Magnificent South Africa is a celebration of one of the world’s most beautiful regions. Diversity is the single word that best sums up the nature of this land, vividly evident in its myriad landscapes and in the mix of its peoples. Here, strikingly revealed in more than 160 large-format, full-colour photographs and a concise text, are historic towns, hidden hamlets and modern cities, vast spaces and heat-hazed horizons, mountain ramparts and broad grassland plains, game-rich savanna, bushveld scrub, arid desert and emerald pastures, wild seashore and striking coastal terrace.

An informative overview of the land and its peoples, its turbulent history and its economy is followed by a series of eye-catching regional features, each focusing on a particular area and its distinctive attractions. Some, like Cape Town’s Table Mountain, the Kruger National Park, Durban’s Golden Mile, the towering heights of the Drakensberg, the Garden Route in the south and the subtropical shorelines of the east, are world-renowned; others are little known, even to South Africans.

Magnificent South Africa is an evocative profile of a fascinating country – a book for the home, the perfect gift for family and friends, and a superb memento for those who have spent time discovering South Africa for themselves.
