An introduction to South Africa
Roughly the size of Spain and France combined, or Texas, South Africa is situated at the very southern tip of Africa.
Gauteng is an urban playground – think large shopping malls, bars, hotels, casinos and a vibrant cultural and entertainment scene. It is South Africa’s economic powerhouse.
More about South Africa
South Africa is known for its friendliness, hospitality and affordability. The fact that many travellers return for subsequent visits is proof of this.
The North West province features premier wildlife destinations; parts of two UNESCO World Heritage Sites; and the Sun City gaming and entertainment resort.
South Africa’s third-smallest province, KwaZulu-Natal, is also one of its most exciting – it offers scenic and cultural attractions, beaches and world-famous game reserves.
Selling South Africa
It’s quite easy to sell South Africa as a holiday destination, and it makes good business sense to do so.
The Western Cape is home to Table Mountain, the vast Cape Winelands and two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Robben Island and the Cape Floral Region.
Although getting to South Africa usually involves a long flight, it’s well worth it when visitors get here!
South Africa’s ‘wild’ province, the Eastern Cape features expanses of untouched beach, bush and forest, spectacular scenery and abundant wildlife.
This beautiful province is probably best known as the home (along with part of Limpopo province) of the Kruger National Park.
The Northern Cape is a place of vast, arid plains, spectacular scenery and big sky.
Limpopo has taken its rightful place as a sought-after tourist destination with big game, brilliant birding and untamed bush landscapes.
Free State province is in the heart of South Africa, and its appeal lies in its scenic beauty and natural attractions.
