South African Wildlife

There is no better life than Wildife in Africa!

The world is big and wide and so much to see. However, one experience remains incredibly special – a day (or night) out with the South African wildlife. These photos were mostly captured in game reserves in northern South Africa, where much of the South African wildlife is concentrated.  The largest national game reserve, the Kruger National Park, is huge and stretches along the Mozambican border all the way up to Zimbabwe. Several smaller national and provincial parks, as well as many private game reserves all cater to wildlife enthusiasts. South Africa is truly a wildlife paradise!
