Gap Year in South Africa

“The Rainbow Nation” is famous for many things: Ghandi, Table Mountain, President Mandela, cricket… So what don’t you know about this beautiful country? Jutting out into the Atlantic and Indian oceans at the very tip of Africa, it couldn’t be more different from its fellow African nations. A modern business centre, temperate climate, and fertile agricultural land have propelled it to the middle of the world’s income charts. And South Africans don’t just work hard – they play hard too. The country’s sports teams compete on a world platform and, with the Football World Cup landing in 2010, South Africa is at the top of its game. Could it be perfect for your Gap Year?
