“I believe that South Africa is the most beautiful place on earth. Admittedly, I am biased, but when you combine the natural beauty of sunny South Africa with the friendliness and cultural diversity of our people, and the fact that the region is a haven for Africa’s most splendid wildlife, then I think even the most scrupulous critic would agree that we have been blessed with a truly wonderful land.
I would like to extend a personal invitation to you to come and see for yourself, the splendour of South Africa. I know that my people will be delighted to welcome you and I think you will be enchanted by their warmth and hospitality. I am equally sure that you will enjoy our culture, our cuisine and the warmth of our people.” - NELSON MANDELA
WELCOME TO SOUTH AFRICA
Each of South Africa’s nine provinces offers important attractions whether you be a casual visitor, shutter bug, history buff, bird watcher, museum-goer, beach-comber, sports fan, wildlife seeker or casino crawler, South Africa has to be one of the premier tourist destinations in the world, especially in the wake of the sharp depreciation of the rand. Visitors spending hard currency, especially the US Dollar and the British Pound, find first-class restaurants and hotels downright affordable. In short, almost any pursuit of interest to the tourist is available and at reasonable prices.
