South African Economy
Currently, South Africa has the second-largest economy in Africa due to its diverse offerings. Natural resources, tourism, agriculture, and manufacturing all contribute to the South African economy. 

One of the most biodiverse countries on Earth, South Africa is a place of endless natural beauty. As well as having diverse flora and fauna, the landscapes and climes vary widely across South Africa. Everything from mountain ranges to cold- and warm-water beaches to highveld can be found.

Another draw of South Africa is the cities, specifically Cape Town. In fact, Cape Town has recently been voted the world’s best destination for tourism. The city is not only full of history; it also brims with natural beauty, offers interesting nightlife, and is a foodie paradise.
