South Africa, a country located at the southern end of the African continent, is an immense territory (1,224,297 km2) facing the Atlantic to the west and the Indian Ocean to the east. In the far south, the Cape of Good Hope separates the two oceans. Inside the country is Lesotho, a small independent state.  The Republic of South Africa enjoys incredible diversity, both in terms of its population and its geography and culture.

The South African population, or “Rainbow Nation”, has around fifty million inhabitants, of which approximately 80% are black, 10% white and 10% Asian and mixed race. The country has been repeatedly hit by large waves of immigration, mainly from other African countries including Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Lesotho. The South African space has been structured by the long history of the separation of human groups, still very real almost thirty years after the end of the apartheid regime.

The landscapes vary from high mountains to arid deserts to magnificent beaches and animal reserves. South Africa has an extraordinary wild fauna and flora.
