South Africa is home to a cultural tapestry like no other, with indigenous tribes such as the Xhosa and Zulu side-by-side Afrikanas and people of other European descent, as well as many Indian and Jewish communities. This diverse cultural backdrop has resulted in unique traditions, customs and cuisines, and makes South Africa an extraordinary country to visit. Blessed with the magnificent Stellenbosch wine region, the epic Kruger National Park, Table Mountain and surrounds, it’s now surprise that South Africa is fast-becoming a leading destination for travellers wanting to experience the diversity of Africa.
