South Africa

Land of contrasts by its landscapes, as well as by its climate, its inhabitants or its wildlife, South Africa will give you a complete change of scenery.

From the semi-arid bush of the Karoo National Park to the mountains of the Drakensberg and the beautiful beaches of the coast, each scenery takes you away.

This diversity can also be found in its inhabitants that speak no less than eleven official languages, even though English is understood and spoken by almost everyone. Far from feeling resentful toward the tourists after the apartheid, the South Africans are very welcoming people.

As far as the wildlife is concerned, South Africa is home to the famous Big 5 (buffalos, elephants, leopards, lions, rhinos), but also to dozens of antelopes and predators species, giraffes, reptiles and birds.
