South Africa has a rich history and culture based on its multiethnic society. But the diversity of the country expands beyond its population, and is exemplified in the variety of attractions to tourists and students alike. For those interested in wildlife, South Africa is an exemplary location to study African ecosystems, especially at the country’s world– renowned Kruger National Park. For those interested in a more urban scene, the country offers Johannesburg, its ‘City of Gold,’ including endless entertainment, shopping, as well as freedom tours focusing on the country’s historic apartheid struggle. South Africa became independent of the United Kingdom on 31 May 1961.
Students can explore the wonders of South Africa through Affiliated programs including AIFS, CEA, and CIS, among others.
