The Drakensberg Mountains provide a barrier between the east coast and the inland creating the Karoo which is dry sheep and ostrich country.
The Green Garden Route is a beautiful drive up the east coast through verdant forests, passed small towns like George and Knysna which are quaint coastal towns which are popular with travelers.
Natal is a popular beach region with warmer seas and good coastal resorts, for families to holiday. The game reserves there are well known Hluhluwe, Umfolozi and Ndumu.
The wildlife areas are limited to the Lowveld of the Mpumulanga/ Kruger regions in the eastern Lowveld and the Waterberg Limpopo area north of Johannesburg. The Waterberg region is Malaria free because of the altitude and cooler climate.
The Greater Kruger encompasses a huge area, equated to just less than South Carolina (83000sq.miles cf 77000sq miles/200000sq km). It includes the Kruger National Park, (7700sq miles /20000sq.km) and then 20 smaller private reserves, essentially doubling the area of the park! This significant addition of private reserves means that there are some huge areas under wildlife conservation, and a great number of private game lodges too.
