SOUTH AFRICA

South Africa, aptly described as the "Rainbow Nation" by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, is a culturally diverse captivating country known for its artistic and linguistic heritage. This gorgeous country with its large number of unusual landscapes is the land of the people of the heavens- the Zulus, and the birthplace of Nelson Mandela and Hector Pieterson. A storehouse of the oldest and finest rock paintings in the world, it boasts 8 UNESCO World Heritage Sites of which four are classified as cultural, three as natural and one as a mixed cultural and natural site. Its magnificent views, striking wildlife and astounding biodiversity make it a ‘world in one country’.

South Africa is the only country in the world with a coastline bordering both the Atlantic and the Indian Oceans. Rocky areas and beautiful sandy beaches on the coastline impart a spectacular element to the landscape. The grasslands on the great plateau host an incredible wildlife – the ‘big five’, a wide variety of species of birds, including ostriches and grouse as well as a number of different reptiles. The Limpopo and Orange, the chief rivers crossing the country from west to east, support a fascinating eco-system that includes incredible birdlife and plenty of hippos and crocodiles. Whales can be found off the West coast near Cape Town. 70% of the 9600 plant species found in South Africa are unique and grow nowhere else in the world. One of the most famous of these unique species is the national flower, the Giant Protea. A part of the Kalahari Desert included in the northwest and the Namib Desert in the east burst into life with the spring rains in September and October.

A long history and unique diversity of people has gifted South Africa a vibrant and dynamic culture that includes a new heritage of music, art and dance. It was in the mines of South Africa that 'Gumboot dancing' was born. Artists draw inspiration from the masks, statues and figurines of tribal culture. The traditions of the Zulu tribe have survived to modern days and are known for beautiful and colourful beadwork where every pattern and colour has a different meaning and every work tell a story! The traditional music and dance inspired by wedding ceremonies, battles, rituals and everyday life is unique in its vitality and energy. With people coming together to celebrate anything from the arts and live music, to food, whales, olives, and wine, the South African calendar is filled with countless festivals such as the Kaapse Klopse, Calitzdorp Port and Wine Festival, Ficksburg Cherry Festival, the National Arts Festival, the Hermanus Whale Festival, the Oppikoppi Bushveld Festival and many more.

South African cuisine combines influences from all over the world and offers a myriad of indigenous delicacies such as biltong (dried, salted meat), bobotie (a version of Shepherd's pie) and boerewors (grilled hand-made farm sausages).
