South Africa: Dream Destination-Yes or No?


Craig, Anglican Journal


WHILE SOUTH AFRICA has often been described as "the world in one country," describing both the country's physical and cultural diversity, many people ask us about personal security and whether it is a safe country to visit. The press often plays upon our fears, noting the supposedly high levels of violence within the country, the extent of AIDS in the region and the potential for racial problems.

They tell us about the kindness of the people, the glories of the food and the diversity of all they have seen and experienced.

Whether you plan to travel on an escorted tour or to travel on your own, you should allow sufficient time to become immersed into the social heritage that is South Africa today. Allow time and make the effort to interact with the many races that together make up this unique land--from the pretty streets of Soweto to the villages of the Zulu, from the exclusive resort areas of Plettenberg Bay to charming rural districts like Oudtshoorn and Caledon, from cosmopolitan Durban to the delights of Cape Town. …
