South Africa Travel
"South Africa isn't just beautiful; it is achingly beautiful," wrote Bill Clinton. This "world within one country" boasts some of the world's most breathtaking landscapes, mountain ranges and canyons, wildlife reserves and National parks, tropical forests and deserts, endless beaches, rivers, streams and wetlands, and the iconic Table Mountain in Cape Town.
South Africa is larger than France and Spain combined; the country takes up four per cent of the entire African continent, spanning 1 219 912 square kilometres (and for more comparatives, five times greater than the United Kingdom, nearly twice the size of Texas). South Africa has 2 954 kilometres of coastline and a total land border of 4 750 kilometres.
It is situated at the most southern part of Africa, bordered by Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique in the North and flanked by the Atlantic Ocean in the West and the warm Indian Ocean in the East.
