In Cape Town you see the seventh natural wonder of the world, Table Mountain, from every angle…while no mountain range compares to the majesty found in Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
In St. Lucia, you get to watch the mighty snap of the Hippo and work in a local Zulu village, where in Kruger you are entirely surrounded by the African Big 5.
