South Africa

South Africa is one of the most diverse, spectacular and beautiful countries in the world. Known as the ‘Rainbow Nation’ for its remarkable cultural diversity. The people never fail to captivate those who travel to South Africa, there is undoubtedly an abundance of energy and sense
of progress about the place. The infrastructure is excellent, the natural scenery is stunning, the climate is kind and there are few better places to see Africa's wildlife. Most travelers to South Africa would agree you will have the experience of a lifetime!

Did you know that Table Mountain has more plant species than the British Isles? Or that the Drakensberg has Africa's richest concentration of rock art? SA is home to seven Unesco World Heritage sites, places of "outstanding value to humanity"

South Africa has 11 official languages, and scores of unofficial ones besides. English is the most commonly spoken language in official and commercial public life - but only the fifth most spoken home language.

Capetown as a city has one of the world’s most amazing settings. In this beautiful city even transient visitors can't help be in awe of its grandeur: its striking Table Mountain backdrop, its glorious beaches and enchanting vineyards, its rugged landscapes, its strange and wonderful plants and animals.
