I have seen photos of South Africa before and was really excited to do this Photo Gallery. Here is one small country in the world, that also has a large beachfront, as it decends down to the lower part of the oceans of the world. It also still has amazing wildlife that Africa is well known for. Taking a look at the photo above is just one small sample of the great scenery options you have in South Africa. Let’s explore the many different photographers who have donated these free images. And a special thanks to Pixabay, Unsplash and Pexels for the amazing photo library they have of photos around the world.

South Africa is a very diverse country. In fact they have 11 languages that are spoken here. I hope that isn’t confusing. Plus, they are proud to say that they held the FIFA WORLD CUP, and that was in 2010, and did you know that South Africa is the only country other than England to host the soccer, rugby (1995) and cricket (2003) world cups?

To really enjoy the wildlife available for all to enjoy, they have several National parks, and Safari’s available to enjoy the amazing amount of “African Wildlife”.

South Africa is unique because the government was divided into three sections. No other country does that, that I’m aware. Cape Town is the legislative Capital, Pretoria is the administrative capital, and Bolemfontein is the Judicial capital. Parliament meeting take place for six months in Cape Town, and Pretoria.

The Union buildings house the President’s official office and you know you are in the right place because of the larger-than-life statue of Nelson Mandela is part of the beautiful grounds and gardens.

When you see a picture of penguins from South Africa, you are wondering how you can get lions, elephants and penguins all in the same country, well remember that the country of South Africa is extremely close to Antartica.

*** One of the most interesting things about South Africa is that two Nobel Peace winners actually lived on the same street. Both Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu lived here at some point in their lives.

*** This country of South Africa is one of the most progressive countries in the world. The groundbreaking surgery was carried out on Louis Washkansky and Dr. Barnard in December of 1967.
