South Africa is situated at the extreme southern tip of the African continent. It is one of the most geographically varied countries on the continent, comprising territory that ranges from the rolling, fertile plains of the Highveld; to the wide open savannah of Mpumalanga; to the Kalahari Desert; and the peaks of the Drakensberg mountains. At the foothills of one of the seven natural wonders of the world, Table Mountain, you will find the Mother City and capital of the Western Cape Province – Cape Town. Her scenic grandeur and unparalleled diversity (from picturesque fishing villages to the impressive Winelands) are enchanting. Her spectacular coastline takes explorers along the famous Garden Route, as well as off the beaten track to the arid Klein Karoo.
