Here are some general highlights from my trip to South Africa.
South Africa is definitely a good place for a first time trip to Africa. It has the wildlife and culture of Africa along with modern infrastructure and convienences.
South Africa has all of the exotic animals that draw many of us to Africa. Along with a few, like Penguins, that you wouldn't expect
South Africa also has modern cities steeped with a mixture of African and European influences.
All said if visit SA, it is not a place you will soon forget. It has wonderful wildlife and ancient culture but also more than its fair share of modern problems from AIDS to mind numbing poverty and social inequality.
- Pros:Fantastic Natural Beauty, wildlife and rich culture
- Cons:Still a large disparity in the lifestyles of the people
- In a nutshell:Great page to visit!
The Currency of South Africa is the Rand. It's currently worth about 1/6 of a US dollar. more travel advice
This hotel is everything you expect in a Sheraton. A fantastic location right across from the Union Building. more travel advice
