Abundant Wildlife

Safari game-drive in Hwange Park - Abundant Wildlife | Southern African Safaris | Classic Africa

For many travelers, Africa is about 'safari', a journey to experience this ancient continent's wild places and observe, firsthand and at close quarters, the drama of life and death on its plains. As descendants of this age-old struggle, we humans cannot immerse ourselves into the African theater without feeling a deep sense of déjà vu, a sort of home-coming. The haunting cry of the African fish-eagle, the blood-curdling roar of a lion, and the deep golden eyes of a leopard are some of the features of an African safari that no visitor will soon forget.

And nowhere else in Africa have the protection and conservation of the wilderness and wildlife been so successful as in its southern-most states. Southern Africa is the last bastion for many of the continent's most interesting and unique species of animal. It is here, for example, that you will find the largest herds of elephant in Africa, as well as more than 90% of the continent's rhinos. Diversity is the keyword for Southern African wildlife. South Africa alone is home to more species of mammal than North and South America combined, or Europe and Asia together; its 23,200 species of plant also make it by far the richest country in the world in terms of floral diversity. For the ornithologist, Southern Africa offers over 900 species of birds, more than America and Canada combined in an area a third the size of the USA. With over 3,000 miles of coastline, southern Africa also boasts a wealth of marine life, including six species of whales, one of the world's largest populations of great white sharks, and Africa's only penguins.

Southern Africa has also managed to avoid the scourge of mass tourism which has become a blight in other parts of the continent. Small, exclusive camps and lodges offer the privacy and isolation necessary for a truly intimate and fulfilling African safari, while the sheer wealth and variety of wildlife ensure an unsurpassed encounter with one of the world's last great wilderness sanctuaries.
