South Africa, dubbed as the "Land of Hope", never fails to make it to a traveler's top places in the bucket list.  Teeming with wild flora and fauna, unique culture, and diverse ecosystem, this African nation deserves the highlight of a true adventure.  But beyond the sights, South Africa is a promising destination to those who are looking forward to settle lives overseas.

South Africa is the most modern of all the African nations.  Unlike neighboring countries, South Africa houses modern cities such as Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban, Pretoria, and Knysna among others that have already adapted to the demands of commercial tourism.  But if you are wondering if South Africa has lost its advocacy for environment protection, do not fret.  South Africa has been awarded with prestigious travel awards, not to mention that they have the most progressive airports today.

South Africa boasts a unique blend of wildlife, culture, and landscapes.  Are you looking for a "one size fits all' vacation?  South Africa boasts a unique balance between infrastructure, wildlife, and culture.  Get to know indigenous tribes and learn their language when you travel further down south to the remote villages of Karoo and Tulbagh.

South Africa provides authentic safari adventure experience.  No other safari experience comes close with the one in South Africa.  Meet the famous Bengal tiger that is among the endangered species of tigers in the wild.  Climb Mount Kilimanjaro, one of the highest peaks of the world's seven continents for a bird's eye view of the valleys below.

In South Africa, your money has seven times the purchase power.  One US dollar is equivalent to 7 Rand, the official monetary of South Africa.  On the other hand, 1 British pound is equivalent to 14 Rand, while 1 Euro is equivalent to 10 Rands.  When you travel with these major currencies in hand, it is certain that you get higher purchasing power in the whole of South Africa.
