A sense of
pride in what we have achieved in our country in its short democratic history
after its tumultuous past is evident in all South African do on the
international stage. Since April 1995 when all people in the country could cast
their vote for the first time, South Africa has made immense leaps and strides
both internally and internationally.
The country on the tip of Africa is the political and economic powerhouse of the
Continent and has played host to a number of large international sporting events
amongst the largest being the IRB Rugby and ICC Cricket World Cups and the
country also recently played host to the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup, the largest
sports event on the planet, from 11th June – 11th July 2010
Although we are justifiably proud of the eventing capacity and capabilities
evident in the country, we are also proud of what our country has to offer all
visitors that grace our shores. Friendly people, sea, mountains, wildlife,
cultural experiences, wide open spaces and masses of sky all make a visit to the
country a memorable one.
