South Africa is in the southern part of Africa and shares borders with Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe. It's known as "The Rainbow Nation" because of its love for diversity, with three capitals, eleven languages, and lots of national parks and special places recognized by the United Nations. South Africa is famous for its stunning landscapes and amazing animals. You'll find landmarks like Table Mountain and Kruger National Park, plus a vibrant cultural scene.
But South Africa also has a tough history because of apartheid, a system that separated people by their race. This ended in the early 1990s when Nelson Mandela was freed, and the country had its first democratic elections. Now, South Africa is a democratic country with a mix of people, a variety of jobs like mining and farming, and it's part of important groups like the African Union and the United Nations, helping make decisions on the continent and around the world.
