South Africa [03:38]
South Africa is a lion, a grape, a flower, a painting and a smile. South Africa stands out among African nations for its sheer diversity. This land of perpetual sunshine offers urbane cities and old-world vineyards, spectacular vistas and thrilling big game drives. It is well endowed with natural attributes such as the fynbos, a botanically rich region known as the "Cape Floral Kingdom" noted for dramatic flowers such as the king protea. Two mighty oceans collide near the Cape of Good Hope, and great graceful sweeps of coastline stand uncrowded and uncluttered. Private game reserves hark back to the era when the land was owned by elephant, leopard, impala and zebra. Malaria-free reserves are ideal for families with young children. Indeed, many of the extraordinary boutique hotels, lodges and inns are genuinely family friendly with specialized programs and activities catering to each family's interests. South Africa is also noted for its ancient rock art and cave paintings created by the original San people and dating back millennia. Ukhahlamba-Drakensberg Park, for example, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is one of just 23 sites worldwide granted this status on the basis of both natural beauty and cultural significance. It has 500 known sites of San rock art. South Africa appeals to the connoisseur who delights in exceptional cuisine, historic architecture, world renowned wines, luxurious railway journeys and outstanding accommodations.

The Hippos of Saint Lucia (South Africa) [00:40]
(EN) St Lucia is a settlement in Umkhanyakude District Municipality in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa. The hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius), or hippo, from the ancient Greek for "river horse" (ἱπποπόταμος), is a large, mostly herbivorous mammal in sub-Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae (the other is the pygmy hippopotamus). After the elephant and rhinoceros, the hippopotamus is the third largest type of land mammal and the heaviest extant artiodactyl. Despite their physical resemblance to pigs and other terrestrial even-toed ungulates, their closest living relatives are cetaceans (whales, porpoises, etc.) from which they diverged about 55 million years ago. The common ancestor of whales and hippos split from other even-toed ungulates around 60 million years ago. The earliest known hippopotamus fossils, belonging to the genus Kenyapotamus in Africa, date to around 16 million years ago. The hippopotamus is semi-aquatic, inhabiting rivers, lakes and mangrove swamps, where territorial bulls preside over a stretch of river and groups of 5 to 30 females and young. During the day, they remain cool by staying in the water or mud; reproduction and childbirth both occur in water. They emerge at dusk to graze on grass. While hippopotamuses rest near each other in the water, grazing is a solitary activity and hippos are not territorial on land. Hippos are recognizable by their barrel-shaped torso, enormous mouth and teeth ...

The Big Five At Sabi Sabi!! [01:01]
We were at Sabi Sabi earlier this year and our first trip out we saw the Kruger Male and the Southern Pride, then buffalo, then a rhino, then an elephant. We finished up with Sandriver the one eyed leopard that has defied the odds by not only surviving but thriving in this predator filled area of South Africa! Not bad for our first few hours in the bush!
