south africa tourism
South Africa is the leading tourism destination in the continent of Africa. Truly a world in one country…the southernmost country on the African continent has a coastline that stretches for 3000km from the border of Mozambique in the east, to Namibia in the south west.

South Africa has a superb system of National Parks, Game Reserves and Nature Reserves. Protection of the numerous species of wildlife is a priority, and one may see lion, elephant, white and black rhino, giraffe, many species of antelopes, and smaller predators in easily accessible reserves throughout the country.
