You will be enchanted by giant, orange full moons; crystal-clear mountain streams; smiling hosts for whom nothing is ever too much trouble; the roar of a lion at midnight outside your safari camp; entertaining evenings out at the theatre, cinema or nightclub; learning to say ‘hello’ in 11 different languages; walking barefoot on endless stretches of pristine beach sand and finding yourself in the midst of an expanse that stretches as far as your binoculars can see.
South Africa has well developed infrastructure and modern amenities. Cities like Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, Knysna, and many other cities in South Africa have the kinds of structures, services, entertainment, restaurants, and offerings you would expect to find in American or European cities.
Despite being the most modern African country, South Africa still offers many of the attractions that draw people to Africa. It is infused with vibrant culture and has the wild African bush at its back door. This is important to understanding why South Africa is such a special place. It has a rare mix of modern development, African culture, outdoor attractions, and untamed wildlife that you will find nowhere else in the world.
