South Africa : the first looking

South Africa is a country rich in culture, and has been referred to as the 'rainbow nation', a title which illuminates the country's cultural diversity. The population of South Africa is one of the most complex and diverse in the world with 11 official languages. Of the estimated 45 million South Africans, nearly 31 million are Black, 5 million White, 3 million Coloured and one million Indian. The population density of South Africa is 32.9 people per square kilometre.

with regards to safaris and things to do we have it all! It obviously depends on where you are going to stay in south africa as to what you want to do and what to see but you definintely need to go on safari somewhere in the country. Our country is so large and so beautiful. You will definintely need a car to get around as things are so far apart. Our public transporation system is limited compared to the states and europe. It is imperative that you hire a car when here for the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

Most people speak two or three at least.


We have hundreds of safaris parks in South Africa. But one of the largest and most popular is Kruger National Park
which stretches over 7332 square miles or nearly 19 000 square kilometers.

Thank you for your comment on my site, Back Chat. I can see no point in publishing it as it has nothing to do with any of the subject matter.
