One of the most visited countries in Africa, South Africa offers history, landscapes, wildlife, adventures, food, and business opportunities. To serve these visitors, the country offers a wide diversity of guest accommodations, from luxurious five-star hotels to a treehouse in a national park, and everything in between.

South Africa is as geographically diverse as its eleven national languages. The country is a melting pot that includes indigenous Africans, immigrants from England, India and several Asian countries, as well as Afrikaners of Dutch and German ancestry. South Africa is home to a remarkable mix of people; one of the most Western of the African nations, the country is also proudly African.

Situated in southernmost Africa, South Africa's borders include both the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean. The Republic of South Africa is five times larger than the United Kingdom and twice the size of France. Due in part to its size, South Africa has one of the most diverse landscapes on the continent, with pristine beaches along the coast and vast plains, desert, inland mountains, urban centers, and exotic natural settings.

As diverse as its landscape, South Africa offers a wide variety of guest lodging options, including five-star hotels, boutique hotels, extravagant resorts, guest houses, safari or game lodges, private homes, bed and breakfasts, self-catering facilities, backpacker hostels, and any of a number of camping options.

Visitors to South Africa's Limpopo Province can even stay at the Safari Camp where Nelson Mandela wrote his memoirs. Situated in the Shambala Private Game Reserve, the property is designed as a representation of the African bush country, with carefully controlled populations of African animals roaming the reserve. Comfortable guest bandas are situated along natural streams.

Whatever the type, region, or length of stay, visitors to South African can probably find guest accommodations to their liking.
