Beautiful Country
"South Africa is one of the most beautiful, hottest tourist destinations in the world. When you see its exquisite beaches, stunning countryside and rugged mountain backdrop, you can understand why."
Jasmine Harman, television travel presenter.

South Africans are known for being amongst the most upbeat, welcoming and humorous folk you can hope to encounter. The country’s past may be one of separation and struggle but their future is filled with unity and possibility. South Africans are extremely proud of their beautiful country, offering tourists from around the world stunning holiday experiences and world-class hospitality, and they were delighted to be able to display this to the world in 2010 as the host of the FIFA World Cup (the first African nation to do so).

South Africa is known as the Rainbow Nation, with 11 official languages, contrasting landscapes and abundant wildlife - this certainly takes some beating.

South Africa is a destination where you can experience it all; from the unspoilt beaches along the Wild Coast to the vibrant nightlife of Cape Town; the deserts of the Kgalagadi to the lush, green forests of Tsitsikamma. One moment you can be cage-diving with Great White sharks, the next you’re enjoying a traditional braai and a bottle of Pinotage along the Garden Route.

There are nine spectacular provinces to explore in South Africa. For more information on each of them, please use the links below.
