South Africa is a vast country covering the southern tip of Africa. It comprises several climate zones, from the tropical to the arid, and has a huge variety of flora and fauna. Several national parks safeguard Africa’s big game, and the ocean is home to remarkable marine species including whales and dolphins. The cultural diversity of the cities has created fantastic culinary, musical and architectural fusions. Meanwhile, tribal life remains relatively unchanged in the more remote areas. From Cape Town to Johannesburg, from the breathtaking Drakensberg mountains to the sun-soaked coastline, South Africa has something for everyone.
