Product Description


Travellers are returning to a remarkable land that has been off the trail for way too long. The South African infrastructure is constantly improving, the climate is kind and there are few better places to see Africa's wildlife. With its post-apartheid identity still in the process of definition, there is undoubtedly an abundance of energy and sense of progress about the place. Today, South Africa is a culturally diverse country, one nation made up of many peoples. With 11 different official languages, a multiplicity of traditions and skin tones ranging from ebony to sunburnt pink, its citizens are, as Archbishop Desmond Tutu once put it, the rainbow nation of Africa. This country is more than a cultural melting pot; it's a big warm potjie of culture, full of different ingredients and yummy surprises, and developing its rich flavour over centuries. It's an exhilarating, spectacular and complex land. South Africa is a whole world in just one nation.
