Scenic Southern Africa – Sean Fraser, Roger and Pat de la Harpe
The subcontinent remains one of Africa’s great drawcards – it is home to vast numbers of endemic wildlife, the setting of some of the continent’s most inspiring vistas and proud host to some of Africa’s greatest game reserves and national parks. And herein lies southern Africa’s most promising contribution. Together, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique have made the most of their spectacular scenery, the indigenous wildlife and the warm hospitality of their peoples. The enormous range of their wild spaces and natural habitats, from coastal wetlands and bushveld landscape to mountains and even desert sands, means that there is an equally varied flora and fauna.
Birds abound in every form, their mammals include the largest, the smallest and certainly in the case of the Big Five, for example, the most impressive. Yet it is the people of southern Africa – in every face, on every city street and in every dusty village – who are the true reflection of Africa.
