The Republic of South Africa is a country located at the southern tip of Africa. To the north of the country lie the neighbouring territories of Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe; to the east are Mozambique and Swaziland; while Lesotho is an enclave surrounded by South African territory. From empty wilderness and incredible landscapes to exhilarating nightlife and adventure activities, from lazy days on unspoiled beaches to big 5 safaris, it's no wonder that South Africa is called 'the world in one nation'. Here comes the fantastic cities of Cape Town and Johannesburg. The most iconic natural attractions are the Table Mountain in Cape Town and the Drakensberg mountains in KwaZulu Natal. Among its many valuable heritage sites, South Africa has five that are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites – Robben Island, St Lucia Wetland Park, the Cradle of Humankind, uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park and the Vredefort Dome.
