Exotic Vacation Spots: Don’t Compromise Comfort Over Adventure

 

Your passport is filled with stamps from Europe, the U.S. and Canada. Now you seek exotic vacation spots that will be truly memorable. After all, if you’re going to be in a plane for almost 24 non-stop hours, you want relaxation plus revelation!

 

Why South Africa? Answer #1: Safaris

 

The Big 5 animals can be found at Kruger National Park. Lions, Cape buffalo, leopards, elephants and rhinos roam and raise their young here in their natural habitat. Hypothesize whether zebras are white with black stripes or black with white stripes. Marvel at the way giraffes drink water as they splay their forelegs to lower their centre of gravity since their long necks can’t reach.

 

You’ve travelled all this way, so you want to make the most of it. Keep in mind that only those who stay on private game reserves are permitted to go on, under the safety and supervision of reserve staff, bush walks and elephant safaris. Those using the public paths of Kruger National Park are bound by park rules to remain inside vehicles at all times.

 

"5” isn’t a number that only refers to the exotic animals. South Africa is renowned for having the most 5 star accommodations and dining in the continent. You’ll eat well and rest well after exhilarating days in the bushveld. Don’t forget to bring plenty of extra storage/memory cards for your digital camera. And keep room for a great traditional boma braai, a type of South African bonfire barbecue where you enjoy your meal under the African starry night sky.

 

Why South Africa? Answer #2: Cape Town

 

One of the hands-down most beautiful cities in the world, Cape Town is bordered by oceans and tall mountains. By turns rugged with its vast, unspoiled coastline teeming with marine animals, awesome in its breadth of public gardens and cultured with its music, dance, galleries and museums, Cape Town embraces diversity as a "Mother City”. Seek out the rich history of this vacation spot through visits to historical Robben Island or The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. If you want to slow down for an hour or two, savour a glass of South African wine. Or try a glass of iced rooibos, an African red bush plant that is caffeine-free yet high in antioxidants.

 

Travelling Solo?

 

A quality travel provider that truly anticipates its clients’ needs knows not to penalize single travellers with costly single supplements. Women, in particular, are the biggest market for exotic vacation spots. Indeed, the average solo traveller isn’t a 20-something man. It’s a woman in her 40s or 50s. Being part of a small tour group allows comfort in numbers. But knowing she has her own room to herself at the end of each day is something solo adventurers welcome.


Consider South Africa as the place where first class hospitality fuses with unparalleled sightseeing. Dozens of travel websites, newspapers and travellers themselves rave about once-in-a-lifetime trips here, whether on a safari or riding up a cable car to Table Mountain in Cape Town. Capitalizing on an all-inclusive guided tour brings the best that these exotic vacation spots have to offer.
