It's the weekend, is your squad ready? Don’t just go on a safari and see the Big 5 get the whole experience and camp out at Kruger National Park. Maybe you’ve already stayed at one of the Kruger National Park’s many camps, but have you considered sleeping out in one of their overnight hides? The two hides – Sabie, near Phalaborwa Gate, and Shipandani, near Mopani Camp – are very basic but you’ll have a thrilling African bush experience. The Kruger National Park has accommodation suitable for all budgets, from camping to extreme luxury, but now there’s the wonderful opportunity to camp out in one of the park's overnight hides. Thank you @jessicampesino for the awesome snap. #MeetSouthAfrica #SouthAfrica #thisissouthafrica #exploresouthafrica #Travelgram #wanderlust #travelsouthafrica #safari #KrugerNationalPark #Big5 #CampingSafari

Champagne Sports Resort in the Central Drakensberg is the perfect venue for both business and leisure tourists. The resort is home to an 18-hole championship golf course, roaming herds of blesbok and impala and 5 dams stocked with trout and bass. It offers a variety of sports and cultural activities. This resort set in the tranquil surrounds of the Central Drakensberg, with magnificent views of Champagne Castle and Cathkin Peak, combines high-tech conferencing, luxury accommodation and first-rate leisure activities. BEST TIME TO VISIT The Drakensberg is a year-round destination - although it can be cool in winter, especially when there is snow on the mountains. Great snap from @suthcrank. #MeetSouthAfrica #SouthAfrica #thisissouthafrica #exploresouthafrica #Travelgram #wanderlust #travelsouthafrica #Drakensberg #adventure

The Victoria Street Market in Durban is unique in South Africa. Barrels of Indian spices and incense infuse the air of this flea market and a visit is essential for those who want to experience Durban's relaxed Afro-Oriental atmosphere and pick up some great bargains. The market is a melting pot of vibrancy and you’ll definitely walk out with a souvenir or two.
