SOUTH AFRICA & KENYA SOJOURN
South Africa, officially known as the Republic of South Africa, is a great place to visit for a first-time safari. You'll find classic African scenery: golden savannah, great gaping gorges, and hauntingly beautiful deserts, as well as an awe-inspiring cast of African creatures — and, as a bonus — all the creature comforts.
Apart from the big-name game parks of Kruger and the Kgalagadi (Kalahari) Transfrontier Park, South Africa is home to some of the world's most luxurious private game reserves and lodges. Wildlife lovers come here from all corners of the globe in search of the "Big Five": lion, buffalo, leopard, rhino, and elephant, and often they find it, and so much more.SIGHTSEEING AND EXCURSIONS
