General South Africa Travel Information
South Africa is the economic powerhouse of Africa with first world infrastructure and a thriving economy. The road and rail network is well developed making travel around South Africa easier and the country is open to investment and development.
Such is the faith in the future of South Africa; it was awarded the rights to host the world’s largest sporting event, the 2010 Soccer World Cup.
The positive aspects of South Africa are dampened by social problems such as HIV, poverty and crime. However, there is still a very positive attitude towards the future.
South Africa is a heady mix of third and first world cultures � along with the best and least crowded beaches in the world. Throw in wildlife parks such as the Kruger Park, beautiful natural scenery, a great infrastructure, and a stable post-apartheid environment and you have a great travel destination waiting to happen.
