South Africa is a vast country with varying landscapes and an equally diverse population. The state recognizes eleven official languages and the culture is a mix of the native tribesmen who were the original settlers, the colonial invaders as well as the immigrants who moved there during South Africa’s colonial past.
Emerging from decades of economic and sporting isolation due to the Apartheid movement, the nation of South Africa now boasts of the strongest economy in Africa, owing primarily to its status as one of the world’s largest producers of gold, diamonds and wines. In major cities like Johannesburg and Cape Town, visitors have access to world-class amenities and infrastructure, while a trip to the interiors gives you an amazing experience of life in the bush, as well as a chance to get up close and personal with exotic wildlife including lions, tigers, elephants, zebras, giraffes and several species of birds, while the 3,000 kilometer long coast line treats visitors to picturesque beaches, and perfect avenues for sunbathing and other watersports, including deep sea diving and whale watching.
