South Africa is a country as geographically and culturally diverse as its 11 national languages, which represent a societal melting pot of indigenous Africans, English, Indian immigrants and Afrikaners of Dutch and German descent. Situated at the southernmost tip of the continent, South Africa borders the Atlantic and Indian oceans with its vast plains and desert mountains stretching inland. Given the country's immense scope of urban centers and exotic natural settings along with its hosting of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, it's no wonder many tourists choose to visit South Africa.
Cape Town serves as South Africa's emblematic city; a cosmopolitan collection of sprawling markets, chic commercial centers, colonial enclaves and picturesque surroundings. Stunning Table Mountain looms over Cape Town, and visitors can take a cable car to the top for panoramic views of the Cape of Good Hope and the Atlantic Ocean. Just offshore lies Robben Island, the old jail where Nelson Mandela and other political prisoners were held during apartheid. Tourists flock to this magnetic site for a glimpse of history.
Johannesburg sits in the northern reaches of the country, functioning as the nation's financial and commercial hub. Prominent attractions include the Apartheid Museum and the African Craft Market. Other points of interest such as the township of Soweto and the Cradle of Humankind with its paleontology and fossil exhibits also draw tourists to the region
