About South Africa
Accommodations range from campsites, farmhouses, trailers, youth hostels and guesthouses to five-star resort properties and lodges. Prices are relatively low, and clean accommodations are easily found. Private game reserves along the border of Kruger National Park boast some of the poshest safari digs in all of Africa. Notable among them are facilities at Mala Mala, Sabi Sabi and Londolozi (all of which are part of the greater Sabi Sand Game Reserve). The deluxe Mount Nelson Hotel—called Nellie by locals—and Cape Grace Hotel are both Cape Town favorites, while the Westcliff and Saxon in Johannesburg are considered the country's top luxury hotels.
