Progress and security, the best pinot noir and a surfer’s paradise, snow-white beaches, and trendy artists’ galleries – all this is about South Africa. Here, at the equator, progress meets a taste of real life, and the relaxed atmosphere of the coast alternates with the lights and drive of Cape Town’s Long Street. Inspired by the sound of the ocean and the warm sun, artists and sculptors create masterpieces of contemporary African art that are prized around the world. And the chefs amaze you with delicious dishes made from the freshest organic produce.
