Overview

South Africa is nicknamed the ‘Rainbow Nation’ because of the diversity of its people but it also offers a spectrum of spectacular landscapes and an array of wildlife in its natural habitat. South Africa has a fascinating history which has seen Dutch settlers and British rule, and the introduction of apartheid in 1948. Foreign relations were strained for years as many countries imposed economic sanctions against South Africa. Since the end of apartheid and the election of President Nelson Mandela in 1994, South Africa has opened its doors to the world. These days you can expect a top-notch tourism industry and a friendly welcome.
