There is something about eating alfresco that sharpens the appetite. And with new dining options becoming available in parks, there’s plenty to tantalise the taste buds. The winter 2014 issue of Wild showcases the feast awaiting nature lovers, from a bush braai in the heart of Mokala to stylish sushi at the tip of Cape Point. The magazine is out in time for the winter school holidays.
But new restaurants aren’t the only unexpected delights in South Africa’s parks and reserves. How would you like to stay in a tree house for grownups? Or explore birdlife in the Tankwa Karoo in the company of experts? What about a slackpacking trail along the Garden Route? You’ll enjoy hiking, paddling and homemade muffins to boot.
Wild magazine celebrates the wonder of nature with insightful stories and spectacular images. Ornithologist Warwick Tarboton explains why bird eggs come in all shades and sizes. Wild goes in search of Kruger’s great tuskers, tracks Verreaux’s eagles in the Cederberg and learns more about wild dogs.
In Namaqualand winter showers bring spring flowers, but pretty flower pictures are just half the story. The real drama plays out in the undergrowth as thousands of creatures take advantage of the food extravaganza.
Wild magazine is published for the Wild Card Programme by Tip Africa Publishing and is sent to members four times a year. Limited copies are on sale through selected Sparstores.
