Shortcut: South Africa Has It All!

South Africa is a favorite place for tourists from all over the world. It has all kinds of  landscapes, from sandy beaches to snowy mountains. How about a "Big 5 Game" safari in a national park? You may see a lion, leopard, rhino, elephant or Cape buffalo. There are so many different things to do, the hard part is choosing!

A "cultural safari" in a local neighborhood is also possible. Why not stay in a local person's Bed & Breakfast? You can even talk to a traditional healer! There are so many different ethnic groups in South Africa: black, white, Asian, Afrikaner, Europeans... Go on a cultural safari and see why South Africa is called the Rainbow Nation.

Another kind of tourism is a "nature safari". Does hiking, biking or caving in Mpumalanga Province sound like fun? Landmarks like Table Mountain are popular. Most people want to visit historical Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was in prison. Or how about a tour showing how South Africa was in the Stone Age?

Some visitors choose to stay longer and be tourist volunteers. Working with child care, health care or wildlife are all possibilities. No matter what kind of holiday you choose, South Africa has it all!
