South Africa is a country located on the Southern coast of the African continent, neighboring other countries including Zimbabwe and Namibia. It has the largest and most developed economy on the continent and is a country that is rich in natural resources. The national culture is a blend of Africa, European and Indian cultures reflecting the diverse population, immigration and colonial history of the region. People in South Africa speak more than 10 languages, but English and Afrikaans are the most commonly used, especially in professional environments. South Africans practice many religions but Christianity, Islam and Hinduism are the most dominant. South Africans are friendly and accommodating, and will invite you to enjoy braai, or roasted meat, which is a tradition with communities coming together to eat, drink and enjoy each other’s company. Current local political tensions are high with the current president being pressured to step down amid charges of corruption and abuse of power. (Kwintessential).
