Entry Summary:
Everyone dreams of visiting Africa and more particularly South Africa. It is a country that is as well known for its extraordinarily abundant biodiversity as its political liberation. It is the ultimate nature lover’s paradise boasting not only the BIG 5 – Lions, Buffalos, Leopards, Rhino’s and Elephants but countless birds, amphibian creatures, fish and insects, grasslands, forests, wide open plains, arid regions and so much more. This biodiversity is under threat constantly, as human beings take up habitat and use up resources. The delicate balance of this extraordinary biodiversity sits on a knifes edge and could very easily be thrown into chaos if just one piece of the chain is removed.
