Where is South Africa?

South Africa is, as the name suggests, right at the bottom of the African continent. It spans the entire southern end of the continent, with coastlines on both the Indian and Atlantic Oceans.

South Africa has three capital cities. Pretoria is the political capital and Cape Town is the legislative capital. The country’s 12th largest city, Bloemfontein, is the judicial capital.

South Africa is known as the ‘rainbow nation’ in recognition of its diverse ethnic mix. This is reflected by the fact there are no less than 11 official languages here. Many South Africans are fluent in at least two languages, with the most spoken language being IsiZulu, followed by isiXhosa, Afrikaans, and English. English is something of a ‘lingua franca’, however, and a common language of communication, especially in the larger cities.

The currency of South Africa is the rand, with each rand divided into 100 cents.

There are direct flights to South Africa from all over the world. Then, once you’re here, you can rely on the country’s efficient public transport system to get you around.


Business in South Africa

South Africa is the third-largest national economy in Africa and is in many ways the continent’s most advanced nation.

The Gauteng province, central locations which includes Johannesburg and Pretoria, is the wealthiest area of the country. About 70% of all South Africa’s companies have their headquarters in Johannesburg. Cape Town is the second-largest business centre in South Africa.

The principal industries in South Africa include mining (gold, diamonds, and other resources). Other industries include metalworking, textiles, technology, financial services, tourism, and business process outsourcing. Almost two-thirds of South Africans now work in the service sector.

Some of the largest companies in the country include telecoms group Vodacom, British American Tobacco, Standard Bank, and mining company Anglo American. Others include commodities producer Glencore, mining company BHP Biliton, and brewer Annheuser Busch Inbev.

Amazon, Standard Bank, Bloomberg, Vodacom, Old Mutual, and the ‘big four’ accountancy firms all have offices in Cape Town.


Things To Do in South Africa

Nelson Mandela is certainly the most celebrated figure in South Africa’s history. In Johannesburg, visit Mandela's house in Soweto, now a museum about his life. Visitors to Cape Town can take the ferry to Robben Island where he was held captive for 27 years. This site is also now a museum.

If you’re in Cape Town, a hike or a cable car ride to the 1,086-metre summit of Table Mountain is a must to take in the incredible views of the city, the sea, and the surrounding countryside. 

Gold mining is a key part of the country’s economy and, of the mines you can visit, Kromdraai, just outside Johannesburg, is one of the finest.

South Africa is one of the best countries in the world for safari tours. Perhaps the best safaris are to be found in the Kruger National Park in the north-east of the country, where if you’re lucky you’ll see at least some of the ‘big five’ – lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and buffalos.

A trip to South Africa might also not be complete without a visit to a winery. Groot Constantia is the oldest winery in Africa and is located just outside Cape Town. Also, there are world class excellent restaurants across South Africa.



By Air

O.R. Tambo International Airport, located 15 miles north-east of Johannesburg city centre, is the busiest airport anywhere in Africa. Regular flights leave here for London, Amsterdam, Paris, Munich, Frankfurt, Madrid, Rome, New York, Beijing, Sydney, and many other locations across the globe.

Cape Town International Airport is 12 miles south-east of the city centre. Illustrating South Africa’s status as an economic powerhouse within Africa, this airport is the third- largest in all of Africa, meaning that the country has two of the continent’s three busiest airports.

By Rail

Gauteng Metrorail is the biggest city metro rail system in the country. It has over 200 stations in Johannesburg, Pretoria, and nearby areas. An additional express service also links the two cities and O.R. Tambo Airport. MetroRail Western Cape has regular trains from Cape Town’s suburbs to the city centre.

Long distance sleeper trains connect Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban, Pretoria, and East London. South Africa is a large country, so for example the journey from Cape Town to Johannesburg typically takes more than 24 hours even on the fastest trains. There might also be just a few departures per week on each route, rather than a daily service.

By Bus

Cape Town’s city bus network has services every few minutes on some of the most popular routes to its suburban locations. Johannesburg is proud of its modern Rea Vaya Transit Service, which runs every five minutes during busy times to Soweto.
