South Africa in a NutShell

South Africa is diverse country at the tip Africa- the world’s second largest and most populous continent. Bordered by Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Swaziland, and with a population of around 48 million, South Africa is truly part of the African continent, and eleven official languages are recognised in our Constitution.

The country has emerged from a turbulent past, and since the first democratic elections in 1994, unity is sought through diversity in a place where all people are now equal.
