The Big Five can easily be seen and a self drive safari is very possible. Safari on your own pace and own viewing preferences eg wildlife or birds. The climate is amazing and the food the best! Good roads but expensive toll roads. Diversity of people, cultures and scenery in one country.
Very friendly and diverse cultural vibe. Climate and plant-life also eerily similar to San Francisco-area so as soon as I arrived I felt like I was home.

If you are not from sub-saharan Africa, there's nothing like a South African safari for you and South Africa certainly has plenty of opportunity for you to experience these. There is no feeling that you need to keep an eye on your wallet at these game preserves. You'll enjoy the company of everyone you'll meet once at the preserve, and you'll have that once in a lifetime, dream experience. You'll be IN the African Bush.
Because the country is the cultivated Africa, it is not always easy to get really drowned into the bush atmosphere. Civilisation is often just a little to close

South Africa is hugely diverse and has nearly everything you want in an African destination, plus the urban attractions such as Cape Town. However, it is very popular, and the most spectacular game parks are overrun with tourists.

Although South Africa is not "Africa", it shows plenty athmosphere. I will always try to come back!

Nice and rather safe country (except of big cities), nice people.
South Africa seems to have all the African wildlife that most people would like to see on a safari.

We visited South Africa for just over two weeks, spending five days in Ulusaba, Kruger, five days at Hluhluwe-Umfolozi and four days down at Durban and one day up at Sodwana bay to do some diving. The weather while we were there was great overall, we only had bad weather one day when we went out diving off a boat from Durban, but that was more the sea breeze.
The people were so hospitable, everyone was asking if we were enjoying ourselves, etc. Both game parks provided good food and places to sleep, bathrooms, etc.
The beach, sea and reef were amazing at Sodwana bay, 7 mile as it is known was beautiful and there were loads of fish around generally.
What can I say, South Africa is my place of birth, you can't get any better anywhere else!
