South Africa is located at the southern tip of Africa. It is bordered by Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Swaziland and Lesotho (which is completely surrounded by South Africa). It is a vast country with widely varying landscapes, 11 official languages, and an equally diverse population. South Africa is renowned for its wines and is one of the world’s largest producers of gold. It has the strongest economy in Africa, and is an influential player in African politics.
