Locations

As a premier tourism destination, South Africa offers locations filled with beauty, symbolism and a rich history of human endeavour.

From vast mountain ranges and lakes, tropical-style beaches, rolling wheat fields, mysterious forests, meteorite descents of the Tswaing region, to the Maropeng cradle of humankind plateau. You can find just about any scenic view in this one country, be it dessert areas of the Kalahari or the lush forestry of KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo and Mpumalanga regions; from mud huts to business district skyscrapers that can rival most cities in the world, South Africa has it all.

There are many faces to the South African landscape that add to its unique culture. For Lord of War alone, South Africa doubled for more than 14 countries, including Bolivia, Beirut, Sierra Leone, Indonesia, Berlin and USA.
