South Africa's cultural diversity is dizzy. It manifests itself in her art, culture, and cuisine. It is a country where it is impossible to get bored, and in which regardless of interests or skin color everyone will find something for themselves.
The Republic of South Africa is at the southern tip of the African continent and is the furthest country in Africa. About 50 million inhabitants live here permanently, and the capital is Pretoria. Cape Town is the second-largest city in South Africa. Pretoria is the seat of government, but now the seat of parliament in Cape Town. Other large urban centers in South Africa are Johannesburg, Durban, Kimberley, Port Elisabeth, and Polokwane.
The country borders on Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe. Interestingly, in South Africa, there is a separate Lesotho enclave. South Africa has three national symbols and it is a Springbok antelope, a blue crane, and a Protea tree. In South Africa, in the south of the country, there is the famous Cape of Good Hope.
The culture of South Africa is a mixture of different customs and traditions brought to it by the inhabitants of Flanders, England, and Malaysia. To this must be added various ethnic groups living in the territory of this country, and you will get a unique cultural mix. The best reflection of this diversity is music and dance, where it's the easiest to see the country's ethnic wealth, as exemplified by the legendary band Ladysmith Black Mambazo, which combined Zulus rhythms with popular music, gaining international recognition.
Tourism occupies a very important place among the various branches of the South African economy. Tourists come to this country in search of the real exoticism they receive in numerous national parks. Wild nature, beautiful landscapes, and the opportunity to admire the wild African animals up close are the main tourist advantages of this country. The most common travelers decide to participate in safari in the Kruger National Park.
For a walk-in Cape Town, you must go along the V&A Waterfront, where we will see modern shopping malls bordering the fish market, old houses from the time of the Dutch Company, and the Chavonnes Battery Museum.
