South Africa is the most popular holiday destination on the continent, with very good reason indeed. Not only does the country boast some superb safari areas that offer malaria-free game reserves - check out the Eastern Cape Safaris -, it is home to some thrilling adventures and nature-orientated activities, including great white shark cage diving and whale watching.
One of Africa's most controversial but exhilarating experiences is the Great White Shark Tours offered in the small town of Gansbaai. With the right company, this is a special wildlife experience.
Every year from June to October southern right and humpback whales migrate to calve in the warmer waters off South Africa's coast. July and August is absolutely perfect.
The Eastern Cape is known as the Adventure Province of South Africa. A major reason for that is the area’s great game reserves - all are malaria free, so they are an excellent option for families.
