South Africa


Welcome to Travel Guide 2 South Africa, the site about travel, tourism and vacations in South Africa.

The Republic of South Africa (Afrikaans: Republiek van Suid-Afrika) is a country located at the extreme southern tip of the African continent. The country has land borders with Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Zimbabwe and Lesotho, the last of which is located within an enclave surrounded by South African territory. South Africa has a long coastline on the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, that stretches across three sides (West, South and East) of the country.

Map of South Africa As of 2005, South Africa had an estimated population of 47,432,000. This includes people of a wide range of racial and cultural groups, including Black African, White, Coloured, Indian and Asian. Because of this diversity the country is now sometimes called the "Rainbow Nation", a term originally coined by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, but later adopted by President Nelson Mandela.

The country has three different capitals:
  1. The Executive Capital - Pretoria

  2. The Judicical Capital - Bloemfontein

  3. The Legislative Capital - Cape Town (Afrikaans: Kaapstad; Xhosa: iKapa)
There are also a number of other cities in South Africa, the largest of which (in fact the largest city in the country) is Johannesburg, which as of 2001, was home to about 3.2 million people.
