This page provides information on some of the South African National Parks that we have visited and that should be considered as destinations when visiting South Africa. Most of this material also applies to Parks in Botswana and Namibia. We have not attempted to visit all parks and reserves in these countries – that would be nearly impossible given the large number of parks and other nature reserves. Our interests have been in botanical subjects, animals of many kinds, from larger mammals to smaller reptiles and especially birds – which tend to be more obvious and easier to spot. Many books are available that summarize the parks and reserves and a tremendous amount of internet material as well, so one wonders what is the point in yet another website with this material. Our audience is the naturalist, often with special interests in plants and animals.
