South Africa

South Africa is one of only 17 countries worldwide to be considered ‘megadiverse’. It has about 10% of all the known species of plants on Earth, making it particularly rich in plant biodiversity. It also has numerous national parks, many of which are home to the ‘Big 5’ which so many people flock to South Africa to see. You can easily find a cottage, lodge or holiday home in South Africa in or on the edge of a park or reserve, so you can spend every day wildlife watching, not just for the Big 5, but for some of the smaller and more elusive animals. Kruger National Park alone is the size of Israel, so you will not be short of animal viewing!
