Why go? Witnessing animals in their natural habitat is soul food of the highest order. Children and teenagers especially enjoy the adventure that comes with heading into the bush on a massive Jeep looking for signs of life. The country’s game reserves are fantastic, but some offer just a touch more.
Accommodation: Thula Thula is a much loved reserve in northern Natal, only two hours from Durban, for the founder’s dedication to a herd of elephants that were going to be culled.
