"I believe that South Africa is the most beautiful place on earth. Admittedly, I am biased, but when you combine the natural beauty of sunny South Africa with the friendliness and cultural diversity of our people, and the fact that the region is a haven for Africa's most splendid wildlife, then I think that we have been blessed with a truly wonderful land". - Nelson Mandela, President

South Africa reasonably presents itself as a "world in one country". The immense diversity of its landscape, the beauty of its shoreline and cities, the cultural mix, one of the six "Floral Kingdoms" of the world, its wildlife, its indigenous architecture and a climate which ranges from sub alpine to sub tropical, from alpine skiing to water skiing all confirm this view.
