Shark Week shines spotlight on South Africa

Shark Week on the Discovery Channel is almost over but the fascination with sharks will continue on.  Some sharks are mysterious and dangerous but also graceful and magnificent creatures.

One of the intriguing things that occurred to me while watching is that some sharks are lucky because they get to live in some of the most amazing places in the world. 

One of the top destinations that The Discovery Channel takes us to see the most amazing sharks is South Africa.  This exotic locale is full of so much to do, visiting the beaches is not the only option.

By simply searching for South Africa at, you come up with so many options of places to stay that it will be difficult to make a decision.  Game Reserves,  National Parks, safari, spa, beaches and luxury all await when visiting South Africa.
