A few more reasons why you've gotta go…

  • 1. South Africa, environmentally diverse, has deserts, mountains, escarpments, plateaus, grasslands, bush, wetlands, and subtropical forests
  • 2. Stay in that jeep because South Africa is home to three of the five fastest land animals in the world: the cheetah, lion, and (surprisingly) the wildebeest
