Study In South Africa

South Africa, despite all its troubles and sordid history of Apartheid, is now one of the most important, democratic countries on the African continent. Indeed, its political and cultural fortune can be said to have come full circle in 1994, when Nelson Mandela, the anti-Apartheid activist who was imprisoned for 27 years, was elected president of the country. Today, his party, the African National Congress, is still in power, though now under the leadership of Thabo Mbeki. The political turnaround this country has experienced has been extraordinary. 
 
But South Africa is about so much more than just politics, though it is understandably the subject on which most people tend to focus.
 
Perhaps more than anything, South Africa is famous for its widely varied natural environment. "South Africa is located at the extreme south of Africa, with a long coastline that stretches more than 2,500 kilometres (1,550 mi) and across two oceans (the Atlantic and the Indian). South Africa has a great variety of climate zones, from the extreme desert of the Kalahari near Namibia to lush subtropical climate along the border with Mozambique. It quickly rises over a mountainous escarpment towards the interior plateau known as the Highveld." Within these varied landscapes lie some of the most astounding examples of biodiversity in the world. Indeed, "South Africa has more than 20,000 different plants, or about 10% of all the known species of plants on Earth." Visitors have seemingly infinite options when it comes to choosing how to experience all these natural wonders, though safaris are, perhaps expectedly, the most popular.
