South Africa Holidays give you a delightful experience in the southernmost African country. For decades we have been hearing about this nation: about racial conflict, gold extraction, beautiful destinations, and in sports headlines. It is time to explore the destination with this wonderful opportunity - South Africa Holidays.
South Africa is located on the southern tip of the African continent with its three sides (north, east and west) sharing borders with Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. The fourth side (the south) is marked by a coastline, extending southeast to meet the Indian Ocean and southwest to meet the Atlantic Ocean. Within this country are located two independent enclaves- Swaziland and Kingdom of Lesotho.
South Africa Holidays features close encounters with the distinct culture and diversity that are conspicuously observed in this African state. There is evidential proof that the place was inhabited by aborigines, thousands of years ago. Today, the place is populated by residents with marked differences in culture and language that bear impressions of African aborigines, Asian and European settlements.
