GENERAL INFORMATION SOUTH AFRICA

Interesting information

Cape Town - Mother City

South Africa is one of the most beautiful places on our planet. It is a Rainbow Nation of cultures and 5 continents in one.

South Africa, a large, scenically splendid and humanly diverse country at the foot of the African continent, is home to over 46 million people from at least 20 ethnic groups. The country is as large as Germany, France and Italy put together.

The cold Benguela current on the Atlantic and the warm Mozambique-Agulhas currents on the east wash the country's 2,954 km coastline. The climate is determined by these two currents. South Africa's climate is moderate and its topography ranges from highveld grassland to semi-desert to subtropical swamps - home to some of the world's most diverse animal and plant kingdoms. South Africa is the only country in the world iwth an entire floral kingdom - the Cape Fynbos which is declared World Heritage!

Cape Town belongs to the most beautiful cities in the world, it is a world city with interesting history, excellent museums, lively markets, the beautiful restored Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and of course Table Mountain.

The Western Cape, KwaZulu Natal and Mpumalanga Provinces are the most visited provinces in the country. However there is a lot more to discover!!

The Western Cape is known for its magnificent beaches, beautiful gardens, the winelands, superior hotels and one of the most welcoming people you have ever met.

There is also a lot of information on this website about other regions such as the Drakensbergen, safari game reserves, national parks and Swaziland. We have even given attention to the neighbouring countries: Zambia, Namibia and Botswana.

"By any standard, the Cape Town region of South Africa is one of the most beautiful and compelling places to visit on the planet. Here, in addition to a city with fascinating historical sites, excellent museums, vibrant markets and a handsomely restored waterfront. I encountered mountain wilderness, rugged coastlines, sandy beaches, lush gardens, beautiful wine estates, superior hotels and some of the warmest, most welcoming people I've ever met."
