Over the last ten years South Africa has been one of the fastest-growing tourist destinations in the world. The climate, the accessibility, the location between East and West, the rich cultural heritage, and the favourable exchange rate all combine to make South Africa a popular destination for more and more international visitors.
One of the most geographically varied countries in Africa, South African has within its borders scenic attractions from the dramatic, arid landscapes of the northwest to the forest-fringed coastline of the Garden Route; from the flat, dry Karoo interior to the craggy Drakensberg Mountains in the east; from the manicured vineyards of the Cape, to the flower fields of Namaqualand and the bushveld of the Kruger National Park.
Blue skies, big game safaris, wilderness areas, and the promise of a sun-drenched beach holiday are what draw most visitors to South Africa. But the cultural diversity and the warmth and spirit of the people make it an even more inspiring place to explore.
