hippo pet in south africahttp://partneruganda.wordpress.com/2013/05/03/partner-uganda-announces/comment-page-1/. In Kenya and Tanzania you are able to enjoy the superb migration of wildebeest and their potential predators traverse the Serengeti and in the Kruger Park in South Africa, the waterless months will move the animals out from the bush to all the best waterholes. Cape Town is a quality vacation spot as it will give you the chance to blend the beach and the bush, even in winter.

http://player.youku.com/embed/XMzczNDk2MDEyDurban is a decent beach hot spot any time of the year, due to the warm water of the Indian Ocean. The cold water of the Atlantic Ocean does not bother surfers in Cape Town. If going into the water seems like a bad thought, you can test amazing cuisine in one of the numerous eateries along the beaches of Cape Town.

You will never be dull or not doing anything when you visit Cape Town. Although the beach and swimming laps are not quite on the top of the list in winter, there are plenty of other places to explore. Understand South African heritage by taking a trip to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela and many other anti-Apartheid activists spent jail terms. There are an awful lot of markets for those looking for a good bargain or a thing good to eat, so make sure you pop into Neighbourgoods at the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock on a Saturday morning or the Hout Bay Market, which runs the whole weekend.

The Cape is bliss for nature nuts. Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, about a 15-minute drive from the city-centre, offers an amazing botanical experience. Taking a stroll through the Company Gardens or one of the distinct nature reserves in the neighbouring area is a marvellous way to spend the day. Home to the Cape Floral Kingdom, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, your adoration of flowers is sure to be appeased.

A winter safari close to Cape Town is yet another way of getting close to nature. Stop by a Western Cape safari park. At these game reserves you can see an array of marvelous wildlife and loosen up in opulence and elegance.

Another intriguing characteristic of Cape Town winter safaris is the chance to see wild animals in snow. The snow in these safari areas is as a consequence of the tremendously cold temperatures that these places close to Cape Town experience in winter. So if a snow safari sounds like something you want to test, book a winter safari at a Cape Town game reserve.

While you are on safari you can keep a lookout for the applauded Big Five. Hear the lion roar; be blown away at the enormity of elephants, the rambunctious rhino and the big buffalo, while keeping your eyes open for the enigmatic leopard when you go on a Big Five safari. But it does not end with the Big 5 and you will be in a position to see many other wild animals while on safari. You will come upon cheetahs, zebras, giraffes, hippos and impala during game drives, with eager field guidestelling you all about the routines of the creatures of the bush.

The luxury accommodation will be sufficiently warmed, but remember to pack lots of warm things, and the scorching food items and coffee will verify a warm greeting at the game lodge.

There is a lot of complex beauty in the Karoo, where you will find several safari parks. This is a very different region to the typical safari resorts, ensuring that you have a completely authentic holiday.
