South Africa Travel and Tourism Information
South Africa is the land of abundance when it
comes to natural beauty. It's the third most biologically diverse
country in the world, which means there's a national park to
suit every preference. From arid deserts to lush coastal forests,
majestic mountains and bushveld.
The animals in South Africa alone are good enough reason
to visit. One of the world's first wildlife conservation areas
was South Africa's Kruger Park, more than a century old. Today
it is just one part of a single broad conservation area that
spans private and public game parks, and even stretches across
national borders into neighbouring Mozambique and Zimbabwe.

The African Oryx Gazella also known as Gemsbuck or Gemsbok are African plains animals that travel in
groups of 10-45. The Gemsbuck's groups are set up with a dominant male and in most cases a few dominant
females. Male's horns are straight and pointed at the tip. Because of this they have been known to impale
attacking lions. Females horns can be the same but sometimes they are curved backward. There are two
different varieties of Gemsbok, the southern and the northern. The southern variety have longer horns
and the northern have black fringed ears. The Northern Gemsbok are rarely seen in South Africa.
