South Africa


 
South Africa is a treasure chest of unforgettable scenery, from lofty mountains to sun-baked deserts and dramatic coastlines washed by the Atlantic and Indian oceans.
 

 
South Africa is a popular tourist destination, with around 10 mill international visitors a year, out of which about 3 mill are from outside the African Continent, South Africa has become one of the world's fastest growing leisure travel destination. Many visitors come to South Africa to experience for themselves the miracle of the peaceful overthrow of apartheid. Others are attracted by the endless golden beaches, the wildlife, and activities such as diving and snorkeling, or bird-watching. Whatever their reasons, visitors will find South Africa positively inviting, with world-class infrastructure, transport and accommodation, and has a reputation for delivering value for money.

Game viewing in South Africa equals the best in Africa, and where else can you find both penguins and elephants?Overshadowed by dramatic Table Mountain and surrounded by the Atlantic, Cape Town is one of the world's most picturesque cities. You can sample fine wine under the grapes in the tranquil winelandswhile the pretty Garden Route offers country towns, lagoons and forests to explore.
 
 
The Wild Coast boasts isolated beaches, rocky coastline and traditional rural villages, and the resorts along the KwaZulu-Natal coast offer lots of family seaside fun.

Inland are the intriguing and moving battlefield sites that lay testament to the Anglo-Boer war. Here too rise the
Drakensberg Mountains where vultures ride on the thermals over deeply green valleys and jagged peaks. To the east is the Kruger National Park where the bush harbors the "Big Five" animals to see (the lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino) as well as many other fascinating animals and birds. South Africa also has a vivid history. Apartheid was broken down in 1990 by President FW De Klerk, and jailed ANC leader Nelson Mandela was released after 27 years of imprisonment. In the first democratic elections to be held in South Africa, Mandela became president in 1994. The story is told in the excellent museums in Johannesburg, by far the most vibrant of the country's cities with a rich cultural heritage.
