South Africa
Why should a discerning traveller visit South Africa? Is it our excellent climate, our dazzling sunshine, our wild life and our breathtaking scenery?

South Africa has all of this, but there is so much more – a rich and diverse selection of experiences combining exciting Africa with facilities and entertainment that meet the highest international standards. The Republic of South Africa is at the tip of the African continent and is surrounded by both the Atlantic and the Indian Oceans. The country has a generally temperate climate due in part to this fact as well as its location in the climatically milder Southern Hemisphere and due to its average elevation, which increases steadily towards the North (towards the Equator) and further inland. Due to this varied topography and oceanic influence, a great variety of climatic zones exist.

It is the Provincial Capital of the Western Cape, as well as the legislative capital of South Africa, where the national Parliament is located.

Regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful cities because of its geography, Cape Town is one of the most popular tourist destinations. Cape Town has a population of 3.5 million people.
