South Africa

South Africa is an incredible destination in so many ways and possibly one of the most diverse destinations in the world. And it is that incredible diversity that makes South Africa’s key attractions – from the deserts of the Kgalagadi to the lush green forests of Tsitsikamma to the unspoilt beaches of the Wild Coast to the vibrant nightlife of Cape Town, to impressive community initiatives that you could be part of – South Africa really does have it all.

South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is a country located at the southern tip of Africa. It is divided into nine provinces, with 2,798 kilometres (1,739 mi) of coastline on the Atlantic and Indian Ocean. To the north of the country lie the neighbouring territories of Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe; to the east are Mozambique and Swaziland; while Lesotho is an enclave surrounded by South African territory.
South Africa is multi-ethnic and has diverse cultures and languages. Eleven official languages are recognised in the constitution. Two of these languages are of European origin: South African English and Afrikaans, a language which originated mainly from Dutch that is spoken by the majority of white and Coloured South Africans. Though English is commonly used in public and commercial life, it is only the fifth most-spoken home language.

There are nine provinces in South Africa for you to explore – nine incredible diverse parts of the country that will open up your sense of possibility in ways you never thought possible. South Africa is home to a superb infrastructure – excellent roads, a great variety of accommodation options and world-class service which gives great opportunity to come and travel self drive or in a group.
