General Info

Weather: Republic of South Africa ( RSA ) is the southernmost country of the African continent and its climate conditions are affected by many factors as Ocean currents, altitude, a quasi-permanent high pressure cell in the North ( Saharian anticyclone ) and of course the fact that most of the country lies in the tropics. These factors contribute to create numerous micro-climate area with variations from place to place. 
During the whole winter there is no rainfall with low humidity. In summer we have rains during afternoon  storms and high umidity associated with high temperatures on indian ocean coast while in mainland as in Kalahari Desert we have very high temperature because of dry continental tropical air masses.

This vast country is undoubtedly one of the most culturally and geographically diverse places on earth. Fondly known by locals as the 'Rainbow Nation', South Africa has 11 official languages and its multicultural inhabitants are influenced by a fascinating mix of cultures. Discover the gourmet restaurants, impressive art scene, vibrant nightlife and beautiful beaches of Cape Town; enjoy a local braai (barbecue) in the Soweto township; browse the bustling Indian markets in Durban; or sample some of the world’s finest wines at the myriad wine estates dotting the Cape Winelands. Some historical attractions to explore include the Zululand battlefields of KwaZulu-Natal, the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg and Robben Island, just off the coast of Cape Town. Above all else, its remarkably untamed wilderness with its astonishing range of wildlife roaming freely across massive unfenced game reserves such as the world-famous Kruger National Park. With all of this variety on offer, it is little wonder that South Africa has fast become Africa’s most popular tourist destination.
