Game Reserve, Addo Elephant National Park and Augrabies Falls National Park.
