As many as 11 languages are spoken in South Africa, but most locals speak English. The country is famous as one of the biggest producers of platinum, gold and diamonds, and is also known to be one of the leaders in the African continent in terms of its natural beauty and economic power. The South Africa of today stands as a modern country with one foot in the future, and the other foot trying to erase the mistakes made in its long and turbulent past, where among others Nelson Mandela was a hero.
Every country is diverse, but beating South Africa at diversity is something that most cannot do. The country is home to all kinds of sights and attractions, all sorts of natural features and every imaginable experience. It makes the most of its position in the most beautiful continent through a range of iconic landscapes such as the sight of penguins in the Cape, the Table Mountain, hippos of the Limpopo River, the lions and crocodiles of the Kruger National Park, the various ecosystems of iSimangaliso Wetland Park and those exotic wildflowers of Namakwa.
Long Walk to Freedom
South Africa witnessed a miraculous transformation from being a racial mess to becoming one of the pioneering countries that redefined mankind, brotherhood and democracy. Today, the country proudly welcomes more than 9 million visitors each year and presents a country that is no longer defined by its racial divide. Today, all that matters are those beautiful sights, those remarkable feats of engineering and that rich enviable lifestyle, and their natural fauna and flora.
