South Africa 'great for luxury safaris'

Article content

22 January 2010

People hoping to travel to South Africa for this year's football World Cup competition should also check out the country's wildlife areas while they are there, it has been claimed.

According to Suite 101 writer Charles Anderson, the best game reserve is Mashatu, which is at the edge of the Kalahari desert and shared between South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe.

The attraction - southern Africa's largest private reserve - is home to a large number of different species, he said, ensuring that those who stay for more than four days will still have a variety of wildlife on which to feast their eyes.

Visitors have 75,000 acres of bush habitat to explore and can spot lions, leopards, elephants and hyenas, as well as creatures more unique to Africa, such as impalas, steenboks and khudus, Mr Anderson added.

"All in all, a safari to Mashatu in Botswana could be the frosting on the cake for one's journey to South Africa and the 2010 World Cup football extravaganza," he explained.

Tom Hall, travel editor for Lonely Planet, recently recommended that Kruger National Park be on holidaymakers' itineraries when visiting South Africa, as it is a favourite even for natives.
