An irregular matrix of terrain stretches far beyond the horizon. From the wild parched deserts and plains, through natural habitats, to manicured parks and gardens. Treacherous mountains, dense bush and lush green forests all offer varying experiences while rivers, lagoons, cliffs, coves, sandy bays and beaches perpetually beckon.
Long hot summers and mild winters make South Africa an 'all purpose all season' destination waiting to receive you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Populated by an eclectic mix of races, each with diverse and fascinating cultures, South Africa embraces all peoples, hence the expression Rainbow Nation.
Our history too, is a rich tapestry detailing the lives of Africa's inhabitants, interweaving explorers, settlers, invaders and the earliest indigenous peoples with tribal wars, colonialism and apartheid.
Our magnificent land abundantly yields the lion's share of the world's precious stones, sun ripened fruits and of course, superb wines from the finest grapes ever plucked from the vine.
And the abundant and astounding variety of marine life and wildlife plays a key role in positioning South Africa as a destination of choice.
