f one must single out one reason why so many nature lovers, and especially Bushdrifters, love to visit Southern Africa it must surely be our wildlife and the relatively easy manner in which our wildlife may be enjoyed. It does not help if you want to take a picture of a wild animal, and it starts running away when it sees your vehicle appearing over the horizon. In Southern Africa, you have many parks and reserves where you can come to almost touching distance from wild animals, not that you may want to actually touch them, but it makes for excellent game-viewing and game photography (touching them is obviously not be a good idea, it is unlawful and also scares them away).

S

eeing wildlife in Southern Africa is not difficult. Just take a good map and check all the nature areas. Some are small indeed, but still offers a place where you can be close to nature. The best is to cover the distance to a National Park, a Provincial Park or Reserve. There are are also numerous private parks with luxury lodges where you can experience nature and also get spoilt to the extreme(at a price, of course).

T

he different parks and reserves are situated in wildly different areas and climates, ensuring a wide diversity between parks, with each park or reserve having its own biodiversity. So, if diversity is what you are looking for, Southern Africa is again the place to visit, especially if you can stretch your visit into a longer period, so that you do not have to rush and be able to appreciate the beautiful diversity of the places.

  Forget the past, it is over now - you have the future and the now to plan it in.
