Exploring South Africa

Grahamstown Festival:The Grahamstown National Arts Festival 2009: Africa’s largest cultural event offers a choice of the both local and international talent. Thousands of people flock to Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape to experience a feast of dance, opera, caberet, fine arts, craft arts, music and much much more. Every hall becomes a theatre, parks and sport fields become flea markets. Grahamstown Festival is one of the most diverse festivals in the world.


Kruger National Park: The Kruger National Park (KNP) is in north-east of South Africa and and runs along the border of Mozambique in the east, Zimbabwe in the north, and the southern border is the Crocodile River. The park covers 20,000 square kilometers and is divided in 14 different ecozones, each supporting different wildlife. It is one of the main attractions of South Africa and it is considered the flagship of South African National Parks (SANPark).If youve never explored this mega South African icon, youre really missing out. Dont listen to the mother grundies who say its too developed. Its 20 000sq km with, granted, some tarred roads and huge rest camps, but this is a wild place. You go self-drive, join a night drive, take a self-guided 4x4 trail or even adventure on an escorted mountain bike trail.
