Among the guided walks and drives you'll enjoy a drive through Hluhluwe and Umfolosi wildlife park and a history walk to freedom in Cape Town. The book is rounded out with a generous Travelwise section, containing practical information on how to travel to and around South Africa, as well as author-picked hotels and restaurants, shopping, and entertainment and activities.
