The Safari experience in South Africa is stunning and gives a different angle to the wild life in the African country. Though South Africa doesn’t have beautiful creation, Safari in the mainland is considered as the big selling point.
Huge Buffaloes, Leopards, Elephants, Lions and Rhinos could be seen in the Safari and the rare species which is not visible in the Indian sub-continent. The Ebola epidemic contained the tourist inflow into the countries.
The several policy initiatives would be introduced to encourage Indian travelers to South Africa. Quick visa processing methods would be introduced for Indians.
