South Africa's rich natural history and many South African's love of the outdoors began as far back as the 18th Century - originally born out of necessity, when the first settlers embarked with ox wagons and tents to expand their territories to the North and East.  This nomadic lifestyle and enjoyment of the outdoors has been instilled in many a South African.
