South African safari? From bushveld to lowveld, plateau to coast, tropical forests to high up overhead, the spectacular Republic of South Africa is stuffed with animal and bird species to spot all the sunny day long.

Make wildlife watching top of your list when around this mammoth and diverse land, looking out for the African big five (elephants, lions, Cape buffalo, rhinoceroses and leopards) at wildlife havens such as the world-famed Kruger National Park, the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and the Waterberg Biosphere – along with zebras, giraffes, wallowing hippos, speedy cheetahs and over 500 species of bird.

And after that? Beaches are a mammoth must too: South Africa has around 2.500 kilometres of coastline, covering sandy stretches and high cliffs around the sightly Wild Coast, among the penguins of Robben Island and off the surfing and marine mammal spots of Coffee Bay. And then the Garden Route, full of comely forests and lagoons to potter around – and then a sightseeing trip or two around South Africa's cities such as Cape Town and Johannesburg…?

And after that? Other splendid sights and activities while South Africa camping (you'll need a mammoth amount of time) include canoeing or kayaking down the Orange River; hiking the peaks and canyons of the Drakensberg; venturing north from Cape Town to the mountains and vines of South Africa's Winelands, and investigating life, the universe and everything: this part of the continent has some of the oldest human fossil sites in the world, including the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Cradle of Humankind. That needs to be near the top of any South African sightseeing list too.
