South Africa Show services:
South Africa is known as the Rainbow Nation, due to its wide variety of people, cultures and languages.

The climate is mild with Gauteng's highveld having of the best weather in the world. A large part of the country (the Karoo) is a vast, arid landscape with towns few and far between. The Western Cape prides itself in what could be regarded as the most beautiful, mountainous scenery in the world. KwaZulu Natal has rolling hills, lush undergrowth and miles of pristine beaches. The Eastern Cape has spectacular forests and untouched nature.

South Africa is steeped in a turbulent and sometimes violent history. 1994 saw the end of a political era, ushering in a time of peaceful co-existence of the Country's people.
