Hostelling International Tripbook for

South Africa for nature-lovers

13 Entries

Stay at one of our hostels in South Africa and you may find yourself trekking through the bush in search of the Big Five, getting soaked by a humpback whale off the Garden Route coast, gazing in awe at the imposing Drakensburg mountain range, or being awoken in the night by the cry of a jackal. Lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino make up the famous Big Five – try to spot them all from the safety of a ‘bakkie’ – an open-topped safari vehicle. Or take a trip to the sandy and idyllic beaches of Southbroom where you can explore the rock pools or snorkel to discover exotic marine life below the sea line. Stay in the dramatically beautiful Cape Town and head to the top of Table Mountain where you can see the sparkling city from above, lapped at by the gentle waves of the South Atlantic.
