South Africa is an enormous country, the size of Spain and France combined, and its variety of landscapes includes everything from the pleasant Garden Route of the Western Cape to subtropical forest and semi-desert. It’s a prime African meeting point for diverse cultures, as you will discover when you travel to South Africa with Qatar Airways.
South Africa is often synonymous with cultural diversity, and as such, has been nicknamed the ‘Rainbow Nation.’ With numerous official languages and various ethnic groups spread right across the country. With different tradition and influences featured across the years, it’s no wonder that the cities are real examples of cultural melting pots, creating a unique and memorable urban experience. Each region, however, remains uniquely distinct from its neighbour, with distinguished styles of architecture, dress and crafts.
