Looking to travel South Africa?  It’s an amazing country that has faced many challenges throughout its existence.  It is a country full of rich cultural and ethnic diversity that has overcome massive obstacles to strive to reach unity as a single nation that celebrates this diversity.  South Africa has overcome colonialism, slave trade, the Cold War, and the horrors of Apartheid.  In doing so, South Africa has many things to celebrate: including its rich diversity, 20th year of Democracy and arts & culture.
