International Health Insurance QuoteSouth Africa is officially known as the Republic of South Africa (RSA) and is a very dynamic country located at the southern tip of Africa. It has a multi-ethnic society that has many cultures, religions and languages. After the fall of Apartheid rule in 1994, South Africa has made many strides in reconciliation and instituted a vibrant democracy. There is a mix of extreme poverty and wealth in many of the cities in South Africa. Also, the crime rate in the nation is quite high and expats should take safety precautions when travelling in the nation. The most well recognized and largest cities in South Africa are Johannesburg and Cape Town.
