Home of diversity!
South Africa has 11 official languages, two of them being English and Afrikaans, the latter derived from Dutch. Despite the fact that English is a common language used for commerce and public life, it is only the fourth most widely spoken first language.
South Africa enjoys a mild climate, partly due to the fact that it is surrounded by water on three sides. The climatic zones range from the desert of southern Namibia to the lush subtropical climate along the border with Mozambique. Owing to its rich climate, South Africa is home to over 20,000 indigenous plants and wildlife, which account for roughly 10% of all known species of plants worldwide.
One cannot travel to South Africa without paying a visit to Kruger National Park, one of the largest wildlife parks in the entire world. It is home to lions, African elephants, Cape buffaloes, leopards and rhinoceroses, as well as over 114 species of reptiles including the black mamba and over 300 crocodiles. Its flora includes the red bush-willow, Acacia species, marula trees, mopane trees and distinctive vegetation, and a predominance of sickle bush and the silver cluster-leaf in Pretoriuskop rest camp in Kruger National Park.
South Africa has no legally defined capital. Its largest city is Johannesburg, which is also the home of South Africa’s Constitutional Court. The remaining three branches of government, i.e. legislative, administrative and judicial, are split between Cape Town, Pretoria and Bloemfontein, respectively.
One cannot mention South Africa without speaking of one of its most important offsprings and heroes: Nelson Mandela. He was the first-ever black President and anti-apartheid revolutionary. When in office, he played a key role in dismantling the legacy of apartheid. He fought against racism, poverty and inequality, promoting reconciliation and peace among all of South Africa’s inhabitants. His passing in late 2013 left a big hole in our hearts, not only locally but also internationally.
South Africa hosted the 2010 FIFA World Cup, making it the first-ever African country to do so. The tournament was also responsible for incredible changes in the landscape. For instance, the now famous Cape Town and Port Elizabeth’s waterfronts, which were completely made over and upgraded to better accommodate the many visitors who travelled the distance to support their home teams.
