In terms of wildlife alone, Kruger is one of the world’s greatest national parks. The diversity, density and sheer numbers of animals is almost unparalleled, and all of Africa’s iconic safari species – elephant, leopard, lion, rhino, cheetah, buffalo, hippo, giraffe, and zebra – live out their dramatic days here, along with a supporting cast of 140 other mammals and over 450varieties of bird. The landscape is on a grand scale, covering 19,485 sq km, and although less in your face than the wildlife, it certainly has the power to charm.

At the end of South Africa’s Garden Route, in the Western Cape province, you’ll come upon the forested town of Knysna which grew around an extensive lagoon of the same name. It’s easy to get into the Knysna spirit as you drive in on the N2 highway from Cape Town. The town is well developed, but it feels as if you’re travelling in woodcutter country. Knysna’s most famed attraction is the Knysna Heads, the treacherous entry into the Knysna lagoon where many an ancient sailing vessel met its doom.

Wine estates worth paying a visit to include Neethlingshof, Delheim, Spier, Saxenburg, Welmoed and Delaire.
