South Africa is an extremely various country in terms of landscapes, wildlife and people, very different for some reasons to the rest of the continent. Let its rich nature from the Kruger savannah to the colourful Garden Route, and the spectacular animals as African penguins, elephants, lions and gepard conquer you. Learn about the Apartheid that ended in 1994 and the contribution of Nelson Mandela to unite South Africans, with the idea of a country where black and white can cohabit without any problem. 

I lived 5 months in South Africa doing an internship in Tourism Management near Cape Town. I explored every corner around this area letting Mama Africa guiding me through this amazing country!
