South Africa: a varied and vibrant destination

There are so many reasons to visit South Africa, not least for the amazing scenery and the opportunity to travel into the game reserves to see some fascinating animals in their natural habitat. More and more people are heading to South Africa in search of adventure, from mountain walking to shark cave diving and more. Whether you are of an adventurous nature or you just want the opportunity to relax, the choice of holiday in this exquisite country will astound you.

The draw of this country is such that people will return year on year, so it's not surprising that there is a buoyant timeshare market out there. From top of the range new resorts to timeshare resales, people are keen to buy into a piece of this country and have the option to keep coming back. Furthermore, the number of resorts that are affiliating themselves with some of the holiday exchange companies is on the increase, allowing for members to exercise even greater choice in their holiday decisions.

So what is it about this country that keeps the timeshare resales market so popular? Well, the weather obviously has more than a little to do with that. A temperate climate that gives long, sunny days means that there is rarely a day when activities are spoilt due to the weather, although there does tend to be some summer rainfall in most of the provinces. People who like to base their activities around the water will not be disappointed. The waters of the South Coast are a spectacular setting for diving and the country offers some of the best land-based whale watching in the world. Another really popular pastime is to bungee jump from the Bloukrans Bridge, the world's highest commercial bridge bungee and not for the faint-hearted.

But it is the chance to see the animals in the game reserves that is the real crowd-puller. The Kruger National Park is a world famous reserve, with areas of great natural beauty in which unique forests, traces of early humankind and ample opportunities for some fantastic birdwatching experiences can all be found. The 'Big Five', that is, lion, elephant, leopard, rhino and buffalo, are present here and it is every safari-goer's dream to catch a glimpse of these remarkable creatures in their own habitat. But whatever the reason that you choose to visit South Africa and whether you are visiting as a one off or taking advantage of the timeshare resales market, one thing is certain: it will be a life-changing experience that you will never forget.
