Big country which occupies all the southern part of the Africa, wetted to east from the Indian Ocean and to west from the Atlantic Ocean.
After the racial long segregation of the apartheid (1948 - 1991), today the multiracial cohabitation and the full tutelage of the minority groups is guaranteed by the constitution of 1997, even though the differences between white and black are still very strong.
In fact in almost all the nation there are heavy problems owed to the conditions of poverty of big part of the population, that lead up to ambient decay, to common delinquency and to the unbelievable diffusion of the AIDS, that strikes almost always young people of black race.
The nation is very beautiful thanks to the spectacular landscapes owed to the particular morphology of the territory (in prevalence a plateau with borders raised which finish in magnificent slopes: Drakensberg) and to the wild and mostly undamaged nature.
Besides the hundreds of kilometers of spectacular coasts offer breath-taking images as to Cape S.Francis, to the lagoon of Knysna, to Cape Agulhas and at the Cape of Good Hope.
