The Wild Side
If the wild side of South Africa made a big impression on you, this is a great magnet to get. This souvenir from South Africa shows that animals we generally think of as tropical do eek out a living in big old Africa. There is a certain human quality with the parrot exhibits by facing the viewer in such an endearing way. This really compliments the welcoming nature of this souvenir. It serves as a great reminder that South Africa is indeed a place that is just waiting to be explored.
A Matter of Extreme Biodiversity
The blue parrot is just one example of the rich and diversified fauna in South Africa. In fact, the country climbs to the sixth´s world position in terms of biodiversity. It is matter of traveling all over this extensive country. Thus, the traveler can immerse in the desert in the North. When heading South, he or she will run into a semiarid terrain.
If traveling East, the traveler will find a different landscape, mainly a kind of desert woodland and savanna, where he or she will admire an extremely differentiated wildlife, one of the most diverse on Earth. When reaching the South, there are shrubs with unique appearances such as Euphorbia Aloe and Cape Honeysuckle that will certainly amaze the viewer. The West of the country also houses shrubs such as Restionaceae and Proteaceae, which can´t be found in any other place on Earth. If the traveler feels like wandering in a forest, South Africa won´t let you down and should head to Knysna where there is small forested area. This is a great travel souvenir to take to a friend that loves knowing about the amazing animal diversity prevalent on the world.
