No, South Africa hasn’t any national sport, but Football, Rugby and Cricket are well known sports.

Do they have any famous people?

The most famous South African person has to be Nelson Mandela “Mandiba”. He is well-known all over the world and did a great work the time he lived.  In addition is Desmond Tutu another famous person.

What is typical South Africa?

The climate is often very hot and sometimes it is long periods of drought.  The African kitchen is very varied, but they are known for their commodities. And one other thing they are known for is their wild animals in the country. They have beautiful beaches where it is great surf opportunities. Many of the beaches are also protected against sharks.

Do they have any national monuments?

One thing is the castle of good hope. The castle of good hope can you find in Cape Town. This is the oldest building in South Africa and was built between 1666 and 1679. One other national monument is the Freedom Park.  The park will strive to accommodate all of the country`s experiences and symbols to tell a story about the struggle of humanity for freedom in South Africa.


Here are some questions we would like if you answered for us:

–      How do you celebrate your national day?

–      Do you have any special traditions?

    Very nice post! I’ve learned a lot new about these two countries that I didn’t know before! You have a really nice site too 🙂 I would like to get an update when you get the answers to the questions you asked. Unfortunately I can’t help you… Could you post some pictures from South Africa and Australia that’s the only thing I can “criticize” you for. 🙂
