The wild life alone makes South Africa one of the most exquisite places to see in the world. There are numerous conservation areas across South Africa, and it is the home of the very first wildlife site created over a century ago. Amazingly, there are more than 850 different species living in South Africa. As quoted on SouthAfricaInfo.com, “from small, meat eater to ant eater, primate to reptile our animals (and birds) are wild, varied and abundant”. This sums up the great diversity of animals that South Africa has to offer.
The arts and culture is phenomenal in South Africa. They host many different exhibitions and events throughout all the year. This year from July 2nd – 12th there will be a National Arts Festival, organised by a Harare-based dance company. The festival is set to bring audiences a flavour of what South Africa has to offer through contemporary dance. In 2015, South Africa also won the prestigious Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award. This is the world’s richest award given for children’s books. So not only do they hold fabulous events, they win awards too!
If you are lucky enough to visit, you will probably come across the word “Ubuntu” which is used to describe the local people. In simple terms, this means ‘humanity towards others’. South African people strongly believe that a universal bond exists amongst everyone that connects all humanity. The culture and strong welcoming traits of South African people not only makes their home a great place to be, but also makes them great candidates for those looking for friendship, love or more!
